Poured into a dimpled beer mug from a bottle.

A-Deep amber orange with some cloudiness. Poured a 2 finger head that left a nice pinkish-off-white foamy surface. Foamy lacing on the glass. Carbonation was present.

S-The smell consisted of bitter hops, citrus fruits, and pine. I was quite pleased with the smell.

T-I could taste strong hops, grapefruit, citrus, pine needles, and a touch of sweet honey malt. Flavors were nicely balanced. The aftertaste tasted exactly the way my mouth feels after eating a grapefruit. The ABV was not noticeable because of the great tastes.

M-It is a medium-bodied brew with light-moderate carbonation. The flavors really felt balanced.

Overall-Nicely done. It is a brew worth buying again. It was a good feeling to pop this open after a long day's work and enjoy the balance of flavors.

Tasted on 9/15 on draft at the Sweet Grass Dairy Cheese Shop:

A - gold/clean copper appearance, 1.5 finger head that clings to the glass

S - Sweet citrus, grass, and a little bit of earthy soil. Faint nose

T - A great blend of flavor. The hops and malts battle it out with lots of earthy green flavors up front followed by a blend of citrus and piney hops.

M - Light-Medium body, crispy/bitey carbonation

O - This is a really good IPA. It's got a certain balance that you don't really find anymore. It seems most people are just cramming hops in there and this beer is not like other modern IPA's. The malts are present as well as the hops but nothing is too overpowering.
