4.05/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Acquired via trade, there was no apparent date on the bottle. I am not that much of a snob that the lack of a date would keep me from enjoying the beer.

Appearance: Poured from the bottle, the beer was a light copper color with a bright white head.

Smell - The aroma was a pleasant combo of citrus and pine. The aroma did not give a great impression of bitterness.

Taste - The initial taste impression was a soft grapefruit note with hints of peach skin and slight grassiness. The malt backbone is just strong enough to make the hops come to the front. The bitter citrus lingers on the roof of the mouth.

Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel seems somewhat thick for an IPA. It almost feels like a DIPA. The taste lingers nicely in the mouth, which is a good thing.

Overall - This is a solid IPA from a smaller brewery.

Hazy amber, modest head. Tangerine, grapefruit, and pine in the aroma. Big hop flavor and bitterness with caramel malt to back it up. I hesitate to say it reminds me of SN Celebration. Good balance and body. Finish is a little astringent, but overall, my first go with this brewery exceeded my expectations. At 2 and some change/single, worth checking out.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Cloudy opaque body, and a unique color combination inside the glass. Bright orange in the middle, deep lemon yellow and shiny towards the bottom, with some slow rising carbonation. Head is capped with thin foamy bubbles, but a large four finger tall size and styrofoam like retention. This looks like a creamsicle in a glass.

Real interesting nose. Mushy fruit, hinting at hop mango like tropics and a vanilla sweetness. Is that creamsicle thing going on? or more psychological persuasion? Hints of cream too very interesting and nice. Some nice light biscuit notes as well.

Palate comes very mellow but nicely. Minimal bitterness with a soft malt feel, nearly pillow feeling. Hints of hop orange and citrus, loosely leaving it's tropical sense a bit hinted on the nose. Good malt depth, and actually a good balance between light and thick. Creamy palate feel to match with a light sugared sweetness to go.

Overall some nice character but nothing really stands out tremendously. Decent brew.
