(Served in an American Pint Glass)
A- This beer pours a deep orange body that is clear but slightly dense. There is a thick light tan foam on top that is supported by a sea of carbonation.
S- This beer has a green earthy pine flavor with a hint of cologne to the hops and a cream note comes through when it warms.
T- This beer has a soft pale malt note with a bigger green pine hop bite with some good depth to the hops.
M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a slightly creamy texture.
D- This beer has a good malt support to a good hop flavor with some nice depth.

At Thomas Creek right now...don't know if its permanent, but they've changed up the recipe for Class Five. Its much more balanced and better hopped with a bigger citrus flavor. It has changed enough for me to up my rating! Stop by the brewery for a fresh taste, may take a little while for bottles to start circulating. Edited 9/12/14

Mixed feelings. Balanced IPA, loved the dark caramel malt mixed with the hops. But, it could have used some more hop presence. Although, I rated this beer higher than others, its not my favorite. Solids IPA and I would suggest trying, but this is not a hop head beer by any means.
