What makes a great leader? First of all a perfectly balanced blend of qualities; the ability to stand out - be authoritative without overpowering. Show courage and endurance - you will lead the way and set standards. Very important; be appealing and refreshing to the people. This stereotypical portrait applies whether referring to politics, religion or maybe even this outstanding IPA.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Pale yellow color with a one-finger head and plenty of carbonation
S: Lots of fresh citrus rind hops with notable floral and pine notes, just a hint of brown sugar
T: Matches the nose perfectly. Citrus rind initially then pleasant floral and pint notes. The hops are definitely the most prominent element, little in the malt department
M: Medium-bodied, crisp and bitter with a fairly lengthy finish
O: A hop-lover's IPA. Quite tasty in that department but lacking malt to provide contrast. Still a very tasty beer worth trying

Movin' to the country, gonna drink a lot of hops,
I'm movin' to the country, gonna drink me a lot of hops,
Movin' to the country, gonna drink a lot of hops,
Movin' to the country, gonna drink a lot of hops.
Hops come, in a can,
They were put there by a man,
In a factory downtown.
And if I had my little way, I'd drink hops everyday,
Some suckin' bitterness in the shade.

Bottled on 4/16/13.Poured into a standard pint glass a dull lemon yellow color with just a great looking firm one finger head just doesn't dissapate,not a fan of the color but a big fan of the pillow-like head.Big citrusy hops jump out in the nose along with some pine underneath,not much malt presence except for mild toastiness.If you like grapefruit and bitterness this your kinda ipa,I love it,intesnse grapefruit juice flavors and some stickiness to go along with some lighter pine resin,again just a faint drier malt presence.I haven't had an in your face sharp hop bomb in awhile and for me this fits the bill.Excellent...in my opinion.

A: hazy gold, big 2” pure white rocky foam collar that produces ledges of lace.
S: some earthy notes on the nose, citrus, light grass.
T: Some light biscuit. Initial palate has some sweet fruit and then by mid-palate it balances with the hop and it simultaneously dries out and becomes juicy.
F: Very creamy, bone dry and fairly light body for an IPA. Carbonation is very soft, moderately low
O: Refreshing, drinkable, well rounded and well balanced. The level of bitterness is similar to what you would find in a gin and tonic.

Poured from a 16 oz. can into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Big three finger white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of clingy lacing.

Smell: A floral and earthy hop forward aroma with hints of citrus and grass. Citrus hop hints of orange, grapefruit, lemon zest, pineapple, and melon. Floral and earthy hops with some hints of grass and pine. Soft pale malt hints of biscuit, cracker, and yeast. Also some honey like sweet hints. A pretty solid smell.

Taste: Like the smell, a juicy and floral hop driven taste with nice notes of citrus and grassy hops. Citrus fruit notes of orange, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, and melon. Floral hop notes along with some earthy notes of grass and pine. Soft bready malt notes of cracker, biscuit, and yeast as well as a little honey sweetness. A pretty nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp, juicy, and very smooth.

Overall: A pretty solid take on an IPA. Good earthy and citrus hop flavors with a clean smooth body.
