3.88/5  rDev +9.6%

Red-orange amber color with a lovely sprout of head. Lacing is two thumbs up.

Thin hoppiness. Minty hop, raw leaf, aspirin powder, floral notes, and more chalkiness. Rather dry, and non-fruity. Not a boastful hop nose, but malts neither. They have no stock in this beer. Just a pale cereal note that gets lost behind minty leaf, flowery hop, and the smell of talc.

Flavors are cleaner. Slicing through lime leaf, aspiriny hops, raw hop cone, peppermint, floral notes, lemon rind, and more of that pale cereal backing. Crispy and delicious. So easy to drink. Body is sudsy light; meaning, the carbonation steals all the good waves. I almost thought this was their session IPA, because of the drinkability. Don't get me wrong... the flavors are great.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a light brownish color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is a bit hoppy, some malts are present. Taste is hops, bitter, some pine, a bit of malts at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a decent beer, but not a great IPA.

Best by 7/15/14. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours burnt orange with nice clarity; fluffy white head that sticks around and leaves great lacing and retention. The aromas are subtle with lots of caramel malts blended with some grapefruit. Lots of bread. The flavors are very earthy. Lots of malts. There's a solid earthy bitterness. Lots of grass with hints of pine. Some lemon and lime too. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and pretty smooth. Moderate carbonation makes this an easy drinking IPA.

This is a decent IPA, but it's pretty boring and doesn't end up really grabbing my attention. I'm a fan of Stoudts, but this isn't my favorite from them.
