4.05/5  rDev +14.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance 3.75: Poured out a frothy , deep golden. Head swelled up to a respectable 1/2" and refused to completely go away. Lots of little CO2 bubbles, but this is a somewhat opaque ale and it looks great.

Smell 3.75: Bouquet is hop-forward, like an IPA should be. I smell the familiar alkaline hit of Columbus, Chinook...maybe a couple of other left-coast "C" hops. Very nice and inviting.

Taste 4.25: Front is somewhat dry, with a pleasant initial alkaline punch. Middle is also a little dry, but features a huge hit of hop yumminess: citrus rind, grapefruit, pine, chlorophyl. Finish is smooth and malty, with a pleasant alkaline underpinning and more discernible citrusy tastes from the hops. Aftertaste is of medium length and all in the back of the mouth, featuring more hop accents. Very nice.

Mouthfeel 4.0: Really on the mark for this type of beer. Silky smooth and just the right amount of bubbles.

Overall 4.0: Excellent IPA. Great malt and hop balance and the alpha hops chosen for this brew are a wonderful blend. Perfect for sessioning, this baby would also stand up well to whatever food you pair it with, its dryness makes it a great companion. ABV is a little big for this type of ale, so watch out. Recommended.

Packaging: 12 oz. can
Glassware: Shaker pint
Purchased: 6-pack from Craft Brewed

Beer is hazy and honey-colored, with a creamy, off-white head. The head offers a fair amount of lacing and excellent retention.

Aromas offer a very inviting mix of floral and citrusy hops. Makes me thirsty smelling it!

The taste is mainly of hops and bitter resins, as you'd expect, with a touch of malt breadiness.

Mouthfeel has a medium amount of body and moderated carbonation. The finish is dry and bitter and thirst-quenching.

Very solid IPA from new brewer Red Hare. Glad I have 6 of these!

Got one can of Gangway IPA as part of my first out of state trade.
Poured in a pint glass.
Nice fluffy head. Light color toward yellow. Not really cloudy but opaque.
Aroma a bit sweet.
Taste was a steady progression beginning with graoefruit, pine, then grassy, ending up with a little caramel.
Well carbonated, flowed delightfully over my tongue.

Overall a very nice IPA. Not as intense as an imperial or even a classic double. Just tasty. I could drink this regularly if it gets distributed in Texas.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

On tap at the brewery.

Weedy, grassy, herbal, grapefruit peel aroma: hop-dominant as expected.

Flavor: Hops present a more balanced taste with a touch more fruit. Mild bitterness turns a bit higher in the aftertaste.

Hazy amber body with a durable off-white head.

Serving type: on-tap

3.71/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

From the 12 fl. oz. can marked Canned 11/08/13. A gift from a friend that I sampled on February 3, 2014.

Golden yellow pour building up to a foamy, pilsener-like, soapy white head. Some lacing.

Pleasant earthy, pine, and and green apple notes on the nose. Malts come up behind in a mellower fashion. Relaxing nose.

The body is a little acidic but generally on the medium side.

The taste has a notable hop character that clings to the back of my throat and lingers bitterly for a few seconds after each swallow. Tastes clean as well as biting.
