Had a Growler of it over a weekend. Great pale ale - very drinkable, I wasn't expecting to be blown away by Bill & Ron's first home brew. Nice gold color with a pleasant hop aroma, not much head and very little lace. No lingering after taste which makes this an excellent thirst quencher or a "Victory Starter" for the uninitiated.

appearance; nice, slightly hazy, amber color, pours a small/ medium amount of off white head that settles into lacing that clings the glass tightly. steady stream of bubbles constantly rising to the surface in the beer itself.
smell; pleasant hop notes that include pine and mild citrus. hint of sweetness in there as well.
taste; nearly identical to the aroma. mildly citrusy, with pine, citrus, hints of flowery ester, kick of malt sweetness in the background.
mouthfeel; medium body, mild carbonation, slightly oily but not heavy, moisture lingers on the tongue in a distinct way.
overall; very good for when you're looking for a beer that isn't heavy or offensive but still want to be satisfied by something mildly complex. if it was made in six packs i would probably add it to my list of go to's.

Poured into a perfect pint.
4.75 A: Clear dark orange color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is very good and plentiful lacing is left.
4.0 S: This smells pretty damn good. It has a viney, grassy caramel thing going. There's also a good bit of citrusy orange with just a hint of lemon.
4.0 T: The taste is also very good. Grassy hops with citrusy undertones. Orange is strong with lemon, apple, and peach. Deep, complex caramel.
4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Velvety richness and super smooth.
4.0 D: This is a good beer. It's been a while since an IPA impressed me.

Appearance: pours a dark orange / amber color with a 2" head that slowly falls to a thick surface covering. Nice lace develops.
Smell: caramel and a mild hop presence is detectable by the nose.
Taste: caramel, bready malt, some mild orange tones, ripe fruits, and a milder than expected bitterness, Some earthy tones are also present.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied bere. Lightly crisp throughout. Short lasting aftertaste.
Overall: a very easy to consume beer that has that homebrew taste to it that reminded me of some batches I made years ago. Very enjoybale beer.

A - Slightly hazy amber brown color with plenty of carbonation bubbles feeding the 1/4 inch of head that sticks around for a bit. Nice lacing for Homebrew.
S - Citrus hops, orange peel, squeeze of lemon and a nice caramel malt backbone.
T - Lemon rind and bitter grapefruit almost sour. The body is bready and not overall sweet. Leaves a bitter bite on the tongue. Not bad!
M - A bit on the medium side so it drinks heavier than I expected. Still goes down easy enough.
Overall its a decent IPA reminds me of Voodoo in a way since they are a commercial but home brew kind of brewery. Worth the price at just 6 bucks a bomber.
