Bottle shared by Curran yesterday, thanks man.

Pours a dark-ish copper amber color. Doesn't really look like the sort of IPA I generally like. There is a half inch head, and a good amount of webby lacing.

Smells a bit malty, caramelly and whatnot, with some grass, and a hint of citrus. Not getting off to a good start here.

It's ok for an IPA to be balanced, I like that- malt character is important. But this is just malty and only mildly hoppy- and the malt character is not even that interesting. It's your typical sweet, slightly cloying caramel, with some breadiness, with only the slightest smattering of piney hop flavors on top. Just not all that well done, in my opinion.

This one has a body of medium thickness, with a crisp mouthfeel, and a moderate amount of carbonation.

Not that good of an IPA, does nothing to stand out.

This is one of my go to IPA's--in fact I keep a keg of this in my kegerator on a regular basis.

Appearance - Lovely dark orange color-a thing of beauty. Lacing throughout is very intricate.

Smell - Initial aroma is not overpowering, but the citrusy hops are evident throughout.

Taste - This is not a monster hop bomb, but the bitter flavors are well balanced. For 7.5%, it hides the alccohol well and drinking several of these in one sitting can be quite easy.

Mouthfeel - Starts off thick and rich, but finishes with a citrusy tartness. Delicious from the start to the end of the glass.

Drinkability: This is a very drinkable IPA, which is why I keep bringing it back to the kegerator. Usually like to rotate all the different IPA's, but this has become a constant companion. Great value when compared to the other great IPA's out there. Be sure and check it out if you are in the area.
