3.53/5  rDev -11.1%

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.

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.

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.

Unexpected growler sent by ygtbsm94. Brad, you da man.

The beer is transparent and golden orange with a thick, lasting white head that coats the pint glass with sticky lacing. The aroma offers hops, light pine, bready malts. Though the aroma was fine, the flavor is much better than I would have expected. Normally, I oppose IPAs with too much of a malt body, but this beer offers beautiful balance. Lightly sweetened bread with a touch of oranges. Smooth on the palate with abv hidden well. Nothing earth shattering here, but this is certainly a solid brew. A nice beer to drink while watching the NCAA tourney.

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.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a light, slightly hazed, orange-copper coloring with a light, filmy, sparse, off-white head. Nose of subtle citrus/tangerine on a bready backbone, with subtle resinous and bitter hops highlights. Flavors of tropical fruit forward, with a citrus lean, and a tangy caramel and bready backbone. Subtle pine, grapefruit, tangerine, and mossy notes. Light, crisp, and effervesced in mouth, with a tangy, tart, and bitter aftertaste. Light, crisp finish. Decent brew.

Poured a dark golden orange with two finger head that took forever to go away and left lace patches with a typical earthy, citrusy hop aroma. Taste is the same, mostly hoppy, dry, citric, earthy, some sweet malts add balance but it's just a little off. Whether it is the spices or the hops themselves this beer has a little too much hoppy bitterness and finishes a little offkey and underwhelming. Still, an enjoyable IPA that isn't too hoppy or watery and worth trying.
