Served chilled into a tulip.

Pours a hazy light orange color with an inch of airy beige colored head that slowly recedes.

Aromas of grapefruit and pine with a mineral background. As it warmed I also picked up guava.

Flavors of pine and candied citrus peel. Similiar to Endeavor, but more subdued.

Mouthfeel is medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall a good IPA for a good cause. Only downside is nothing in the profile really stuck out for me.

Poured a hazy orange with a finger of off-white head. Big aroma of grapefruit, caramel, and tangerine.

Moderate carbonation and a lightish mouthfeel. Biscuit, gentle orange, and light caramel up front with a good dose of pine on the finish.

Drinks much lighter than the aroma indicates, with less citrus than expected. More dry and pine-dominated. Pleasant but not amazing.

1 pInt, 6oz bottle served in Tulip Glass:
This beer pours a slightly cloudy pure gold with hints of copper to the color. The head is quick to rise and slow to settle with a final head of a shaving cream like appearance. The lacing is invisible because the head remains so thick is slopes down from the sides of my tulip glass.

The nose is sweet malts with pine and sharp hops, hints of fruit, vanilla and black pepper. The nose seems weak for as flavorful as this is but my allergies are kicking my ass so the nose is probably a lot better than I can smell right now. The notes I can smell are coming though extremely strong though. So I am erroring on the side of good to exceptional considering how compromised my sinuses are right now.

The taste is a very interesting combination of fruity meets dry with very strong hops as one would expect from an American IPA. What is great is that he hopping is not overdone as many American IPA’s are. I have no idea how they managed such contrasting flavor in such an intense fashion that doesn’t leave a lingering aftertaste, but they did it. This one had great flavors that is dominated by the blend of hops that just floats perfectly on the palate leaving you very satisfied.

The mouthfeel is smooth and silky without being too heavy. Overall this one is extremely drinkable. Very satisfying and a majorly good beer from the boys and Gals at Saint Arnolds.

And one more major bonus, this beer is an Operation Homefront product. All Profits from the sale of this beer goes to goes to service members and wounded soldiers to lend assistance where it is greatly needed. The fact that I get to drink a great beer and help our soldiers and their families at the same time is just fantastic. Finally someone figured out how to bottle some patriotism.

I highly recommend it. I can’t wait to have some more.

Time to stop typing and start drinking.

Thanks to bentwookie for this! Tulip glass.

A: Light golden with excellent clarity, a finger or so of bright white head. Very good retention, leaving a solid cap for a good bit.

S: Pretty big, delicious aroma at first of citrus and melted caramel and some other stuff that passed me by, but it kind of sputters out after a few minutes. Never had that happen before. Pale malt, lemony edge, some floral remain.

T: Piney with some citrus and crystal malt notes as well, a little biscuity, mild+ bitterness on the finish. Tastes more like a hoppier pale ale than an IPA. I'm used to IPAs which are borderline DIPAs, so I expect breweries to cheat upward not downward.

M: Medium body and medium-light carbonation.

O: Solid, easy to drink IPA on the lighter end of the spectrum.
