A good IPA. Tan and orange color, slight cloudiness, and ashort white head. Nice fresh citrus and hop aroma. Crisp grapefruit hop and citrus taste and properly bitter. Would have liked a little more hops, as this borders on an APA or IPA-lite, but a decent IPA, nonetheless.

i can't really comment to this brew's availability (though i have to pick one. i should have thought to ask). it's not listed as something they bottle, but as the "house" IPA it seems likely to be offered fairly consistently

reddish copper color, poured tall so there's no room for a head, but a white collar encircles a wispy film

poured very cold, so that's all i can smell at first (maybe coors is onto something with their "coldest tasting beer" pitch. coors? busch? can't tell the difference). with warmth comes aromas of pine and caramel malts

the hop flavor is dominated by pine as well. not what i would call a malty IPA; the menu says "dry" and i'm iclined to agree. i can feel some munich, or if not, there's something to bite into here even if it's not much. not too bitter, though hop aroma and flavor are prominent

good beer. not overly complex, but good
