Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a tulip glass. Best by 01/14/15

A -Ruby red, with orange highlight, clear. One finger head that dissapates quickly.

S - Resinous hops, faint pine, tinge of sea salt.

T - Very clean, pine, resin, some background malts and grains.

M - Carbonation moderately low, touch toward watery, a bitter dry finish.

O - Very tasty, fresh hops are always appreciated and recommended.

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Deep caramel brown and orange bronze colored. Crystal clear body, with just the right amount of fine and slow rising carbonation. Head is a creamy light tan, creme like color, with a big whipped up appearance. Large island retention and soapy lacing at a simple three fingers tall.

Hop aroma is solid if a little varied and subtle. Hints of caramel like malts sweetness, and light floral pine action. Some hints of dank quality as well, matching nicely with what seems a thick malt presence.

Palate seems however to be a little bit uninspiring. Slightly chalky mouthfeel with a dry hop aromatic light pine. Strange bitterness on the finish and a bit indistinct, not really showcasing a sense of variety or distinct hop character. Malt sweetness thought to be expected is actually almost hard to even taste, coming off as a very watered down beer with not much else going on.

Cascade. Where's the citrus action on this? Overall just a regular IPA that while drinkable doesn't really stand out in the crowd.
