look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a short white head on a murky dark orange body. Collar and cap sticks around.

Aroma on the sweeter side, somewhat earthy. Hops seem a bit subdued.

Follows the aroma. On the sweet malty side for today's ipas...a change isn't necessarily a bad thing here as Yellow Springs pulls it off. I'd guess this at 6.5%abv

Medium mouthfeel and carbonation.

Good beer overall. I enjoyed the first Yellow Springs IPA although I think it could be improved by overloading it with more hop presence. Thanks MaxSpang for the try!!

On tap at King's Table

Hazy amber with dulled brown highlights. Soapy, bubbly foam.

The aroma is stale citrus hops with a decent shot of pineapple. Toasty malt with a hint of caramel, too. Candied and floral hops. The citrus flavor is dulled even more but there is enough of a hop oil presence to be passable. Not much malt interference. The feel is pretty good overall - medium body with appropriate carbonation and a not bitter finish (though it does have a touch of caramel aftertaste).

All in all, not terrible for an Ohio upstart.

My first sip of this beer was straight from the Growler and I was pleasantly surprised. Nice taste of hops with a little citrusy hint of orange undertone. The head was decent, the body of the beer was very nice when poured to kind of an orangey gold. This was a very good beer on a hot day. 6.9 ABV. I am going back to Yellow Springs Brewery and have the sampler of all their beers based on this.
