3.36/5  rDev -14.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

12 oz bottle poured into Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass

A: Poured a light copper color with a fingers worth of white head that settled to a small ring with spotty lacing.

S: I'm getting a strong grapefruit and piney smell right up front with a hint of malt mixed.

T: Malt is present right up front but falls very quickly to a strong grapefruit/pine hoppiness. The bitterness kicks in right there and sticks around to the very end.

M: Mid-bodied.... Pretty smooth for the style. Not bad at all.

O: I'm not a big IPA guy but this one is not to bad. Worth looking for.... Nice people at the Old Parkway Brewing... Go check them out if you get to Salem VA.

3.89/5  rDev -1.3%
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 !!
