Poured from a bottle into a Stone IPA glass. The beer is a hazy, coppery gold color with a nice 3 fingers of persistent white head. Nice dank hoppy aroma. Cut grass, hay, fresh linen, and lemon rind.

Light-medium body with a balanced flavor and a good, firm feel. There are some cereal-like grainy notes up front and herbal, somewhat peaty hop notes at mid-palate. Soft, slightly dry finish with a hint of gooseberry sweetness.

This is an old-school IPA. The focus is on balance. It has a biscuity malt backbone and a pleasant, herbal, tea-like hop character. Recommended.

3.78/5  rDev -11.7%

Best by 5/6/14 batch... normally do not do this for a off batch, but since this happened with Myrcenary and now this and they never return my email or calls here goes.

Smell is biscuit malt with only slight citrus and tropical notes, taste is the same.

I know they are brewing on a new system but they need to get there shit together and stop sending out these mediocre batches....

Original review 4.83

Pours a very pretty orange, slight haze, finger if head, nice lacing

Smell is very tropical and juicy, tangerine, pineapple, grapeftuit, orange, pine sap, earthy hop, really fresh smelling

Taste is juicy, orange, tangerine, mango, pine, spruce, sweet malt base, bitter grapefruit, pineapple

moutheel is medium with medium high carbonation, dry on the finish but not as much as some

this has quickly become my second favorite IPA after Two Hearted, I love the full range of hop flavor, If you are looking for a perfect IPA this one is very hard to beat!

poured 12oz bottle into snifter. Best by 4/27/19.

A - Darker hazy orange with a 2 finger white head. Nice retention and large blotches of lacing.

S - Pine and citrus hops, with some floral wisps. There is a pleasant, beautiful caramel maltiness that gives it an English touch.

T - Starts with some citrus, orange and grapefruit, then builds into a sweeter caramel malt backbone with some more floral hops. Finish is some orange and grapefruit bitterness.

M - Medium body, smooth, with well placed carbonation and oily.

O - As Odell puts it this is an English Style IPA with the big caramel backbone, but it has much more hoppiness. It is well done, enjoyable and easy to drink.

Poured into a Ballast Point Tulip. Just one of the best west coast style IPA's you will ever find. Orange peel, orange blossom in the smell. Faint hop smell but it is very citrusy. Smell is freaking amazing. Taste is about the same although the hop flavor is more noticeable in the taste. Hoppy, citrusy wonderfulness. Hands down one of the best IPA's out there. Cheers!
