Poured from the growler into a nonic a rich copper color with a tight formed one finger white head that settles pretty slowly.Aromas were a mix of caramel malt and more of a leafy/herbal hop presence,not in your face citrus and pine.A balanced ipa with the hops being somewhat subdued for the style,carame/biscuit and "green" hops are intertwined thru to the finish.Its not hop "heavy" but its a nice quaffable balanced ipa.

On tap at the brewery on 3/3/12.

Pours a copper-amber with no head. The nose has a bright, citrusy aroma that features a little mango and some grapefruit. The flavor is a balance of light, bready malt and heavy citrusy hops. The flavor is simple but drinks well. There is a slight bitterness in the finish that lingers, but is smooth enough for you to want another sip immediately. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and very smooth and almost decent carbonation.

This is a nice, balanced, easy drinking IPA. It's not overly hoppy nor malty. The hops they chose for this one add great drinkability, flavor, and aroma. It's a great compliment to the malt character. I'll definitely have this one again.
