Acquired this from gramatton so a big THANK YOU goes out to him!!

A: This beer pours a murky orange color with a one finger of white head that recedes rapidly. Some sticky lacing was left on the glass.

S: Nose is hefty on piney hops, some grassy notes and big floral hops also present.

T: Taste starts with a nice dose of pine hops, a malt backbone is present and balances and evens out the beer, some grassy notes with a big floral hop bite in the finish.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation, a bit sticky feel in the middle with a dry finish.

D: This is a nice well blended IPA, hops are a bit more subdued but it makes for a very sessionable IPA.

Thanks go out to Ballewblake for this one. Grazi! Grazi!

Pours a clouded brownish amber with a crème head that leaves a decent amount of lacing on the way down. Nose is earthen and leafy with a sharper tang to it. Flavor is fairly deep. A nice robust and earthy/leafy edge. Tangy, but not annoyingly so. It's a milder kind of thing. Overall the whole flavor profile is definitely leaning towards the more earthen side. Feel has a bit of a bite on carbonation and the liquid is about what you would expect. This is a nice IPA. Very easy to drink and carrying a good body of flavor. I'd love to try this on-tap and I bet it would be interesting on cask as well.
