Appearance - A light golden color with a head that explodes out of the cans. Really good clarity, no haze at all.

Smell - Smells pleasant with grapefruit undertones and some floral sweetness. Not a very strong smell.

Taste - It tastes hoppy without being too bitter. The malt body is too light but on the same token the hops did not get to shine enough. More of a light-bodied pale ale taste. Just comes off as not very exciting. Floral and grapefruit tastes take center stage.

Mouthfeel - A lot of carbonation leaves when the beer is poured, leaving the beer itself too watery.

A pint at Red's Porch on 9/20/11

Clear, yellow with a short lived head and no lace. Very muted aroma of fruit. East coast IPA style flavor. Earthy hops and some grain. Medium body and carbonation. Good but not great IPA. An admirable product from a fledgling brewery in a town not know for its beer.

12 oz can pours a fairly clear, dark gold color with a bubbly white head. Nice lacing.

Nose is juicy, resinous, tropical and piney hops. Caramel maltiness is there, doing a bit of backseat driving along with a whiff or two of nutty yeast.

Earthy malt and nuttiness adds a unique perspective on the IPA style. The hops are not as bright and juicy as the nose would indicate, but the resiny bitterness is still there aplenty. Something about the malts does not jive with me...too earthy, peat-like almost. The love-child of a menage-a-trois between an East Coast IPA, heavy rye beer and an English bitter. Im a little disappointed in this after having the most excellent Pearl Snap Pilsner, but I can see this having appeal to plenty of folks...just not me. I prefer a much cleaner, citrusy/tropical hop-flavor heavy brew in my IPAs.
