Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – Served an amber colored brew with a one finger of foamy white head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a fantastic level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a sweeter tropical fruit smell of pineapple, papaya, and tangerine. Along with these smells is a bit of caramel sweetness as well as some aromas of a more biscuity nature. Aromas of a more melon like nature are there as well giving it a sweet, fruity smell overall.

Taste – The taste begins with a moderately strong biscuit malt taste with some sweetness of a caramel nature mixed within. As the flavor advances a good deal of fruity sweetness comes to the tongue with a moderately good deal of orange, tangerine, and pineapple all coming to the tongue. Some hop tastes start developing midway through the taste with them being mainly of a grassy nature at first, but adding a good deal of grapefruit hoppiness as the flavor moves on. Some watermelon rind like flavors come to the tongue more as the flavor advances to the end, as well as increase in the overall hop flavor. With the increase in hop and all the sweet fruity tastes and nice biscuit malt base, one is left with a clean hopped fruity flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is just a tad over average in its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is average. Both are great for the blend of sweet, biscuit, and hop flavors that the brew possesses, highlighting all but yet not allowing one to dominate the flavor profile.

Overall –A rather tasty and enjoyable IPA overall. Quite delicious and one nice drink to try if you get a chance.

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

Poured into a sam adams custom glass: color is copper, slightly opaque, head is off white, solid presentation, good lacing.

Smell is big, floral, fruity hops: grapefruit, lemon, mangos, touch of malt sweetness.

Taste is big on hop bitterness, fruity, floral hop flavors continue from the scent, grapefruit rind and mangos are prominent; malts are neutral, not any caramel, some grape type flavor noted (munich malts?). Something drying and to onesided about the taste, earthy hops and metallic flavors noted as it comes through as it warms.

Mouthfeel is also a bit onesided, hop bitterness is not overstrong, but flavors are subdued. Strong on the tongue and drying.

Overall, a decent ipa, its not too sweet, but the off flavors take away from big hop profile.

I like this beer. It was a great example of the IPA style.
Came to me, via a bartender at the Blue Dog, an orange amber color and made for a striking contrast with a tall dense white head. Like an orange creamcicle.
Aroma was fantastic. Bold and citrusy hops.
Taste was equally good and mirrored the nose. Fresh, wet hops with a citrus taste. The malts were in great balance and sweet.
Carbonation tickled the palate. It drinks sweet but also tends to dry out at the finish. Pleasently bitter with some sticky hops.
Really, an awesome beer. Go get some!

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours a murky orange color with a ton of head and lots of lacing.
S - Big time orange scent, some other citrus as well, a little sweet bread kind of malt, some earthy undertones.
T - Good hope bite and citrus flavor in this one, both are well balanced, a good touch of sweet malt, crisp tart apple.
M - Lots of carbonation, but a little sticky, good lingering taste.
O - Was pleasantly surprised by this brew, I'm going to try more of theirs because of this beer.
