Inversion IPA pours a dark amber color with a long lasting lacing head. There is a bold floral hoppy aroma. The taste has a nice strong hoppy taste, good floral taste. Good body, good flavors, wished it was drier. Overall a good solid IPA, nothing fancy but of good quality.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

A dark murky copper body holds a thick tan head that slowly recedes, leaving thick lines of lacing as the beer goes down.

The aroma is thick spruce and pine with floral fruits and a touch of citrus rind.

The taste is that of the aroma. Spicy wood opens up into hints of apricot and pineapple, with sprucy bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly sticky.

Overall, this is just really how I like my IPAs.

Pours a slightly hazy reddish brown, with a big, fluffy light tan head. Massive lacing that sticks to the glass as the beer travels down it. Really nice looking. Aromas of stone fruit and a bit of grass. Taste begins with a big dried apricot flavor, then some dark caramel, then some pine, and an herbal bitter finish. Rich mouthfeel. Overall a very good IPA, though I typically prefer IPA's to be drier.
