Reviewed on 6/24/2010. On tap at Eccentric Cafe. Pours a clear orange brown with a small white head. Aroma of piney hops, citrus, and caramel malt. Flavor of caramel (tons of crystal malt), bitter hops, and piney and grassy hops. Just ok -- I wasn't particularly a fan of the hop character and the malt base was pretty weak as well. Overall, a disappointing IPA.

Serving type: on-tap

Obtained this bottle dated 10/18/13 (drank Jan. 2014) at the brewery gift shop. The body was a clear, copper color with a fine, off-white head.

The smell was leafy and soapy. Amarillo hops??

The taste was piney with only hints of sweetness. Gentle bitterness. A solid, simple IPA. Very drinkable.

The mouthfeel was medium in body with fine carbonation.
