This beer pours a copper hue with a thick off-white head that slowly settles, producing sticky lacing on the glass. Carbonation is quite lively, making for some awesome head retention. On the nose at first is a blast of hops. The citra is definitely present. Notes of grapefruit, some pineapple, spice and cedar give way to aromas of caramel and toast. On the palate, the hops are spicy and pungent, with notes of citrus, pine, and grass. Malt nicely balances the beer with hints of caramel, and a bit of honey. Finish is dry and very pleasant.

This well-balanced, medium-bodied brew is quite good. Alcohol is hardly noticeable, making it extremely easy to drink. An awesome brew, and perfectly fitting for a special anniversary release.

12oz bottle into Summit Oatmeal Stout glass (review from notes 11/11)

Look is like most IPA's: a slightly red hued orange-gold. Smell is fruity, piney hops with a warm malt background. Taste is great, this is their best IPA yet: bitter piney hops dominate with a semi-sweet caramel malt background. Feel is well carbonated, medium, and crispy.

Good representation of the style. Does nothing new but does it well.
