Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a golden –orange color with a two finger off white-orange tinted head. The head has very nice retention, but eventually fades leaving light lacing.
Smell – A sweet fruity and malty aroma of bread and citrus hop are the base of the smell. The citrus is of both tangerine sweet as well as some grapefruit notes. Behind these aromas is a lighter pine aroma and a little bit of caramel. Overall quite a nice smell.
Taste – The taste follows the nose well. A malty sweetness with caramel and bready flavors start out the taste. These are soon meet with a citrus tangerine flavor. Toward the middle of the taste it bitters more as tastes of pine work their way to the forefront. This pine, in the end, mixed with a light grapefruit and earthy hop to finish off the taste, leaving a rather odd bitterness on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body is just above normal with a just below average level of carbonation. It is fitting for the style, although a little more body and a little higher carbonation may suit respectively the sweet malt and bitter citrus a little better.
Overall – Not a bad IPA, but not the greatest either. It had a very nice aroma and the taste starts out good, but at the end the hop flavors don’t seem to go tougher too well.

The appearance of this IPA is actually quite stunning in a highly carbonated, cheap sort of way. The head was a tower of ivory foam with a dense cap. The body was a glowing, brassy color of copper but it was obscured by a torrent of tiny bubbles that clung to the glass.
The nose presents a strong malt base with caramel, tea leaves and barley. The hop scent is old world floral with hints of lemon, pine and grapefruit.
The flavor matches the scent nearly identically. Strong malt base, maybe tea leaf, with a floral, pine, tinges of lemon and a pithy grapefruit.
The feel is dry but it has almost no carbonated bite, despite the appearance.
Very simple IPA with stronger Pale Ale qualities than hop profile.
