Been told to get and try this one - finally here! Poured a deep golden, clear with a thick ivory head. Lace in the Corsendonk tulip sticking like gorilla glue.

Sharp, stinging pine in the aroma, with a citrus slice lurking underneath. Quaff is a woody pine, rotten wood, I guess. Not a good IPA at all, IMO.

Sorely disappointed in this one. One sixer and I'm done.

Poured into a 4oz sampling glass at a promo event.

A: Orange/amber color, with a thin white head that didn't last or lace well.

S: There was a floral bouquet of citrus (pineapple, pink grapefruit, etc), but it was way overpowering by sweet orange, as if someone had mixed it with O.J. concentrate. Was a little nervous to take a sip.

T: No evidence of hop bitterness whatsoever, except for a dryness on the aftertaste, that I can only attribute to a hop presence. The flavor, like the nose, was WAY overpowered by orange/tangerine sickly-sweet flavor. Given all of the positive reviews I read, I was WAY disappointed.

M: Medium-bodied and decently carbonated.

D: I just couldn't get past the orange flavor dominance. If I wanted orange juice, I would've asked for Tropicana.

I really hope that this was just a bad batch, because I intend on giving it a second shot.

On Tap

The Fox and Hound
Peoria, AZ

Dark copper in color with a moderately sized light khaki colored head that leaves lines of lace down the glass.

A bready aroma complemented by a bit of caramel and bittering hops.

The hop flavor comes in the way of a moderate level of bitterness, along with bready, slight caramel, sweet malts. Well balanced and drinkable, but unexciting.

Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation.

Middle of the road IPA.

Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to the one fine BA, jtrockschalk, for allowing this brew to cross state lines during a recent, most excellent, trade.

This IPA suffers from something of an identity crisis. I grabbed it by the front, tossed it into a glass, & started sniffing around for clues. IPA, it said, distinctly but softly. Looks like an IPA, smells like an IPA, must be an IPA. My deductive reasoning skills are finely honed.

Tastes like...an IPA that's looking to be a bit to finely balanced. Too much malt, I growled. While the hops were there, so, too, was the malt, & an underlying (with an emphasis on the "lying") bit of mustiness that I didn't dig, but marked it a bit suspect. This beer hasn't been hanging with a high-brow crowd, if you know what I mean.

I'll let it off with some decent marks for now. Not as innocent, nor as clean, as I'd been led to believe. I'll keep my eye on him.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: cream colored head recedes slowly, heavy amount of lacing. Color is slightly cloudy amber/orange. Some carbonation streaming.
Aroma: combination of bready malt and earthy hops.
Mouthfeel: medium with a mostly dry finish.
Finish: well balanced between the sweet barley malt and a fairly aggressive citrus and earthy hop presence.
Overall: enjoyable and drinkable IPA. Good representation of an American IPA.
