Word has traveled quick about this new brewery, primarily due to their IPA offering. Bursting with hops, this west coast style IPA has quickly become a favorite. The hops are strong, this one actually goes down smoother and with plenty of flavor the colder it is, unlike other ales that need to be warmed up a bit (45-50) to get all the flavor out of it. It gets a little more bitter than flavorful as it warms up. Hop heads will dig this one.

One note on the brewery: their pale ale is like a simpler, and more bitter version of the IPA, and the Belgian White, while nice, is just simple. I hope these guys have more tricks up their sleeve because the only real keeper of their initial offering is the GreenHead.

12 oz can poured into a SAPP glass. Being from the area, I love the name.

A -- Hazy. Orange/copper kind of color, which changes greatly depending on the light. Cream colored foam. nice lacing.

N -- Resiny big time. Pine and grapefruit. Not too harsh. Let's you know you're probably in for a hoppy taste.

T -- Not as hoppy as I would have predicted. No date on the can, so who knows how old it is, but I got it straight from the brewery just two days ago. Flavors are duller than the nose would have you believe at this point. The hops, pine, and grapefruit are all there, but in lesser quantities than I would have thought. It's also got a good toasted malt character.

M -- Drinkable. Not too bubbly. Not flat.

O -- Really enjoyed this one. Cheers!
