picked up locally...one of my favs to keep in the fridge. enjoyed from an urthel tulip.

a - brew poured a transparent orange with 2 fingers of off white foamy head. as the head dissipated it left some nice chunks of foam.

s - slightly toasted, good balance, decent hop.

t - much like the nose, a bit of toastiness, nice malt presence and balanced hopping.

m - medium bodied. easy drinker

o - overall, a well priced, easy drinking ipa that isn't a hop explosion. just a nice good unoffending ipa.

Bottle

A- light amber color. Two finger fluffy head. Great lacing

S- earthy with some bread. Dank.

T- Um. Good. Earthy hops with a bit of sharp Cheddar cheese. A bit of bread in the background.

M- just a bit thick and oily but this a a beer about flavor not feel. Medium carb.

O- good balanced ipa. If you like the earthy side of an ipa this is your friend. I will drink again. Yum!

Poured from a bottle (no freshness data) into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Lovely pour. Color is crystal clear and very light amber with a whispy white head and excellent lacing. Very nice, though somewhat faint, nose is obviously hop-forward. I get lemons, grapefruit, some pine.

The flavor is very well-balanced for an IPA. On the front of the palate you get some nice marmalade-like sweetness quickly met with a nice dose of hops. At no point is the hop bitterness overwhelming. Some of the sweetness even manages to linger a bit on the finish. Mouthfeel is quite firm.

This is a nice, refreshing IPA that drinks more like an American Pale Ale. I enjoyed it and would buy again, if for no other reason than to increase my chances of trying a fresh bottle.
