First had: on tap at Earth Eagle

Poured a cloudy burnt orange color with a ringlet of white bubbles. Aroma was fairly sweet, candied orange peel, caramel malts. Taste was similar, more fruity and sweet than hoppy, flavors of candied zest and sweet malts, with a touch of pithy bitterness. Medium body, pretty slick on the tongue. I thought this one was a bit unimpressive, but it could be that since the Shepherd's Crook blew me away, this one just ended up seeming sub-par in comparison. Still good though.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured into an imperial pint from a growlerette. Color was a bit of reddish amber, with a minimal white head. Head lasted for a while, there just wasn't much of it. Aroma was primarily a slightly sweet floral hops. Flavor was slightly sweet, but with a malty hint in the backend to offset. A bit of hoppy kick occasionally at the end of a sip. A bit mellower than the aroma indicated. Coated nicely, a bit of tickle on the tongue from the carbonation. Went down well. Overall a solid IPA. A bit something to the flavor would have been appreciated, was a tad blander than the aroma would have one believe.

The beer pours a hazy murky marmalade color with a white fluffy head that fades onto the edges of the glass. Lacing is not really noticeable, slipping off the side of the glass almost as quickly as the liquid. As I said, the beers body is pretty murky and opaque with some carbonation bubbles, but nothing of the other side of the glass coming through. On the nose this beer is heaven with the Citra hops pounding the nostrils with sweet juicy fruits. Pineapple, mango, tangerine, slight pine all shine through, and a sweet caramel can also be found in the background showcasing the nice malts. This smell is an A+ IPA smell. The beer tastes beautifully fruity with great pine bitters showing throughout in the beer. It opens with sweet pine, opening into a plethora of fruits which race across the palate quickly and are forgotten. Mango, pineapple, and tangerine all make appearances beside strong pine and a bitter back bite. Slight biscuit and caramel are found as the malt body of this beer, but this beer is really all about the sweet succulent hops. The beer closes with an almost grapefruit flavor, which turns over into the aftertaste which is light with some of the sweet hops and biscuit malt, but is not very strong. Mouthfeel is clean and crisp, lighter bodied with a little bit of a slight, slick astringent tug on the tongue. Overall this is a phenomenal IPA, and definitely an up and comer for the Hop Head world. Great balance of bitters and a wonderful display of the juicy hops, this beer shines with character. This beer is a great drinker that I am going to crave in the summer months, and, honestly, all year long. Try this beer.
