A: A medium copper colored ale that produces a good stand of foam when poured. The head is rocky in texture and off white. The bottle has a much appreciated best by date of 10/16/13.

S: Strong citrus hops with aromas of pine and some pineapple. The hops smell is rich layered at first fades after a few minutes. The malt bring a little sweetness and some caramel.

T: The strong hops bitterness and strong citrus hops flavor dominate. With little malt support the hops stand on their own becoming almost too bitter. The balance stays on the side of being aggressively bitter without getting harsh. There is a light malt sweetness with a medium-low caramel flavor.

M: A medium bodied creamy beer with moderately strong carbonation.

O: A very good IPA that I'll try find again.

Amber in color with a super creamy off-white head that sticks around for the whole glass and throws off plenty of sticky lacing. Sharp raw herbs right from the get-go with a surprisingly hefty maltiness - toasted bread with a slather of caramel. Hops continue to smack around the palate despite the malt. Grapefruit pith, coarse herbal flavors, hopsack, earthiness, under-ripe strawberry, grassy bitterness. The 80 IBUs shows off in the long biter finish. Not the juicy citrus/pine bomb I was expecting, but more of an old school craft IPA with a focus on bitterness as much as hop flavor and aroma. A nice change of pace from what I've been drinking lately

Nice classic hop aroma with firm malt background.
Frothy and firm head with lots of sticky lacing. Slighlty cloudy brownish amber.
Tasty!. Good malt flavors with clear malt sweetness and a crunchy malt character. Followed by some very nice hopping. Smooth bitterness and a moderate bitterness.
Nice soft carbonation and enough heft in the body to make it have some grit.
This is better than the average score it holds. I'm surprised. It's pretty darn good.
