Picked up a 22oz in a trade with a friend in Maryland. Poured into a Modern Times branded pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazed copper hue. Decent head, weak retention, decent lacing. Smell is all grain and bready malt, mild hop presence...what gives??? Taste is like a pale ale...good but not much in the way of hops...especially for a fresh hop ipa - way too much malt! Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium bodied, mild carbonation, finishes dry with slight bitterness from the hops.

Not an IPA. Definitely a fresh hopped pale ale...good for a pale ale, but critiqued as an IPA, which is what it is listed as. In my opinion, this is not a beer that "celebrates the hop".

Skip!

22 oz bottle poured into a Sam Adams pint glass at cellar temperature.

L – Medium amber color with a 2-finger bubbly, rocky, cream-colored head. Really nice retention and a little bit of patchy lacing. Absolutely crystal clear with lots of bubbles.

S – Some bready and caramel malt but definitely mostly Citra hops with mango, grapefruit, and orange aromas. The hops are there but this doesn’t seem like it’s going to a palate bruiser by any means – not necessarily a bad thing.

T – Follows the nose well. It starts off sweet with bready, caramel malt and citrus and mango flavors. Smooth hop bitterness appears towards the finish. Very balanced.

F – Medium-bodied with good carbonation, a sticky and mouth-coating feel, and a bitter and dry finish. Grapefruit hop bitterness lingers only for a bit.

O – This is a nice IPA. It’s tasty, drinkable, and well-balanced. It seems like I may have the wrong idea about these fresh hop ales – they usually seem to be smooth and balanced and not the bitter beasts that I’m expecting them to be. Either way, this is a good beer, and I’m glad I got to try it.
