First had: ?
Recent tasting on tap at City Tap House, Philly, PA
Hazy, golden-orange pour with a small cap of white head that retained well and laced the glass. Crisp hop aroma, pine and citrus, with some bready malts coming through. Actually quite malty in the taste up front, but pleasant and not overly sweet, mid-palate quickly brought in a rush of crisp hops, orange rind and pine, for a lasting bitterness that took the edge off the obvious malt base. Medium body, crisp, fresh mouthfeel. Quite a solid IPA overall.
Serving type: on-tap

3.5/5 rDev -9.3%

A: Nearly crystal clear appearance with a golden copper color. Head quickly settled after building a finger tall, white in color. nice lacing as the foam fell.
S: Moderate grapefruit, earthy and pine hop aroma. medium to low bready and toasty notes. No esters.
T: Moderate bitterness with the pine and grapefuit flavors coming through. Solid malt backbone consistint with the aroma, bready, crust and dough flavors. The balance is on the hop side (duh) I'd say 4:3. After-taste is a more dank piney flavor that lingers on the tongue. There is a slight mineral character I pickup as the hops wear on the pallete.
M: Crisp and clean drinkability with medium carbonation levels. The body is medium-low with no alcohol warming, just a slight harshness from the bitterness.
O: A nice drinking IPA with a solid malt character. I think the bottle I had might have had some age on it, so I'd like a fresher example, but.. middle of the road as far as IPAs go.

I had my first one of these in a sturdy glass mug at cellar temperature.
Perfect presentation. A long-lasting puffy two-finger white head leaves a pretty pattern of lacing behind, over a clear golden, sunset orange body.
The aroma, while not overly strong, is fairly heavy on lemon and orange. There's also a bit of a sweet yeasty smell.
A fruity orange juice taste is the initial flavor detected. This transitions very nicely into a drier, more astringent orange or lemon peel taste, and finally turns to biscuity breadiness in the finish. A resinous pine needle bitterness resonates for minutes after a sip. Done by the books, in highly satisfactory fashion.
Mild carbonation lends a seamlessly smooth and quaffable feel to this one.
There's nothing not to like about it. This beer will alleviate a hops craving just as well as any other IPA of high renown.
