A: Poured from the growler into a Sam Smith's nonic. Body is clear honey-amber in color with a small whitish head.
S: Leafy and citrusy hops over caramel malt and toffee malt foundation. Hops are more dominant, but there is a nice malt base.
T: Follows the nose, with a crackery, biscuity foundation - with a touch of caramel malt - and then citrusy hops with a touch of pine needles and earthy spice. Reminds me of Founders' All Day IPA in a lot of ways. Finishes with a lemony bitterness that lingers on the aftertaste.
M: A bit flat, and thus some slickness. Medium in heft.
O: Good stuff at this price point (growler was $8.99) and for what it is supposed to be - i.e., a sessionable IPA.
Serving type: growler

Perfectly balanced IPA. seems to go down like water despite a commendable hop-explosion. THe carbonation is absolutely perfect. It's not over-bearing in any way.. not big.. poundable! Dry, but not TOO dry. Nice stab if I must say so myself. PUlled up the BA score prior to 'leaving the isle', but it was the only one I searched and I said to myself "if it sucks but it's scored 83 then so be it.besides nice design work on the label right?:)?.. but I think that may be a tad under-scored BA.. maybe 84..possibly even 85/100 for me.. solid brew.. Sierra has a contender on the shelf(for now, but who knows how long,.. hard to find good/accessible-as-in-local-grocer IPA's). Had never heard of this, and I've drank my share of beers. I make my own all grain too, and this IPA is light on abv bu still tastes great and has a great bod... talk about having you rcake and eating it too. nice beer. I mean it's no Commodore Perry or anything, and not even as good as a local, fairly accessible but no less expensive draft of Terminal Brewings' Magnum PA(although this isn'tnecessarily overpriced - paid 8.49+tax),.. but it's darn tootin' close to being as good as those super-ipa's. really solid. the label says "just drink it"... love it.. and the beers drinkability speaks to that.
