Pours a murky orange color with two fingers of head. The head lingers and the lacing is superb.

Smell is of of C-hops. Citrus and pungent. There is a good punch of orange and actually some toasty malt profile

Taste is pretty bitter. Surprisingly not as much grapefruit and citrus on the palate as I would expect. The malt profile is a bit toasty. I do get grapefruit and citrus, but the flavoring hops aren't as there as I want.

Adequate carbonation. I do want a bit more body from the malts.

Overall this is a good example of the style, but there are better IPAs out there.

A - pours an amber color with a decent head and good lacing
S - nice pine nose with a solid malt backbone
T - pine up front with a bit of resin. Malt and Carmel on the back
M - mild carbonation and very smooth. Dry finish
O - as a big fan of hop bomb style beers this was a bit lacking in the hops department. Is still a very smooth IPA with a dry finish. Decent beer but not one of my favorite IPAs

A-Pours a clear caramel color. Good head. Frothy and dense. Solid lacing too.

S-Heavy of the malt. Caramel malt sweetness is heavy handed. Behind the malt blanket is a generic display of citrus and pine.

T-The sweetness makes this a balanced IPA. Caramel malt like it going out of style. Pine, grass and grapefruit hops. Slight metallic flavor in the back.

M-Medium bodied. Standard bitterness. Booze is well hidden.

O/D-Failed to impress. The metallic flavor was very slight which I am thankful for. Just another ordinary IPA.
