look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours amber with a thumb of cream colored head. Alright lacing & average head retention, some hazing as well

S: Breadyness, pine, both fade over time

T: Follows the nose, pineapple, and pear notes as well up front. Grapefruit and pine with a little bit of caramel, pears & biscuitty malt as this warms, along with grassyness, woody hops & dryness. Finishes piney with grapefruit, woody hops, pears & caramelwoody dryness

MF: Medium bodied, restrained carbonation, nice balance

A decent AIPA, not the best "best in the land" as they claim, easy to drink

Kate brought some beers back from a MS/AR field trip. I think this may be my first ever Arkansas brewed beer.

Amber with a thin, bubbly head that retains fair enough for an AIPA. Smells like pineapple, Ricola and weak lemon iced tea. Tastes features a hop profile of lemon and tobacco. Website says IPA was dry hopped with Citra. Not sure where that went wrong.

The best part of this beer is the large amount of resin that makes it onto my tongue. Has a very wet (vs a dry beer thank you very much, I know liquids tend to be wet) mouthfeel but the high volume of lip smacking resin pulls this beer together for me.

I love Citra! so this blend of malty body and massive citra on the nose is a nearly perfect IPA for me! The ABV is high and this could easily be called an Imperial.
Nice to see some one pushing a solid IPA rather than stretching it out to be an imperial.
