Pours a huge, white head with great persitence. Nice, bright citrus aroma. Hazy straw color. Starts EXTREMELY bitter with huge notes of grapefruit and citrus rind, with a touch of pine in the back. There is (surprisingly) some malt showing through. The bitterness rapidly drops to create a slightly malty, citrus rind bitterness lingering into the finish.

This isn't too bad. Definitely West Coast styled, which isn't my favorite. I was really surprised by the malt presence here (i.e. detectable) because that's surprising for the style.

Amber on the pour. Wow, outstanding hoppy nose. Pine and floral scents. This is a really well-balanced IPA. Floral, resiny, citrusy, dryer sheety hops are smoothed out by a thick, oozy slug of caramel malt. This is a classic Midwest take on a West Coast IPA.

Undated bottle at 50 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma nice mixture of pine and hemlock
Head large (5 cm), white, creamy with a few rocks, very slowly diminishing to a 3 mm layer
Lacing small islands
Body yellow, slight hop haze.
Flavor initial blast of piney goodness, fading quickly to a tropical freshness, then completely gone; no alcohol, no malt, no diacetyl
Palate medium, slightly oily, lively carbonation

A very nice IPA at only 70 well-hidden IBUs. Very refreshing. I’ve had this both bottled and on draft, and it’s always pleasing. Virtually every trip to Cleveland contains at least one visit to the brew kettle for fresh beer and good food.
