Pours a chill-hazed & effervescent caramel with 3+ fingers of cream colored head. Stays hazy, nice lacing & head retention

S: Bready, tropical fruit notes, not much else

T: Breadyness, caramel, pineapple & woody hop notes. More bready sweetness as this warms, some pineapple, orange peel & woody hops. Finishes with pineapple, a little grapefruit, breadyness, & a little dryness

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, a little grainy, skews a little sweet, but bitterness swings back in as it warms

Drinks easy, tasty take on the style, wish it was little more hop forward in the nose...

"Pairs well with your homies. A sessional India Pale Ale that doesn't slap you in the face with bitterness. Negatron- this one inspires to find your closest pals or the person next to you at the bar and give 'em a big ol 'UP TOP!'" Brewed in the style of an India Pale Ale. Available in 6 pack cans and on draft.

Poured from a 12 oz. can to a tulip glass. Served above 57º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a golden white head of a frothy foam consistency over a densely hazy body, color copper amber with dense specks of sediment in tow. Carbonation is plentiful with small bubbles and relaxed. Retention is very good, lacing is light and patchy. 4.25

(Smell) Strong hop aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, faint grass and pithy lemon for a bright sunny hop aroma generates a moderate perceived bitterness. Malts form a subtle aromatic drive with mostly clean pale malts with a drizzle of biscuity caramel sweetness for a largely simple profile with a touch of body, keeping the hops the deserving star of the show. Potency is medium/high. 4

(Taste) Flavor is slightly less bright than the aroma, with mostly grassy and lemony hops coming through, fruity and citrusy flavors are less discernible in the flavor. Bitterness is moderate for the style. The malt profile is fairly simple, with a subtle biscuity caramel body, a touch of sweetness and a somewhat dry finish. A very nice use of hops are in this IPA although not quite as varied to the degree that the aroma had teased. 3.75

(Mouthfeel) Texture is lightly chewy, clean, dry. Carbonation generates a soft frothiness for a mild, foamy mouthfeel, perhaps a touch flatter than desirable. The body is medium for the style, medium+ amongst all beers. Balance is very slightly bitter over sweet with a fair representation of both. Alcohol presence is low, and there are no off-characters to note. 3.75

(Overall) A very solid introductory beer into a brewery that I didn't know existed less than a week ago, and I'm already craving more from them. Highly drinkable, clean and a nice usage of hops for a well-rounded IPA. I could argue that at a solid price and availability, this could give Jai Alai a run for its money. Worth a shot to anybody who enjoys a tasty IPA. 3.75

Saw this at my Total Wine & More store and decided to give it a try. The pour came out good. nice copper color with a good thick head. The aroma is of spicy hops, similar to Dogfish Head 60 minute. The taste was horrible. Burnt rust. I don't know if it was a bad batch or this is the true recipe. Either way this became a drain pour.
