From a bottle into a stange
a: earthy sienna with a 1 inch foamy cap
s: citrus, leafy and earthy notes,
t: caramel and toasty malts provide some solid balance (for an IPA) with the earthy hops, with some additional hints of grapefruit peel and mild spiciness.
m: a little on the thin and watery side, moderate carbonation, fairly smooth and mildly bitter...finished fairly moderately dry.

overall: nice and a little unique. Nothing to go out of the way to find, but I'd be happy to drink again.

Pours orange and very amber with a fat tan head of foam. Good clarity and those bubbles are loathe to fall. They spot the glass as you drink. Nose is a nice bit of malty brown sugar and tangy citrus. Grapefruit. A slight bit of dankness but not overpowering. Sweet grass. Taste is delicate. It has a good crisp bit of malt and all that lovely citrus. Little bit of light fresh orange and some earthy grapefruit. Drinks light and very easily with only a measure of bitter and a taste of twiggy pine to take this one to the finish.

12 oz. Brown Bottle into Tulip Glass

A: Pours dark amber with one finger of off white foam. retention is good and lacing is nice and sticky. Looks very promising.

S: Sweet. Citrus. Malt. Grains. Orange and grapefruit. Pungent and dank.

T/M: Smooth. Medium bodied. Hops are crisp but not bitter enough. Grains balance the beer and are toasted. Malts are sweet, but kind of come on too strong. Hops are floral with some grapefruit. Aftertaste is bitter.

O: Well balanced. Hops are flavorful, but could be a little more strong. Has an interesting taste. Nothing really stands out for me, yet it's still a solid beer.

Cheers!!
