Draft at The Top in a pint glass. Pours golden with some red-orange hue, not much head but maybe the bartender was wiping this off to get it up to the top of the glass. Smell is sweet citrus and faint pilsner like malts in the background. Flavor is a nice crisp citrus, very little bitter, and a hint of sweet. More of an APA than IPA but a very nice beer. Easy drinking. Light and sweet.

A: Poured from the growler into a Sam Smith's nonic-style pint glass. Body is clear amber-orange with a big (3-finger) ivory head that leaves thick foamy lace.

S: Biscuity and caramel malt foundation with citrusy & floral hops on top. Not terribly hoppy in the nose, which is a bit of a surprise.

T: Sweet caramel malt is followed by piney & citrusy hops; finishes with piney bitterness - resin, pine needles and a lingering bit of spruce. Aftertaste is quite bitter, though malt sweetness remains underneath.

M: Good creaminess; carbonation is modest, heft is medium.

O: Easy drinker if you like a long, bitter finish. Surprisingly balanced otherwise, however; it's jut that piney bitter finish that reminds you that this is an American IPA.

Pours a clear light copper. Large soapy topping leaves plenty of lacing down the pint. Smells of herbal, woodsy hops and bready malt. Strong bitterness, mild peppery note and fresh grapefruity citrus. Malt is complimentary only, providing almost enough to balance bodied feel with soft yet ample carbonation. Overall, this tastes like Hop Wallop's little brother. Quite hoppy and very drinkable. One vote for NATO!

This is a smack in the mouth IPA. It's going for pure punch with no intent at grace or a suave delivery. Strong pine and citrus tones are definitely here. Carbonation seems a bit high as I feel it for some time after I finish my sip. It's good, if you like that hop punch, but for me at this point, I like things a bit more refined and evened out. Especially since I'll be working up the ol' hop allergy with this one.
