This bottle was brought back from NYC. Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Westbrook pint glass.
A: Clear deep gold, with about a finger's worth of white head. Visible carbonation on the low side.
S: Grassy, pine, herbal, and a bit of dank hops with a nice cracker malt in the background.
T: Big grassy, herbal and melon wiht the pine and a bit of spicy hop presence, and a nice malt profile with just a bit of caramel flavor. Mild bitterness lingers after the swallow.
M: Medium to a bit heavy body for an IPA. Good carbonation sensation and low alcohol presence.
O: Overall, a pretty good IPA but nothing that truly makes it stand out from the crowded room of its peers. This is my first beer from Speakeasy and it was plenty good enough to make me interested in finding a few more brews from them - but maybe not a repeat performance of this particular one.

A-Pours amber with some haze. Head is pretty thick. It retains well. Leaves chunks of lace.
S-Aroma is pleasantly fruity in its hoppiness. Label says its Citra and Amarillo- yeah I can grasp that pretty easily, it's straightforward and the nose isn't really aggressive but it brings out the crucial aspects of the hops. Tropical, lightly floral, citrusy and grassy.
T-The flavor is a mirror image of the aroma. It's got all the tasty aspects you want in this hop combination. Citrus, bright tropical fruit, grass, and so forth. Malt is caramel and pale and well balanced.
M-Sneaky bitterness. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Status quo through and through.
O-I liked this beer a lot. It managed to strike a chord with me, which can be very rare with the IPA style.
