I had this on tap at the Bier Stein in Eugene, OR. It was served with no head at all - a golden amber clear color. It was somewhat bubbly, but not much. It smelled really sweet - with a lot of apple aromas to it. The taste had a bite of bitter hops, but not too bad. It wasn't as complex as the smell would suggest, and had somewhat of a bitter aftertaste. Otherwise it was quite refreshing, but a little flat.
Serving type: on-tap

12oz into the SN IPA Glass.
Pours a clear, coppery orange with a foamy off white head.
Citrusy, floral hop blend upfront both in the aroma and taste.
Medium bodied, average carbonation.
A decent IPA. Nothing particularly special, but still an enjoyable flavor profile.

3.18/5 rDev -13.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Bright yellow glass with a lot of haze, holds a thin white cover of foam that leaves some lacing.
Smell: Not a lot going on, a mild hop note, mild clean grainy, almost corn note.
Taste: An APA, not an IPA, the hops just aren't up to the level expected. While everything here is well made, the hops are a bit grassy and earthy where I prefer a citric note. There is a slight metallic aftertaste that is annoying as well. Finish is sweet, where I should be getting a dose of hop oils.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, prickly carbonation, bit frothy.
Overall: Not my cup of tea. There is a woody, difference about this that I could see being a love or hate kind of thing, but it doesn't do it for me.
