3.84/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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!

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives with a cloudy amber appearance and a frothy white head; excellent lacing

Smell: Caramel; somewhat pithy and slightly earthy and vinous

Taste: A touch of the caramel appears on the tip of the tongue but the hops quickly take over with a bitter blast; very pithy, earthy and slightly vinous; residual sweetness on the finish brings balance

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: A nice IPA with an interesting hop bill; well done
