On tap. Clear golden pour. Moderate head and decent lacing. Inviting grapefruit-intense hoppy scent. Feel and taste remind me a lot of Sculpin. Now time to be overly discerning and express personal preference--a bit too bitter and the taste and feel were too typical to make this a standout for me. Overall though, very enjoyable IPA with a hop profile that I really enjoyed. I'm proud this is a product of my home state. (9.0)

Plain, simple, crisp. What an IPA should be.

Tried this on tap at the brewery. Here goes:

A: Fluffy head and plenty of lacing. However, the beer is somewhat hazy-gold in appearance. Well-carbonated, but just average looking, especially considering other IPA's that I've recently had.

S: Best part of the beer. Tons of complex scents, but they're all EXTREMELY well-balanced. Citrus, flowers, grapefruit, herbs - all refreshingly balanced. Not much malt, but the hops are exquisite.

T: Unfortunately, the beer's hop profile doesn't produce the flavors to complement the beautiful olfactory profile. Initial taste citrus followed by overwhelming grapefruit. Grapefruit completely coats the palate, leaving a bitter, lingering aftertaste.

F: Great water quality. Well-carbonated, goes down the tongue smoothly (very smoothly).

O: Good beer, but there are better representations on the style.

A- Light orange, white head that dissipates rather quickly.

S - Floral, Floral, Floral with tangerine and pine on the nose. Very nice.

T - Follows that nose well but with the addition of peach flavors to boot. Returning to nose I did pick up that peach/apricot as well.

M - pungent carbonation, sweet and pleasant light bitter finish.

O - I was very pleased and surprised to find this on tap. New keg tapped right in front of me! Awesome IPA, extremely drinkable with some unique subtle flavors I've not had in an IPA before. I'd put this on par with Maine Beer IPAs....that's a good thing!

From the pour to the nose to the tasting, every attribute about this IPA is absolutely world class - drink this beer if you like IPAs!
