3.55/5  rDev +17.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

L: Pours a clear dark amber color with a thick and medium sized off white colored head that laces the glass all the way down as it fades.
S: Smells of sweet roasted malts, hints of caramel and then a nice earthy and citrus hop finish in the nose.
T: Tastes of darker and deeper roasted malts than I was expecting, nice caramel and sweetness to it, then a nice less intense earthy and citrus hoppy finish with some pine as well.
M: Smooth, medium bodied, perfect amount of carbonation.
D: Overall a pretty decent take on the style as it has a darker and sweeter malt base than most.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours a hazy amber 2 finger khaki head with a wall of fine lacing.
S - Tart malty aroma, caramel and biscuit malt, some tart citrus juice, a little toasty.
T - Definitely some toasted malt, dark and bitter, some more roasted grain in the back too, very little hop character coming out in this.
M - Kind of a creamy roasty feel to it with a mild bitterness.
O - This would make a better India Brown Ale than an english IPA, its very malt forward with lots of roasty traits.

M-Medium bodied. Soft carbonation. Light bitterness.

O/D-No, no, no.

This local IPA looks golden brown with a very impressive white head and plentiful lacing. Looks very solid. The aroma brings a slightly tart cabbage with strawberry wine and fermenting wheat. There's some cherry malt sweetness too. Decent but not highly inviting. The first mouthful brings an immediate vegetable and dark fruit medley that finishes with a fairly grassy hop bite. I get rhubarb-cherry with a muted maple-malt and vodka-like edges. It's really a plenty tasty treat but if IPA's conjure up hop bitterness aspirations for you, then you will probably be disappointed. This is medium-light bodied with a fairly effervescent feel. Enjoyable for one or two but not fulfilling enough to sustain a session.

3.6/5  rDev +19.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a coppery brown with explosive carbonation that caused my glass to overflow twice. It eventually recedes into a thin cap with a lot of lacing.

S: Caramel malts up front with sweet citrus notes along with a hint of candy sugar as well. There are grass and pine aromas toward the finish.

T: Slight caramel malts at first with dryly bitter grass and pine hop flavors. The finish is clean and only slightly bitter.

M: Medium body with highish carbonation, this beer is dry and crisp feeling.

O: A pretty decent IPA overall. Not terribly complex, but enjoyable and drinkable.
