3.94/5  rDev -2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

12oz can poured into wine glass.

Appearance-pours a golden orange with a thin off white head which disappears quickly. Nice bits of lacing dancing around the glass. 3.75

Aroma-right off the bat I'm getting a wild flower musk then orange creeps in. Almost a white wine aroma. 3.75

Taste-creamy orange apricot, grapefruit, hints of honey. Very sweet, there is very little bitterness to be found. Nice to see an IPA that doesn't pack the hops in just because the status quo says you have to. Nice even taste. 4

Feel-great feel, lighter side of medium body, ABV sits well, very drinkable, good for a session. 4.5

Overall-support local brews! This is a lighter IPA then you usually see these days. Could also be a good intro into this category for a newbie. Die hard hopheads might not find a lot in this one, but I feel it's overall evenness and thirst quenching ability make it a great summer beer. 3.75

Love that a new exciting brewery is has made its place in the growing Cincinnati craft beer scene. Happy to finally try it.

Pours a surprisingly golden, clear yellow with just a touch of copper. Much lighter and golden than most IPAs, but not off putting. Soapy white head that quickly filled up my snifter. Its reduced but hanging around for a while.

Nice fruity, resiny, dank hops in the nose. Maybe some lemongrass in there too. Sweet caramel whiffs as well.

The flavor is lighter than I expected but very very refreshing. sweet up front, with a mild bittering on the tongue. Grapefruit rind, lemon, just overall subtle citrus flavors with pithy bitterness.

Light, airy, slightly thin, easy drinking, Great IPA for a hot day.

I like this. This is an IPA for people who like Pale Ales and dont like big, malty IPAs. It drinks really really easy and leaves a nice bitterness behind. A must try if you have access to it.

3.88/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Arrives crystal clear amber with a modest cap that fades without leaving much lace

Smell: Floral, with hints of pith and grass

Taste: All about the hops from the start, with floral and tropical flavors in the forefront - orange, apricot and a hint of mango; grassy and pithy elements arrive later, providing a rather bitter finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I would characterize this as a Summer IPA, with a light mouthfeel and a dry finish; nice, though I would prefer some bolder hop flavors

Serving type: on-tap

*12 oz can*

I was on vacation and found this little sixer that was dated 6-25-14. So I bought it! Time to describe this brew. First this comes at you like looking like an easier to find Pliny. Very pretty to look at! Deep golden honey almost on the brink of copper tone. Pleasant whit tight bubbly head. The fumes from this is pretty standard for an IPA. Huge floral hops with underlying citric notes of grapefruit zest and a little bit of pineapple. Grains are there and are dominant while this brew warms. The flavor is as the nose describes. Citric and floral/grass with a kiss of resinous hops. The malts are there resembling toasted grains and biscuits. Semi-dry finish with a bitter snap of hop resins that coat the tongue. The body on this beer Medium-light, par carbonation to help the flavors pop.

Overall: I'm glad I made this purchase. This is an above par hoppy brew. It's slightly off balanced, which is a good thing IMO. That way all the hop oils still stay within the beer. Yet it's also not hop water. This brew is crisp and clean. I have no problem killing a few after cutting the grass, yadayadayada... This brew is Worthy!

White head. With a little bit of lace. Color is an orange hued gold.

Flavor profile: A little bit of tropical flavors. Mangoes and pineapple. A fair amount of floral hops.

Mouthfeel: Bitter and some stickiness. Hop resiny. Medium bodied.

Overall, a solid ipa. Really easy to drink this one as it isn't overly bitter. This one has a nice amount of flavor.

Poured PsycHOPathy IPA into a pint glass.

A - Pours a clear dark golden with a finger of white head.

S - On first sniff getting some grapefruit, pine, slight amount of citrus.

T - Nice, getting hops, with grapefruit. It has some bitterness mid palate. Finally, on the after taste getting more pine and bitterness.

M - Medium all the way, mouthfeel and carbonation.

O - It feels like a everyday IPA. Not too heavy or too thin. Recommended! Cheers!
