3.16/5  rDev -20.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A: Dark Orange brown in color, fairly hazy. There is a good amount of white head on top. Perhaps a touch dark.

S: Citrus and lemon peel, followed by caramel, and a syrupy malt smell. Light orange peel, and lemon, with some bread aromas.

T: Bread, with syrupy malty sweetness. Slight resin character, with lemon grass following. Bitterness is light, but lingers well, with earthy notes. Something a little cloying in there. Or perhaps boozy?

M: Medium light in body, carbonation is mid range, although a bit more would be alright. Somewhat dry finish.

O: Not a bad brew, but certainly not assertive. Good hop flavor balances with the malty, but it's missing the wow factor. Easy drinking for and everyday type beer, but I don't see it being a 'go to brew' for me.

3.89/5  rDev -2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: The beer is hazy amber orange in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high off white head that quickly died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has bright flavors of citrusy hops—oranges and lemons stand out in particular—along with a moderate amount of bitterness. Faint hints of bready malts are perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and rather crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA is rather unique for the style in that it uses subtle flavors of bready malts as the underlying base, which both accentuates the hop flavors and bitterness and keeps the beer very easy to drink. The combination of lemon and orange flavors is also interesting.

Pours into a nonic a clear brass color with a thinner white head atop.Aromas of citrus and light herb/grass,some sweet caramel malts also come into play.Somewhat sweet on the palate with some caramel and sugary notes,a healthy dose of citrusy hops come in late providing zest and some mild dryness.An IPA on the sweeter side but it does have some good hops in the finish,not bad.

An interesting IPA. The head is good and quickly leaves leaving a nice residue. The aroma is nice and has a touch of orange??. The taste is exceptional even though the citrus is predominate. The hops and malt take second fiddle to the citrus, but somehow, ait all balances quite well. Good job on this one. Will definitely drink again !!
