12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Looks good.

Smells good.

Hello? Maybe I'm missing something, here. This is an IPA?

No balance at all - Malt, malt, malt and LOTS of alcohol.

Couldn't get past the overbearing, boozy kick.

My 2nd drain-pour of 2014. (262 characters)

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. (889 characters)

I hadn’t heard of this brewery before, but it comes from my state and it looked like a legitimate IPA, so I grabbed a fresh batch that was already chilled, brought it home, and poured into a nice tall glass to let those beautiful hops do their thing. I has 7.2% ABV and 67 IBUs so let’s see what it is like.

Look-It pours a frothy and medium thickness head with large bubbles along the perimeter. The beer has a refreshingly cloudy look (so many IPAs I’ve recently reviewed were as clear as glass) and an off yellow-amber color with golden fringes.

Smell-The smell is largely based off of mango, pineapple, and clover hops with a honey-based malts backbone that is complementary.

Taste-I get citrus and pine, namely grapefruit rind, tangerine, and TONS of orange peel at the tip of the palate. The pine shines through like sucking on a Christmas tree and the resins bleed onto your advanced palate. The malts take backstage, but not too far back and are honey and cracker based deliciousness.

Mouthfeel-I get a medium-bodied feel with a sticky note (not the paper ones in school though, lol) and a mild carbonation content. The tongue is left with a strong resinous coating that is pleasant and pine-dominated…remember the Christmas tree sticking out of your mouth.

Overall-I was pleasantly surprised by this otherwise unknown brewery. They really brought something new to the table, or should I say, palate. It has a nice balance between each relevant component and I’d definitely say that I will try this variety again. Cheers! (1,545 characters)

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. (379 characters)
