Pours an orange amber hue with a small off white head. Aroma and Taste is of floral citrus hops, yeast, fruity notes with caramel malt. Palate is a medium body, nicely balanced malt and hops with good carbonation. Finish is caramel malt, yeast, fruity with floral pine hops for balance. Overall a good nicely balanced IPA.

Poured into hort tumbler glasses; drnk at 45-55 degrees over 10-20 minutes.

Clear, deep amber with good retention of a cottony head.
Smells like a French Sauvignon Blanc more than a beer—grassy, minerally, and volatile nitrogenous bronze.
Malt is the foundation of the taste experience atop which sits metal, nutmeg, orange, and as it warms, toasted lentils and beans.
Not much impressive about the mouthfeel, but late in gulps, the rear-tongue burn is welcome. Salty pretzels give this beer more appeal.
Overall, it is not representative of the style. But there is a winey richness that keeps one quaffing. It is also more boozy than the 7% ABV would predict.

12 oz bottle.
Looks fine, but has an odd sour/sweet aroma that's a bit musty and funky. {No other signs this bottle was bad]. The flavor is better but lacks any semblance of fresh hops and is insufficiently hoppy for style. The flavor is only very slightly bitter and is quite earthy. Medium body and proper carbonation.

O: Avoid; PLENTY of better IPAs out there.

This beer pours up a light copper. There is a one finger head, with not much retention, but absolutely beautiful picture perfect lacing left on the glass. The smell is pretty weak, but what is there is very citrusy and floral. Tastewise, I'm feeling the love. It's not near as hoppy as some IPAs, but it does have a nice blend of sweet and the grapefruityness on the finish. I like the mouthfeel. It is good and carbonated. Overall pretty good. An easy drinking IPA.

Here is an iPa that is still pale. It's color is just a touch amber. The nose isn't terribly potent but what is there is good citrus piny hop love juice. The beer is crystal clear and has a perfectly balanced hop presence throughout the palate. This is a damn good IPA. The hops are great and fresh and refreshing in this beer. Not over the top orangey or grapefuity either. This beer is also still American IPA, imo. It is not English by any means. Balanced on the finish too with hints of the maltiness. This beer is not drying or too hoppy for the palate. Overall I think this is a great everyday 6pk of some kick ass IPA.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a copper color and a clear texture. There was a small amount of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Good lacing.

S: A decent aroma of hops, malt, and a bit of citrus.

T: Tasted of grain (not a lot, but certainly there), malt, some citrus, and a moderate amount of hops. A pretty solid flavor, though not overly spectacular.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a somewhat slick finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A generally well done (with some rough patches) beer that's definitely drinkable.
