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

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #61 (Feb 2012):

LOOK: Hazy, pale amber

SMELL: Hop resin, spice, leafy, pipe tobacco, piney, light caramel, yeast, biscuity

TASTE: Smooth, hop forward, grainy, leafy, vegetal, spicy, oily, bitter, toasted biscuits, yeast, pineapple, passion fruit, hoppy finish

What was expected has been given. This IPA is all about old-school balance, without forgetting its hoppy roots. Fondness grows after each sip, followed by mourning as our glasses empty. A damn solid IPA, one that we wish we had more of.

3.04/5  rDev -17.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Slightly chill hazed orange colored ale with a tall white head. This is at the lower end of the IPA Orange spectrum.

Smells mild for an IPA. Mild malt and a little grapefruit aroma. Faint scent of pinewood, just not that aromatic.

Starts out tasting of toasted grain and strong tea. Little bit of citrus flavor but overall this is pretty much closer to a pale ale than an IPA.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall this is damn easy to drink but it will leave hopheads with the feeling they have been cheated. Buy this expecting to taste Pale Ale and it is OK.

Beer is a very pale olden color, slight haze, almost no head. Carbonation is okay.

Aroma is citrusy and slightly fruity. Very pleasant aroma, the hops are subtle, not right in your face. No malt aroma.

Tastes is bitter, hops linger on the tongue. Citrus and grapefruit, bitter hop bit at the end. Crisp, not too sweet but not dry either.

Medium Mouthfeel.

A well made beer. Nothing outstanding but it is still crisp and refreshing and the citrus comes through well.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint.

A: Deep amber hue. Pours a 1 finger, bubbly white head. Settles fairly slowly leaving residue and a smattering of carbonation on the surface. Thick, persistent, dry lacing.

S: Pine cones, pine resin, and grapefruit.

T: Pine, nuts, and grapefruit... tastes like it smells.

M: Syrupy texture. Hop forward, little sweetness for balance, bitter dry finish.

D: Sipping experience... the character will dictate.

Atmosphere is really nice. Nice head, dark hue, and some thick persistent lacing. Nose is piney and citrusy. Pine, with a malty nut character, and lots of grapefruit pith. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

A: Aggressive side pour into a tulip. Cloudy amber in color. 1 finger of head. Quickly receding, Bubbles from foam to 1/8th inch. Small amount of sticky lacing.
S: Citrusy, grapefruit, hops, pine, pale malt
T: Very nice. Follows the same notes as smell plus some lemon. Very nice hop profile.
M: Crisp and refreshing. Slight bit of alcohol.
O: A very good beer. Very drinkable. Nice hop profile but not too strong. A good way to introduce someone to an IPA and a nice price point. Well balanced.
