Pours a deep amber gold with a white lacing.

Fruity citrus hop aroma with some biscuit malt undertone.

Fresh fruity hop flavor with some berry and piney elements along with biscuity malts.

Medium body with a tingly carbonation on the tongue.

A very nice IPA well worth trying if you are visiting, especially enjoyable flavor on this one.

Had a sample and mug of this at the brewery today. Liked it so much I grabbed a growler and reviewing this first pour from the growler into a Duvel tulip.

Deep orange body with small mix of light yellow color. Big three-finger off-white head with decent retention and good lacing. Very nice appearance.

The first thought that came to mind with the brew was dank. Very hoppy notes in the aroma, especially pine resin and mix of fruit and herbal notes. Light caramel malt note in the background.

The flavor follows the aroma fairly closely but I get a good bit more sweet fruit flavors than in the aroma. The sweet flavors by no means dominate, but just contribute to the overall hop flavor. The malt flavor blends nicely as well.

Medium texture in the mouthfeel with a dry finish. Very pleased with this beer overall and would definitely have it again.

Poured on-tap at the brewpub and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a pale, crystal clear, copper coloring with a thin, light, off-white head. Nose of grapefruit, resinous pine, and bitter notes, with a roast and sweet backbone. Flavors are hop forward, with pine tassels, tart grapefruit, and bitter overloading the caramel backbone. Mid-bodied, with a very bitter, piney aftertaste. Dry, bitter, almost astringent finish. Solid! I really like this beer.

awesome IPA, these guys have done a great job of making a spot on IPA. perfect in golden color. the American hop variety was chosen perfectly. these guys really took their time with this. i'm glad to see this beer goes back to tradition, they have crafted this beer to taste, look, smell and feel like a traditional IPA and they have done it.
