Poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a misty but vibrant golden/amber color. Beautiful color, really. There's a lot of of frothy khaki head that leaves some lacing along the side, and a little carbonation.

S: Hops and citrus. That's about it. Nice and strong and pretty simple and standard. If I use my imagination, I might be getting some coriander or strawberry, but I basically have to be drowning in it to come up with those aromas.

T: Hops and citrus again. It's not flat by any means. It is bright and vibrant. Once again, I don't know if I'm getting some other flavors (maybe there's some earthiness), but it is pretty good.

M: Maybe a little too much carbonation and dryness at the end, but it is rich and full and gives a robust quality to a robust style.

O: It is standard, but this is a very well done IPA that is vibrant enough to make it worth your while.

A: Dark copper, with brown and red tints. Clear with medium high carbonation. Surprising low head out of the bottle, however left a respectable layer of white foam for the long haul.

S: Wheat crackers, some rye bread and zesty citrus of orange rind. Maybe a little spiciness of lemongrass.

T: Cedar. Walnut. Orange rind. This brew had a nice chewy malt backbone. Nice long and slow pipe tobacco, malt vinegar and balsamic finish.

M: Starts off watery and juicy. Nice and Medium dry through the middle. Dryness lingers but remains mellow. Low acidity for your usual ipa. Really easy going.

O: Great everyday ipa. It's mellow and drinkable. The malt balances the hop nicely making it extremely versatile. The only downside to being a well rounded beverage means that it doesn't stand out in any particular way in the hops department.
