On tap at The Tap in Bloomington
Pours somewhat murky orange with a few reddish hues. Nice 2 finger off-white head with decent lacing and retention.
Classic American hop presence in the aroma. Some citrusy fruit with pine and a little floral essence.
Very well balanced flavor. Crisp citrus up front, but there is a strong bready malt backbone that is not as evident in the nose. Finishes with a bit of grapefruit and pine, but not overly bitter. My girlfriend who hates most IPA's even enjoyed the balance on this one.
Creamy mouthfeel. Medium bodied with good carbonation.
Solid beer from a new brewer who appears to be doing things right so far. It was advertised as a West Coast IPA which I wouldn't necessarily agree with since it had more malt than is typical of that sub-genre. What it is though is a extremely well balanced smooth IPA and a superb beer for a brand new brewery.

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.
A - Poured a nice clear golden hue with a nice one finger white head that faded to leave light lacing and a thin blanket.
S - Aromas of malty sweetness, citrus, pine. For being a west coast ipa this is rather subtle and not nearly as in-your-face as I expected.
T - Taste is bready malts, nice pine resin and citrus but not too too bitter. Finish has the bitter hints but for the most part this is pine and malts.
M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, nice lingering bitterness.
O - Overall, a solid IPA. Would like the nose to be more assertive though!
