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.

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.

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.

Very strong pine resin flavor to this one. Sticky and thick. A little too tangy at first, it seems. Unfortunately that stays prevalent throughout the ride. Sticky, yet smooth feel. A decent IPA. Seems a bit tweaked in the wrong direction to me and could use some ironing of the wrinkles. Some filtering might help too.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a hazy golden orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice balance of citrus and herbal hop qualities.

3.68/5  rDev -8%
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.
