I just tried this beer and think it is very tasty with a nice dark amber color. The smell is not as interesting but the beer tastes great and gives a kick. Mouthfeel is good also. Overall- a good beer which grows on you and that is not a bad thing. I will drink again.

Enjoyed on tap at Greenbush. Served in a shaker pint.

A: Pours an amber and peach color with a fluffy white head forming on the pour. The head has some yellowish tint to it as well. The head recedes slowly leaving behind sticky cascades of lace.

S: Grassy and floral on the nose. Mild citrus notes in the background as well. Sweet malt bill background.

T: The taste follows the nose but is a little more amped up. Very grassy and floral with a nice little citrus bite to it. Mild grapefruit with a residual bitterness and a light sweet cracker malt body.

M: Really drinkable and refreshing. Light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Sweet and floral finish.

O: A very nice and refreshing single IPA. I could definitely drink a few on a hot summer day. Nice balanced as well.

Brewed with Golden Promise, Gambrinus, Munich, Belgian Aromatic, and Crystal 60L. Hopped with Columbus, Amarillo, Cascade, and Spalt. Fermented with House yeast, which I'm guessing is Nottingham because it's highly compact and flocculant and the beer is brilliantly clear.
67 ibu, 6.7% ABV, 12º Lovibond. $1.79 for a 12oz bottle @ Bevco.

Pours out to a brilliantly clear dark copper, forming a tall whipped and creamy light yellow head with superior retention and beautiful lacing, in part due to it's brisk carbonation, ~3.25 carbs or so. The nose is nice...a little cat piss, a little grassy green hops, a touch of pine, a touch of skunkweed, sitting on top of a grainy malt base with some toast and some mango esters. The mouthfeel is a little dry and hop astringent with tannin astringency as well. Medium bodied. The alcohol is a touch harsh and imparts a peppery aftertaste with some moderate fusels. The malts are well balanced despite the pleasantly firm bitterness with lots of toasted bread and some apricot in the middle.

A peculiar beer. A little incohesive but tasty. Worth trying.

Pours dark, almost like a dark amber or light brown ale. It's a little cloudy. 2 fingers of off-white head with fine foam and excellent head retention. Sticky and appetizing lacing. Cool bottle art.

Smell of delicate and low alpha aroma hops on the front end. It's sweet and not too complex. Crisp, simple, and refreshing.

The beer is little watered down. Delicate hops on the backside which are citrusy (mostly lemon). A little dry on the finish, which is a little bitter and unpleasant. Nonetheless, it's session-able.

Soda-like, light-bodied, and crisp. Not a lot going on here.

I like this beer, but it's not at all special. I would really like more depth, more body, and quite generally, more flavor.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but was released recently. Pours hazy golden orange color with a nice 2 finger dense and fluffy cream colored head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, orange zest, grapefruit, lemon zest, floral, pine, caramel, honey, and light bread. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of hop notes with good malt balance. Taste of tangerine, pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, grapefruit, light pine, floral, caramel, light honey, and light bread. Moderate citrus bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pineapple, light pine, floral, caramel, light honey, and light bread on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a nice moderate malt balance; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice IPA. Great hop complexity and balance of flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
