A – Thin head that quickly dissipated. Cloudy, can see a lot of sediments. Quite orange colored, slightly translucent. Not very appealing.

S – I get orange, pineapple, lemon and hay. A tiny bit of pine and something light like vanilla or coconut. The light smell is slightly earthy, making me lean toward coconut. I find myself wanting a little more pine in here. When I lightly swirl it, I pick up some momentary butter.

T – Some citrus and grass up front, butter with citrus in the middle, and some pine with a good low level of bitterness on the back end. After a few sips, I find myself liking this progression more than on the first sip. I do like the aftertaste quite a bit, the citrus and pine linger through without being too bitter.

M – Medium body, leaning toward the heavy side slightly. Even so, I feel like it keeps its distance from the tongue, making it feel artificially thin. Feels like a good carbonation level in the mouth despite just a wisp of head and a handful of bubbles. Finishes with a good dryness, slightly above average but not by much for an IPA. I’d like if some of the ‘weight’ in the mouth could be transferred to make the perceived mid sip feel a tad thicker (than thin).

D – Seems like an average IPA. Very fruity, but needing a bit more pine. Before I liked IPAs, I probably would’ve found this amazing; it’s definitely a gateway IPA, and for that it is laudable. However, I’m finding the balance to be off in STM. I think the malt level is pretty much good, but some more pine-bearing hops could be added.

A-almost clear golden color that has a small white head that fades fast and leaves a lacing
S-grapefruit, pine, and some lemon
T-slight hop taste at first then you get the hop kick in the aftertaste that gives you a grapefruit dry finish
M- light body and medium carbonation
O-this was not an overpowering hop flavor beer, but solid
