Bottle shared by someone at Real Ale. Thanks!

A: Transparent golden orange with an inch of white sea foam. Great color, great retention, and great lacing.

S: Herbal and weedy with grassy notes. Light orange and grapefruit that are submissive to the herbal, weedy, and grassy characteristics.

T: Restrained citrus with firm herbal and grassy notes. Light malt presence.

M: Lower medium body with upper medium carbonation.

Overall: Hard to say how fresh this is as it was shared by a friendly stranger. Not very bright or aromatic, and not a lot of flavor. Lots of herbal notes.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. None to very little head or lacing. Very hoppy and citrus aromas, maybe some pine. Hops are dominant on my tongue... a very light coating otherwise very thin in taste. Overall not bad for an American Ipa. Would like to try this as a draft.

A: Pours a hazy golden color, white head. Sticky lacing, nice rings.

S: Well balanced aroma, with flowery and citric hops poking through quite nicely.

T: Taste is pretty well balanced as well. Sweet malt and citric / floral hops blending quite nicely. An assertive bitterness, and a hint of alcohol round out the finish.

M: Medium in body, high carbonation. Hop bitterness is amplified by tight carbonation.

O: A solid IPA, though nothing remarkable.

Thanks Adamb!

A: Pilsner golden. Effervescent, white head. Lots of lace (for who ever the hell cares).

S: Corn, honey, a touch of rye, not much hop aroma, but a clean and fresh smell. I really like to corn.

T: Like a petit barleywine, this is pretty malt forward. I can't really pick apart much about the hops, other than some drying on the finish. Some more flavors from the smell come through, but milder.

M: Very approachable - effervescent, but not desctructive, carbonation. Moderate drying.

O: Not what I dream up when I think IPA, more like a session barleywine. Worth the try.

Bottle into tulip pint.

Orange-hued apricot body with a small white head. The head quickly becomes a film that offers a mere 60% coverage. No lacing. The color is great, but all other attributes of the appearance are disappointing.

Smells glorious: citrusy fruit and tropical fruit notes kill it. I can also tell by smell that this beer is going to be pretty bitter. There is a wonderful aroma here that makes me think of candied pineapple. Smells terrific.

The flavor lets me down a hair sadly-- some bready malt up front with a sugary sweetness (and feel?!) and them the hops just don't seem to live up to the nose. Big dry boozy finish with strong bitterness. The overall feel of the beer is oily and medium-feeling. Firm carbonation, but something at the end remind me of day-old tonic water.

Overall-- I'm sure that if this were available locally I would probably pick it up often enough... But as it is, this beer *almost* works for me. It has good potential...
