My favorite offering at the time by SA. Pours a slightly cloudy golden with bubbly white head. Aroma of floral, piney hops, citrus, pine, some light flowers. Low to medium bitter , with some clove flavor going on alongside muted pine and very light citrus. A good intro to the style, but nothing special. Very sessionable.

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.

This is a beautiful, copper colored IPA with a crisp, refreshing taste and a nice bitter bite. This is one of the smoother IPAs I have had and is very drinkable. The beer keeps a decent head and has a nice, fragrant aroma. I have been on a streak of IPAs of late and this is one I would like to have more of...

Looks decent enough. Clear copper under a good sized head that settles to some sort of cap and ring combo. Plenty of lace.

Lots of pine in the nose alongside sugary malt and just a whiff of alcohol. Juicy, resinous. Interesting.

Lots of pine to taste also, alongside some citrus peel. Still pretty sweet from malt, just a tad too much so for my liking. Proper lingering dry hop finish.

Drinkable, just a little too much malt sweetness.
