Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours a nice cloudy gold color, 1 finger of fizzy white head, no lacing, a little yeast floating around.
S - Big tropical attack, mango, pineapple, dragonfruit, then some dank floral notes, definitely some grassy tones.
T - Great flavor out of an unexpected brew, lots of those tropical fruits without being overly sweet or candy-like. Nice floral bitterness to it, a little cracker kinda malt to it. Some grassy undertones.
M - Very clean and bright feel, a little sweetness on the end, but very balanced.
O - There's a lot of times where I judge a beer based on its label before tasting it, I got it because it was an IPA I havent tried, and the label is just very plain, but this is an outstanding IPA thats somewhat simple, but bursting with great balanced and fresh flavor.

Bottle, decanted into standard pint tumbler...not date on bottle...

*Tip - let this beer reach 45-50 degrees...you get much more of the delicious aromas and flavors...I find really hoppy beers are much better and more complex when they are a bit warmer...you get much more flavor/aroma...

A - Hazy light orange a short head that leaves a thin layer and nice lacing...

S - Very nice grassy, citrus, dank, and herbaceous aroma

T - Very nice citrusy, tropical notes, apricots, with a hint of spice and grapefruit pith; a pleasant lingering citrus bitterness with a kiss of malty sweetness

M - Clean, crisp, smooth with a hint of creaminess

Overall - - A great MidWest IPA. A little west coast influence, but definitely its own animal. Any hophead would enjoy this beer. Would probably be awesome on tap and I will look for this whenever visiting family in ohio in the future!

Cheers!

Bottle poured in to great lakes brewing co pint glass about half inch head relatively clear brassy golden color aroma was as expected of an IPA citrusy and bright taste was full and refreshing with a slightly oily finish over all this is a great IPA I would buy this buy the case for sure
