Pored from a 22oz into a pint glass.

A: Nice frothy head which was retained during drinking. Light copper colour.

S: nice pine scent with citrus (grapefruit).

T: Pine and grassy hops with some citrus and maybe a little mango. Some immediate bitterness, but not a huge bite.

F: light, smooth and crisp. Decent carbonation.

O: A pretty good IPA in the NW tradition. Couldn't find a date on the bottle, but I trust the shop I got it from.

Saw this on the shelf of the local liquor store tonight - they apparently just got this in. I was going to go for something reliable, as it's been a long week, but I figured why not give a new brewery a try.

From a 22 into a quintessential Duvel tulip:

APPEARANCE
Dark golden, SRM 10-15 range. Sandy, white-tan head that falls to about half an inch.

NOSE
They mention 4 different C-hops (has to be 4 out of these 5 - Cascade, Centennial, Columbus, Chinook, Citra) on the label and it shows. Immediately citrusy - lemon and lime zest, a little grapefruit, oranges - but also fragrant and floral. Faintly piney. Slight biscuit-malt scent. Not an overly strong nose like some of the recent IPAs I've had.

TASTE
As expected, citrus: orange, grapefruit, pinch of lime on the finish. Very neutral malt profile. The taste is very standard for an IPA using those 4 C-hops. No perceptible off flavors.

MOUTHFEEL
A little on the thin side, but also somewhat creamy. Medium body. It's very pleasant and matches the aroma and smell very well. I think it may benefit from a little more carbonation, however.

OA
Great stuff from a brewery I've never heard of. I don't think this is a groundbreaking IPA, but it's very good for the style and a beer I wouldn't hesitate to buy again if I were in the mood for something in between an IPA and DIPA.
