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.

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

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A: dirty-yellow tending towards amber, slightly hazy
S: grainy, malty, a little orange-blossom and honey

T: malty front, with sweetness and fruitiness: the net seems to me a bit like peach. There is some citrus in there as well, but it's not prominent. The bitterness in the beer never takes hold to overcome fruity malt beginning.
M: there is a slight pull on the tongue, and decent carbonation. As the bitterness tries to take hold, the fruit-malt notes linger; eventually the bitterness wins out, lingering but not in an overpowering sense.

O: a decent malt-forward IPA, but one that is a little lacking a nice, bitter pull that takes over the back end. I believe it's a solid, nicely done, if unexceptional, offering by a smaller brewery. The offering definitely encourages me to try more from them.

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.

Sipping on this little monster as I type . . .

Let me say that I am an IPA guy. I've drank almost everything (categorically speaking), and yet my true love is the citrus, floral hoppiness and high ABV that IPAs deliver.

As for this one, my first instinct was to smile at its unfiltered nature. No irish moss, no messing around here. Just beer from it's secondary into a bottle. Simple, honest and straightforward, it presents itself with high floral notes, citrus sweetness and a piny nose that all but disappears at the tongue lashing it disperses at the finish.

Thick in the mouth, slight laces on the glass, a bit of over maltiness that is not distracting (like the Dogfish Head 120), but complementing. This is a well balanced beer. This has been crafted with quality.
