4.21/5 rDev -2.1%
Poured into a pint glass, this is a slightly hazy orange-amber beer that develops a large inch-thick head of airy foam--it features excellent head retention, still large after a minute. The nose offers a big bouquet of citrusy hoppiness, readily scentable even while the beer is on the table. Really delicious flavor, too, with gobs of citrusy hop flavor, while the bitterness is not really all that high: emphasis is on taste. The malt adds some sweetness but not any real malty flavor. Finish leaves a lingering hop taste. Body is light despite the 6+% strength.
This was a real surprise. The other beers I've had from Brew Kettle this week have been fairly ordinary. This is a great IPA.

4.25/5 rDev -1.2%
Pours orange amber with gold highlights, slight haze. Serene, glowing and golden. Creamy head of off white foam that leaves lace. Hop bomb nose. With a citrus and with fruitiness, a good floral perfume. The nose is like a fountain of hops that is shooting into the air spectacularly. A bit of honey sweetness on the nose. Grapefruit, citrus orange and mango. It surprised me with a bit of light sweet caramel on the palate first and then that bushel of fruit. A dry cracker malt and fruit that was both sweet and tart. Lovely light mouthfeel that stayed west coast style light even though there was some malt flavor on the palate. This one drinks juicy and then there's a bitter. A staunch firm and lasting bitter that reminds you as it lingers of all that sweet and delectable fruit.
