Growler poured into snifter.
Pours copper with a thin off-white head that disappears quickly. The nose has some nice tropical notes, mango and pineapple being the most prevalent. Some grapefruit in there as well. Not much malt in the aroma, but there is a slight breadyness. The taste is bit lighter then I expected. Most of the tropical notes are gone, some grapefruit and orange come through but there's A lot pine. Middle of the mouth is where the malt starts showing up, the breadyness fits in well. The finish is dry and bitter, oddly bitter for how clean the front end is.
This is a solid IPA, but not at the top of the heap of IPAs available in the area. The aroma seems to suggest something that just isn't there in the taste. If they can this in the near future I will give it another go.

32oz Boston round growler from the brewery.
Pale brassy hue, great clarity with a good enough froth to keep things going. Big citrus, sweet piney nose with hints of dried grass, tobacco, melon rind and pineapple. Mild smoothness, a tad creamy, chewy medium body. Aggressive resin hop character, citric and piney with an ample bitterness. Mild biscuity malt backbone, spicy, hint of yeast, clean, and bread crust in the finish.
A solid American IPA, without a doubt on the bold side. Very clean and drinkable. A real treat here.

4.3/5 rDev +3.9%
Poured from a 32 oz growler into a standard pint glass. Growler was filled on 5/31/14, and filled very well. Reviewed 24 hours after fill. Appears a clear golden color, with touches of orange throughout. Has an off-white head, that leaves minimal lacing.
Nose is full of tropical fruits, with mango and pineapple sticking out, as well as a good citrus presence, with grapefruit and orange notes. There's a touch of caramel sweetness in the aroma as well. The taste follows this, with the topical fruits and citrus coming through up front, followed by a touch of the malt sweetness, which is then quickly overtaken by the citrus in the finish, with a lasting bitterness, that goes down nicely.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with average carbonation levels. Finish is right where it should be, not too dry, and makes it easy to drink. Overall, this is another great IPA coming out of Ohio. The tropical fruits and citrus are the stars here, and it is very enjoyable.
