Tried my first bottle this Spring and put one away to taste in a few months.

Great first impression of this brewery. I anticipated another kinda standard high hop IPA, which is what I wanted, but was pleasantly suprised by this one.

A - orangish golden color with plenty of head

S - citrus, hop

T - citrus, pine

M - crisp with smooth finish

D - very nice, I wish I picked up another bomber or two.

Pours a clouded orange gold with almost no white head. Even without the head, I still rate it what I do because of the color. Nose is strong with grass and perfumed tones. Did I say it was strong with grass? Just want to make sure. Flavor is nice, but a bit too vibrant, shall we say. It sings a bit too high in my mouth at first. Of course over time I either get used to it or it calms down. I am sure it's that I get used to it. Thick floral hoppy flavor profile. It is nice, but kind of one-sided. Not massively complex, but who cares. It's nice. Feel has a decent bubble to it and the liquid is fairly well bodied. Nice to drink. Could easy go on this all night.
