Bottle > Pint Glass
A - Pours a mildly hazy gold, pillowy 2 finger head, nice retention.
S - Big earthy hops, huge pine scent, fresh hops, a little mint, orange peel, and some grapefruit.
T - Big time IBU but not overwhelming, its got a fresh earthy hop profile, i love the fresh mint flavor in this beer, you get some of the citrus but not much.
M - Bitterness can be a bit much at times, but it sets well and is rather refreshing.
O - For a decent go-to IPA, its a good selection, Its a very fresh tasting pine and mint style IPA, and for what its worth, goes to a good cause.

Tawny colored brew, very hazy with a light white head and nice lacing as it quickly falls. Very little aroma, some clean fresh baked bread scent with a hint of pine hop resin.

Crisp up front with a solid bite from the hop bitterness. Metallic resin hop flavor. Flavor almost like a clean copper penny. Hints of malt sweetness are swept up by the incredibly dry finish. The finish is as sharp as the first sip. Aftertaste lingers with some medicinal spicy resin hop flavor.

Nothing offends, and it brings the IBU's, but I've been spoiled by IPAs drenched in citrus-tropical flavors. The aroma is totally lacking and I was hoping for more defined hop flavors. The beer is so dry it could cut your tongue. A poor man's Torpedo isn't a bad thing, and you're helping shelter animals so that's a big plus too I guess.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Very slight chill haze. Dark gold. Head is bright-white and drops to an almost non-existent head with a slightly larger collar. Some nice rings of lacing stick around.

Smell: Floral and leafy. Small pale malt sweetness. Some biscuity notes as well. Herbal with a touch of yeast. Grapefruit rind. Mild pithy bitterness. Cereal grains. Orange and gummy candy. Almost like a flowered Jell-O. Pretty mild overall.

Taste: More leafy than anything else. Solid hit of caramel malt sweetness. Biscuit dough, cracker snap. Herbal and floral in good measure with some bitter grapefruit rind. Oily without any of the associated slickness. Vaguely earthy. Some lingering bitterness. Slightly spicy with enough character to be interesting.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation on a medium body. Slightly dry on the finish with a juicy element to the middle of the sip.

Overall: Your last chance has a 50% success ratio,

A decent IPA, pushing the boundary of English IPA. An odd hop profile with a solid malt backing. Needs a bit of refinement, but it's absolutely drinkable as it.
