Enjoyed from a 12 oz bottle
Another from a great brewery, thus IPA pours a bright amber copper color with a nice thick
lightly off white head and great clinging lacing. Nose of caramel malts, citrus and pine hops,
grapefruit, orange zest, and lemon peel. Flavors are sweet to the sides, bitter hops to the
back, and citrus hops over all. This is a finely balanced IPA that even a non-hop head like
myself can enjoy. Tons of citrus malts, light bittering to the aftertaste, and a great malt
backbone that gives it a fantastic drinkability.

A must for hop heads and those who are on the border who prefer big malty brews.

Pours a beautiful deep amber with a slight ruby tint. The head is thick when first poured and settles down pretty quickly, leaving a slight sticky lacing. The aroma is pleasant, with earthy hops dominating, a little pine in the middle and a smidge of malt, way in the back. The taste is about the same. The body has a pleasant thickness to it and little bite from the hops on the finish. This is a very good IPA, well made and all that.
