4/5 rDev +1.8%
Poured an attractive amber color with frothy white head and beautiful hoppy aroma of Cascade hops. Mouthfeel was perfect. Flavor was hoppy along with rich caramel flavors. This was a nice hoppy IPA that was smooth and easy drinking. Wish I could get this on a regular basis. Thanks to my friend Gary in Duluth, MN for this one.

3.65/5 rDev -7.1%
Poured into a pint glass.
2.5 A: Lightly hazed medium orange color. One finger of frothy/foamy off-white head. Retention is lacking for an IPA and no lacing is left.
4.5 S: This is super malty without being a big, syruppy type DIPA. Tons of caramel and even some toffee and toastiness. Floral and citrusy hops. Quite nice.
3.5 T: The malty complexity is still there, but it lacks depth in the taste. The caramel, toffee, and toastiness are closer to a tease than a focus. Floral and herbal hop flavor with the slightest citrusy tinge. Despite my complaints, it's not bad.
3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. I wish this had a bit more body and could use some more creaminess as well.
3.5 D: Decent beer that would be awesome if it tasted like it smelled.
