Much thanks to my friends Richard and Alanna for grabbing me this brew.

A: Pale yellow straw in color, with good clarity and a nice amount of white rocky head on top.

S: Pine and grapefruit peel with small notes of orange peel as well. There may even be a hint of lemon balm in there. Nice super clean hoppy smell, not a lot as far as caramel sweetness. Smells nice.

T: Clean bitterness with grapefruit being the predominant flavor. Some pine and light citrus. Not a lot as far as a malt profile goes.

M: Fairly light body, in fact a little too light. There is a nice dryness to it, but leaves the mouth wanting a bit of gravity. There is a slight oily feel from the hops and certainly an assertive bitterness.

O: The alcohol is in there somewhere, but it isn't too obvious. For me the flavor is a little one note, it's hoppy, and that's about it. It's bordering on a little watery for me, and the lack of malt flavor makes it seem like a one trick pony.

One of the better midwest IPAs that I have had that is not brewed in Minnesota. Wish I could have paired it with a bowl of Skyline chili.

12oz can poured into a can glass, canned 12/29/15

A- pours a clear deep golden color with a two-finger creamy and foamy white head that has good retention, sticking around long after the pour

S- up front has a bit of a vegetal & herbaceous aroma; leafy greens & cooking herbs. Beyond that, aromas of grass, floral hop, citrus & subtle toasted malt

T- juicy, slightly tangy citrus fruit up front with an emphasis on grapefruit peel, followed by vegetal notes that follow the nose, piney, floral and grassy hops kick in near the finish, with dry linger of more grass and toasted malt

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthful and a dry crisp finish

O- easy drinking ipa with a nice mix of hop flavors

This is a really solid ipa. Delicious floral and tropical hop flavors sustained and held nicely together by the malt backbone. Decent aroma upon opening of can as well.

12 oz. can, dated July 2015, into a snifter.

A: Clear but limited clarity in the gold-amber body. Moderate size but short lived head leaves spotty lacing on the glass.

Aroma - very fruity, with plenty of citrus, mainly orange. Suggests more tartness than sweetness. Good complexity.

Feel: Medium body and near medium carbonation. Crisp and dry.

Flavor: Some sweet malt; enough to leave this IPA with relatively low bitterness for style. The hoppy characteristics still dominate, with tropical fruit, herbal and evergreen notes.

Overall: Low bitterness but plenty of hops for an IPA.
