A: Poured from a can to a pint glass. Pours a very nice amber, 1 finger of carbonation, good start

S: Didn't get much off of it, for an IPA expected a bit more, although can't discount possibility that my allergies were acting up

T: Taste is very good. Piney hit with grapefruit hops on top, and a mild bitterness that lingered but overall balanced, as the mid-american moniker would suggest. Very nice lacing on the way down, too.

M: Not too thin, as above a good solid balance, pretty easy to drink really especially on a hot summer day.

Overall: I would definitely pick this up again. Can't say it does anything amazing, but on the other hand it was citrus'y enough and had a good punch. And maybe a bit of bias as a mid american myself :)

If I saw it on tap somewhere, I would get it first no questions asked to get things rolling, if that helps.

Aroma was not especially noteworthy. However it wasn't bad either. Bottomline it was okay. Flavor was very good though. I enjoyed the slight but not overpowering bitterness. Mouth feel was not add full as I preferas out seemed a little watery. However it was the one I decided to have when it came time for a point with
my pizza

a: pours a golden yellow, very hazy, moderately carbonated

s: hops are very piney, light spiciness, with a mellowness notable in the malts

t: begins very refreshing and robust, hops are piney but mellow, finishes lift yet crisp

o: good American-style IPA, decent abv, worth a try

Fluffy, creamy white head, leaving a big ring of what will surely be crusty/dried head by tomorrow morning. Hazy golden through the pint glass.

Not a huge IPA in the nose, which is actually refreshing for a chance. Wafts of floral and citrus, like violets and fresh oranges, illuminate the nose to what should be a really good beer.

A bit bracing in its vegetative bitterness, with less of what the nose might lead you to believe is here. In fact, any florals here are very secondary, with only the possibility of orange rind being a citrus component.

Vegetative and heavy on the tongue, like masticated leaves. Something to be desired here.

Nice for a different take on IPA, especially here in the summer, but not to enjoy in the long-term.
