3.65/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bought a growler from a local beer store yesterday. It was filled 2 days ago, so presumably very fresh beer.

A: A pale orange color with a creamy tan head that settles relatively quickly. Solid layer of foam remains on top, but there's not much lacing.

S: Very delicate and well-balanced nose--this is an "east coast" style IPA for sure. Sweet sugar cookie malt, a hint of light citrus, and a big floral hop presence.

T&M: Floral hop flavor starts out before a dry malt comes in mid-palate. There's a white-pepper component here that reminds me of a Belgian-style IPA, interestingly enough. It doesn't bowl one over with intense flavor, but it's quite interesting and rather tasty. I'd say the flavor is definitely closer to an English IPA than American. Body is medium with a zesty carbonation.

D: A fine beer. I've now had the sweet potato lager and this IPA, and I'm anxious to try the rest of Fullsteam's lineup.

Serving type: growler

3.71/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is clear amber yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving delicate lacing on the surface and a collar consisting of large bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose—oranges seem to stand out in particular—along with hints of caramel malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell in that it is accentuated by flavors of orange citrus hops, which contribute a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a hop-forward IPA but isn't that difficult to drink because it doesn't seem too heavily bodied.

3.76/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a crystal clear copper in color in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation slowly rising from the bottom of the glass and light amounts of golden yellow + amber highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall sudsy foamy white head that reduces to a small medium thick patch and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of herbal + grassy hops over light aromas of caramel malts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of slightly sweet caramel malts. That is followed by moderate flavors of herbal and grassy hops which imparts a light to moderate amount of bitterness which lingers.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Pretty well balanced between the hops and malts/sweetness and bitterness with a well hidden alcohol which makes this beer easy to drink.
