12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, best before 10/2014. Pours crystal clear orange amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper/pine, caramel, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops and moderate malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper/pine, caramel, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper/pine, caramel, bread, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice flavor balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice and pleasant IPA. Good balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, bready and caramel malt. Body is medium and crisp. Citrusy, piney, grassy hops balanced by caramel malt and some fruity notes. Finish is medium and dry. Very mild hop character for AIPA.
