PoW! Wow! I have had this many times now and it was my 1st try at this style of beer. I must say it is not for the faint of taste! Smells of piney hops and taste to match it. Bitter oh yes! Looks good and feels good in your mouth. (make sure to decant this one though!) Amazing frothy head with fairly nice sticky lacing for this style. Smooth and drinkable for its style, not over carbonated. Lacking a bit on depth of taste but I believe it fits its style nicely. 2 or 3 will go down great on a hot day but the high alcohol content will knock you down fairly quickly! Not sessionable for me but a good start to a tasty evening of drinks. Yum.

Appearance: Golden, hazy light brown, copper color with a decent sized head--around 1 inch
Smell: Citrus, earthy, pine, slight hops, even light hints of fruit
Taste: Dry, slight hop's, bitter, lost some of the citrus/fruit smells
Mouthfeel: Dry, crisp, light to medium body carbonation, very easy going for 7% ABV
Overall: a great option for a America IPA, bitter but not overwhelming, with complex undertones

A - Pours out a nice two finger white frothy head followed by a light hazy golden orange beer.
S - A pleasant malt sweetness and a clean hop profile of citrus, and floral aroma are produced.
T - A sweet clean biscuity malt flavor along with pop of citrus floral hops. No detection of alcohol.
M - Medium bodied and well carbonated goes down really easy.
O - This beer is very satisfying and really clean and easy to drink. If you like big IPA's, this would be a good one to try on days you just feel like kicking back and having a easy drinking brew. A really easy drinker, cheers!

4.19/5 rDev -1.9%

On tap in a pitcher poured into a regular glass of non-specified type. Cheap college bar, so pretty general glassware.
A: Deep copper in hue with a slightly hazy 1.5 finger head. The head disappeared rather quickly. I drank this at a college bar so the glass wasn't as clean as it could have been, so the lacing wasn't the greatest, though it lingered for a tiny bit. I've had better pours, but I can't complain. Even though I was a little disappointed with the lacing, this brew is everything you expect out of an IPA in appearance.
S: Floral notes hit you right away. Present, but not overpowering. Definitely pleasant.
M: This beer leaves a very clean mouthfeel as nothing really lingers much at first. You can feel the carbonation on your tongue leaving a crisp feel, but the further into the beer the more it coats the back of your tongue.
T: This beer is immediately bitter. You can taste some citrus notes, though I can't place my finger on what type of citrus it is. I'd venture to say grapefruit, but I'm not certain. For the most part it has a nice bitter hop profile with a very subtle, subdued malty underbelly that chimes in every now and then just to let you know it's present.
Overall: This is my favorite go-to brew at the moment. Lately when trying IPAs I've been comparing them to this one just because I find it to be a very true, honest representation of what I think an IPA should be. Could easily be sessionable, but it is rich enough to leave you feeling satisfied after just one. Great to share with your friends. I could see this beer being a nice segue beer for a friend exploring the craft brew scene. It may be a bit hoppy for them, but if you want to introduce someone to what an IPA should be, I view this one as a solid standard in any hop heads repertoire.
