Really my go-to beer, whether its cheap or not.

Beautiful one inch head that retains. Light golden body.

Smells of a sweet balance between a nice citric hop and honey malt. God I love Bell's malt bill. Cascade hops are everywhere.

Balance is really the key here. Those citric hops are there, but theyre kept in check by a slick, honey malt bill. The difference is that the citric hops are just another flavor in the plethora of flavors.

Sits very light with a medium body.

Fantastic. As usual.

L: Somewhat cloudy brass body, two-finger bone-white head. good retention.

S: Beauuuutiful. Perfumey floral and citrus hop notes. You can smell it at arm's length. Just gorgeous.

T: Perfect level of sweetness with just enough bitterness to balance it. The finish is plenty dry, but with just enough flavor remaining to invite you back in.

M: Amazingly smooth. The carbonation is present and effective, but unobtrusive.

O: This has got to be one of the best American IPAs out there today. A helluva quencher with lots of flavor. Try it with spicy foods.

Pours a pale orange with a slight pearl white head. Good lacing and the head sticks around as well. Sweet caramel and grapefruit aroma, a bit of pine on the back end as well. Awesomely balanced and big flavor profile. This one would be a hop bomb if not for the perfect amount of sweet malt and vice versa. Silky smooth grapefruit starts off the hop profile and leads into the tasty caramel and sweet bread malt. Perfect amount of sweetness for an IPA, sweet without being too noticeably sweet. Strong pine flavors give a quick, crisp hop finish to the beer. Very simple flavors, but they go great together and the mouthfeel is perfect as well.
