Notes are from 5/30
The Kind is a bright pale yellow in the outer parts with some clarity to it, getting hazier delving into the amber recesses. A very fluffy and thick cloud of off-white head rests easily on it at two fingers' height. Lace starts at the very top, forming some webbing and netting as the beer makes its way down the glass.
The nose is all about some dank, oily, resinous hops. This is piney, sure, but even more it's "sprucey." A balance of bready malts puts the hops in perspective.
As in the aroma, the hops put up some dank and resinous bitterness but, interestingly, it doesn't build up. Because of this, the bitterness seems to fall off at the end of every sip. Somewhat metallic and earthy tones conjure thoughts of English varietals.
Crisp and drying with moderate smoothness, the medium body ends up running a little thin.

A - Pours a golden amber with a one-finger foamy white head. Heavy sticky lacing.
S - Nice aroma of sweet malts, floral hops, and citrus.
T - Starts with a nice blend of sweet caramel malts and citrus ( orange & grapefruit). Mid-palate is when the piney hops take over. Finish has more earthy and piney hops leaving a lingering bitterness.
M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth creamy mouthfeel.
O - A pretty good IPA. Definetly for fans of aggressive IPAs.

An overly hopped IPA, however not too bitter and has a wonderful citrus note, almost fruity. The carbonation is just right for such a strong IPA.
The percentage at 6.8 and 76 IBUs is just enough for my personal taste. It is wonderful on tap, you really get the full body of fruity aromas and when poured out of a bottle it retains it's body just as well as on tap.
I have personally met the brewers and yes, they do look just like the picture on the bottle and are just as cool in person. Great IPA

Great easy drinking beer. Has the hop aroma I look for in a good IPA, nice citrus fruit on the front leading into a very nice mouthfeel of malt with a final kick of hops on the back end. Bought this from my bottle shop for $3.29 a 12oz, Going back to pick up a four pack now. Definitely a repeat purchase!
