As soon as you open this you get a whiff of what is going to be a decent ipa. The aroma is full, pleasant and hoppy. The look is cloudy and light with just a bit of head.

The taste is very bitter and hoppy. To an extreme, and thus, it is an American style. Well done. Does the rest of the world get this?

It lingers on the tongue with all that bitter rather nicely. Good marks all around. This is a good American ale.

great beer selection at piper's pub, this was on-cask over the weekend.

The head is a frothy web leaving a spongey wall of lace all over the glass. Very cool. It's darker than most pale ales, kind of a clear mahogany. Some red-auburn.

The nose is tame. Sweet malts and some earthiness.

More earthiness and caramel malts in the taste. very smooth. nice bitterness. hopped well: subtle but flavorful.

Finish is awesome. A clean, crisp bitterness hangs around for some time. Very tasty.

Overall this is very good mild beer and i'd like to have it again. it's the kind of beer you could drink and watch a game with.

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Tanish brown with a killer 3+ inch creamy head and tons of lacing.

Smell - Light wet hops, a little malt, not much of a aroma at all.

Taste - Piney bitty hops mixed with a toffe/caramel malt backbone. Really nice hop bite for such a low alcohol amount. Its a different kind of flavor, almost a coffee like porter flavor with the malts. Finish has a hoppy pale ale feel.

MOuthfeel - Light and full of flavor. Tounge gets the hops and malts, were the palette gets more toffee and caramel malts. Aftertaste is slighty bitter and malty.

Overall - Really tasty and flavorful for a session beer. Loved the malt flavors mixed with the hops. Easy to drink and enjoy, i hope the next hop release is as good as this one.

So I had this beer earlier today and loved it. Decided to read some of the reviews on here and was astonished to find out that it rated well below what I expected. I figure I will give it some deserved respect. I didn't take notes so this is a review from memory.

Just some background. I found out that the hop additions are different for each batch. Luckily I think the batch I picked up may be one of the better ones. This one was brewed with Northern Brewer, Palisade, and Citra hops.

The beer is a hazy pale golden color with about a half inch of head and decent lacing left behind. The smell was of floral and citrus hops with hints of yeast. The taste is pretty much all hops with a touch of yeast esters. It has a great crisp citrus taste that overpowers the flavor, and the finish leaves a bitterness in the mouth common for IPAs. I will note that my bottle states 50 IBU and their website says 80 IBU. I'd say the 50 is correct for my bottle. The malts are all left behind (which is awesome for a session IPA), and this surprises me because of the malt bill listed on the bottle. Not a lick of alcohol in sight. This is a beer that would be perfect to bring to a party or cookout in the summer. The mouthfeel is a slight letdown, but far from watery IMO. I think they really nailed it with this one. This brewery is new to my area, so the bottle is probably <1 month old. Not sure of their dating but mine says best by August 2013. I'd put this one up there with All Day and Daytime (maybe even better). Also want to note, let this beer warm up some to let the flavors really shine. It was a little dull right out of the fridge. Recommended to anyone who enjoys hoppy beers.

I had this beer at the blue dog. I was looking for some lower ABV to try, so I tried this one.
It wsa pretty good and tasty.
The color was a deeper golden amber with a fairly tall white head. As the head faded it left some lacing. Medium carbonation. Looks desent to drink.
Aroma has a good hop presence. I can pick out floral and earthy notes along with some pale biscuit malts.
Taste is light and refreshing. I can taste some floral hops but there not very assertive. Malts have a biscuit taste and perhaps some caramel malts.
Drinks a bit couse with a dry and bitter finish.
A pretty good. Is it case worthy? Not yet

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Chill-hazed gold in color, with a rather short head of bright white foam.
Aroma-Earthy hop note
Taste-Pale malt, Northern Brewer earthy hops, faint citrus in the finish, watery grapefruit zest. Light bodied but nice hop flavor. Quite sessionable at 4.0ABV. A good waiting-for-the-burgers-to-be-done brew.

3.8/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Aroma: Bold aroma considering the low 4.0% ABV. Bold citrus hops (single-hopped). Pils malt and caramel from the crystal malt. Some darker malt notes.

Appearance: Dark orange, amber. Crystal clear. Head is off-white. Great retention and intense lacing. Lots of bubbles rising for the duration. Some sediment stuck to the bottom of the bottle.

Taste: Bold hops and mild to moderate malt presence. Citrus and pine from the hops. Quite resinous. Malt is mostly pilsner, little caramel from the crystal malt. Bready, wheat. Hops dominate.

Mouthfeel: Light body. Mild and smooth carbonation. Slick. Finishes mildly dry.

Overall: Quality session pale ale. Bold yet never-harsh hops. Light on the malt, but that's the only way to keep things at 4.0% ABV.

3.78/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy goldenstraw with an impressive head that leaves a web of lace

Smell: Pilsner malts with a hint of grapefruit

Taste: A very clean, bready malt bill opens the flavor parade with the hops developing in the middle; while there is some grapefruit from the citra, it is not overly pronounced and fades a bit in the finish, which is rather dry

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Decent enough for a session IPA but I have had others whose hop profile I prefer to this
