I don't often write reviews, but these guys deserve more than just a simple 1-5 rating.

Stopped by the brewery today. First time going on a Saturday, and the line was nonexistent.

Poured from a 750ml growler into a Tree House tulip-ish glass.

A: 1/2 inch perfectly white head. Transparent copper/orange color. Low head retention, but lots of lacing.

S: Sweet, candied sugars from the malts come in right behind an earthy (only slightly floral), pungent hop character. Overall, I guess you could describe the nose as very balanced.

T: Definitely a cloying aspect to the hops that knocks the balance toward the hop side of things. Still plenty of that candied sugar taste, but the taste is much more hoppy than the nose. Pine mixed with a bit of mango and peach. Plenty of bitterness in the finish as well.

M: Medium to low carb, just where it should be for an IPA. Pretty big body as well, which is how I feel like an earthy IPA should be. Smooth.

O: This is not your girlfriend's fruity, citra IPA. This is a beer with earthy, piney characteristics that get all up in your grill. It's a hop bomb, but a fairly balanced bomb. After all, a man can't drink Julius every night...OR CAN HE?

Sidenote: Maybe if John Mortarelli would have himself a couple pints of this sappy goodness maybe he wouldn't be such a Turd Ferguson

Wow.

They had Julius on tap when I went, so considering that is one of my favorite beers on the planet I was planning just to get a few bottles of Julius and be on my way.

Curiosity got the better of me though and I decided to grab a bottle of Sap as well.

VERY glad I did. As soon as I smelled this beer I was blown away. Absolutely fantastic nose on it, tropical/sweet/floral.... smells great.

Taste is on point as well. Maybe not quite the level of Julius but it's damn close. It has the tropical peach/mango flavor I love, but the finish is a little more pine/bitter.

Delicious. World class IPA.
