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

First had: on tap at Frog Level

Hazy copper pour, with a bubbly white head that retained as a ringlet. Floral and citrus notes in the aroma that were reflected in the taste, pretty light and crisp with a lasting bitterness, and a solid crackery malt base. Body was about medium, perhaps lighter than you'd expect for a 7% brew, but in this case, I'd say it was a good thing. Simple, refreshing, and drinkable.

3.51/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a very lightly hazy medium golden honey in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and hints of copper + apricot highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy off-white head that reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/orange rind and floral hops over the top of pale, grainy, and caramel malts.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of pale, grainy, and caramel malts with just a hint of sweetness. That is followed by light flavors of floral and citrus/orange rind hops which imparts a light to moderate amount of bitterness which fades fairly quickly.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness int he finish.

O: A decent IPA but nothing special, easy to drink and refreshing. I'm not sure that I would grab it again but it certainly was not offensive - there are just a lot of better NC options available at the same price.

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

A - pours a hazy copperwith a great finger of light tan head. OK retention and lacing.

S - orange rinds, grapefruit rinds, kind of seedy resinous. Hint of sweetness

T - Perfectly consistent with the nose. Decently bitter. Finish is sweet citrus rinds and dry bitterness. Aftertaste is consistent with the finish, mostly bitters linger.

M - medium bodied or so, appropriate carbonation. Slightly thick feel left on the tongue

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Mini growler bottle? Pretty handy little thing. Makes you want to chug chug chug.

A: Drank straight from the mini growler...couldn't resist

S: Some mild floral hops and orangey citrus notes

T: Not overly hoppy. Some bittersweet flavors with a fruity finish.

M: Decent carbonation, with a dry finish, good body.

O: Overall, I like it, but I think I like the bottle more than I do the beer. This will be a handy one to keep around and pour from my kegs.
