I got this in a trade with bennetj17. He's a great trader.
This orange-coppery amber beer poured with an impressive two finger off white head. The lacings were also quite impressive on this brew. It was decently carbonated as well.
Piney hops with a hint of citrus. Buttery caramel and bread also present to a lesser degree.
Resinous pine overtop of caramel and buttered toast. Finished again with hops, with more of a grapefruit taste and feel. Guess im a hophead because I could have used a touch more hoppiness.
This is a decent bodied and well balanced IPA. The astringent and piney hops nicely balanced the sweet and buttery creaminess of the malts.
This is a very refreshing and drinkable medium bodied IPA. Could tip a few of these back.
This beer had awesome head and lacing, much more so than other great IPAs. It also had very nice malty flavours and contributions, without being overdone in that department. Just a touch more hops would put this over the top as an American IPA in my opinion. Thanks again to Bennetj17 for throwing this one in.

A-a clear amber with visible carbonation and three fingers worth of egg shell head
S-pine and citrus hops, light fruitiness, bready malt
T-very hop forward with pine and citrus bitterness front and center with caramel malt very much in the background. Some light fruits in the middle but most of the taste is full on bitterness.
M-medium body, light carbonation which feels almost flat?( best by date is either 2/2014 or 12/2014), bitter finish
Overall maybe it's just an old bottle but it could do with a bit more carbonation, that said this has huge in your face bitterness, everything else is in the background
