From the growler. Pour is a nice amber orange gold. Slight haze. 1/4 finger of white head, lingering.

Nose is rather sweet and creamy. lots of caramel notes, decent malt, Hint of orange citrus.

Taste is again pretty malt forward. Nice nutty, creaminess. Followed rapidly by a blast of bitter hops. Not super complex, but decent flavors. Maybe a little corny grain flavor too. Could use a little better balance overall. Malt is just too prominent.

Feel is medium. Nothing too biting or cloying.

A nice brew from the local brewery. Not the best IPA, in fact I would prefer to call it an american pale ale rather than an IPA at all. But still good. Hope they keep making more new things! (697 characters)

Had on tap at the brewery for a sample. No hoppy beers before this one. Poured amber colored, nice aroma of a beer that was gently hopped. This taste more like a balanced IPA, which kind of disappoints me. The malts were out there, fairly medium bodied, but there weren't enough hops to punch through. It was sweet with a touch of herbal and pine briefly in the middle. After taste of malt. It's a very balanced beer for those who aren't looking for a hops-plosion, but not my cup of tea. Ghost Island kills it for IPAs from them. (530 characters)

Slightly hazy, golden brew topped by a very large flat white head. Impressive retention and nice lacing.

Fruity hop aroma: mostly tropical (mango, pineapple) laced with citrus. Noticeable caramel malt profile. Off-putting buttery note creeping in as it opens up.

Nice balance of malt and hops, fairly bitter, but there is a massive buttery note shining through that really ruins this brew's potential.

Drinkable, bitter, lively; excellent mouthfeel.

I will have to try another bottle, perhaps on a fresher palate, but right now I'm thinking this is a major diacetyl bomb, and it's quite disappointing. (606 characters)

Clear copper with a thick white head that quickly faded into heavy lacing. My forward, I can't detect a distinct hop flavor or aroma but there is a light bitterness that coats the tongue. More of a pale ale- would like a more pronounced hop aroma and taste. (258 characters)
