orange hue to it. Lots of visible carbonation streaming up from the bottom of the glass. Upon pour a nice, two inch plus head of off white,
notes of citrus as well as a piney sort of smell were both very evident from the beginning. However, there was more to it then that, in fact there was a nice malted back that made up the bulk of the aroma assault of piney like hops. Not extremely bitter, but rather mellow and smooth and just enough to get the ball rolling. A tremdous amount of malt then becomes apparent. Great earthen tones again, and a good use of roasted malts. Nice sweetness, some light candy like sweetness, but primarily a dark, balancing sweetness to it. Great dry finish,

2013 edition with mosaic hops
Beige head. Good retention with a lot of lace. Color is a clear golden orange.
Flavor profile is piney hops. Hop resiny juiciness. A fair amount of bready malts. A bit of grapefruit citrus. Pretty standard.
Mouthfeel: bitter and sticky.
Overall, an okay ipa, but nothing standing out here. Decent.

Big off white head slowly settles into a nice lacing above a clear copper colored beer.
A light aroma of citrus hops blended with with a light caramel aroma.
Nice citrus hops bite in the taste of this beer, and after the initial hops passes there is a slight maltiness that seems to mix quite well.
A dry aftertaste that bring with it a slight bit of hops and malts with this medium bodied IPA.
A decent enough IPA seems to be better now then when they first released it, either that or the field has got watered down out there.

Poured from a bottle in a mixed 12 pack into a tumbler pint. I was excited to still see it available. Clear, vibrant, caramel coloring with a thin, filmy, clingy, white head. Aromas of resiny, wet hops and rich, sweet caramel and toffee. Flavors are sharp and bitter initially, with rich, wet hops shining through, balanced with a sweet, roasty toffee backbone. Rich and bitter balanced aftertaste with a rich, slick finish. Tasty.

Aroma is as much malty as it is hoppy, and has an overtone of honey-sweet apple. It pours a dark, slightly hazy coppery amber with a thick, fluffy and persistent pale tan head. Flavor has firm hoppy and malty notes with an undertone of caramel and subtle bitter and apple notes, plus just a touch of sweetness that balances the hop bitterness. Tasty! Firm, lively texture has a decent amount of fizz and leaves a hoppy, fruity, slightly malty finish.
