This IPA is not among my favorites. The aroma is spicy, but strangely not as spicy as the pale ale. The thin body barely supports a moderate bitterness and a watery malt character. A soapy flavor binds itself to each sip and grows toward the finish. Just doesn’t seem to be at the top of its game.

This brew poured out at the ACBF 2010 as a golden colored brew with a nice creamy looking white head on top. The lacing wasn't too exciting but the retention was pretty good. The smell of the beer is hoppy with some lighter notes of sweet malts in the background. The taste of the beer has a good semi-sweet bitterness to it. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy feeling with a little bit of a hop tingle. Overall I found this to be pretty good for a regular IPA.

Had this on tap yesterday at the Trinity Brewhouse. First time there so I figured I would go with one of there most popular brews. Served in a standard pint glass.

This IPA poured a dark copper with a bit of haze. Not much head to speak of. Some lacing on the glass too.

Nose was on the hoppier side with mostly floral accents. Some malt is also detectable in the aroma.

This is a nice and tasty brew. Bitter hops up front but a nice malt backbone rounds it out. Finish leaves a nice citric hop presence on the palate.

Medium bodied with medium or so carbonation.

I was impressed with the brewhouse overall and if I find myself back there I would probably order this one up again.

On tap. Pours a dark amber color with a thin head. Fair amount of lacing. Aroma is of sweet pine. Maybe some brown sugar. Flavor is more of that sweet pine taste. Nice bitter finish. Good amount of carbonation. A bit floral. Overall, its a decent Ipa, and I'd order it again.
