Your first experience with this IPA is the citrus bouquet from its rocky white head. The initial taste is subdued but gradually becomes intense without any harsh bitterness. The Heartier the Better.

50 IBU

Formerly called "Tell Tale Heart Ale".

Hey, this is a decent brew. This small brewery can kick out some decent beer. I had never heard of them and received the four Poe's as a gift. Well all I can say, is this is pretty good. Hoppy with a middle of the road malt backbone.

Bottom Line: Lets explore some more brews from these guys.

This one looks all over the place in reviews. Maybe there's a lot of older, not so fresh ones out there? Dunno, but the one I experienced actually shocked me.

Typically when I pick up an IPA that hasn't received a ton of lip, I expect a biscuit or watery or wickedly off-balanced drain pour. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised right from the pour. Coppery orange under a very professional grade crème colored head with champion level lacing that stayed present throughout. Nose was a little faint but what piled through the head was piney, grassy and a touch citrusy. First pull presented the same very solid grassiness that was present in the aroma. Balance was good and finished a touch piney.

My only knock on this was a bit of a cloying sweetness on the tongue that hung around for a bit. Otherwise, I'd be more than happy to have this one again.

Just not at all balanced. Way to much bitter on the finish for the lack of flavor and medium ABV. Did not work.
