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.

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.

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.

This beer should be rated higher on here...I dont get it. This is an amazing American IPA that is hoppy with a dry, citric taste. The beer pours a generous head, this beer can be put down! Its comparable to some of the best brews for the style. The only draw back is the beer is very murky, but in the end who cares about the appearance.

Bottom Line: Very, Very good AIPA
