This beer was very nice and tasty! Good looking beer with an outstanding white cap that left a bit of foam on my glass. Classic micro brew scent. Some pine scents on the nose, but also very malty. Not overly hoppy, but you must classify this as an IPA! Cannot see through the glass, much like a great hefeweizen. Nice tasting, buscuit base. Very pleased with the finish! Very fine brew!

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a clear amber color with a two finger head of off-white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to leave a heavy level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is nice and interesting aroma overall. It has a sweet aroma of tangerine and caramel mixed with some melon smells of honeydew and cantaloupe. Along with these aromas are some nice hop smells of a grapefruit citrus as well as a subtle aroma of a floral and grassy hop.

Taste – The taste begins with a malty and bready flavor mixed with some sweeter flavors of caramel and tangerine. The caramel fades quickly, but is replaced by more tangerine and some other sweeter flavors of light fruits. The hop is very light upfront with just a hint of grapefruit. The grapefruit grows a bit stronger as the flavor advances, but never really grows all that potent. A little bit of a grassy and floral hop flavor come at the very end, mixing with the rest and leaving a rather sweet and malty lightly hopped flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is average. A bit thicker of a body would have been better for the malty and fruit flavors all while helping bolster the hop flavors of the brew.

Overall – The flavor was alright, but not really all that hoppy and sorta weak for an IPA. Nothing too outrageously good here.
