A: amber orange, nice color, small white head

S: Fresh pine and hop smell

T: There is some sweetness at first that transitions to bitter hoppiness and then kind of just fades out...

M: It is light and pretty carbonated

O: This is a pretty average IPA offering. Nothing special.

Pale amber color, fairly clear but a slight haze (from hops?). Pours a biggish white head, somewhat coarse but long lasting.

Somewhat biscuity malt aroma, and smells a bit like a DIPA. Some earthy/piney hop aromas, but fairly gentle.

Interesting malt flavor up front, somewhat sweet and a bit biscuity in keeping with the aroma. Hop bitterness lingers just beneath the surface, and grows to come out strong in the finish. Finish has a lingering but pleasant hop bitterness.

Medium body, a moderate carbonation. No astringency, and only the slightest hint of alcohol warming.

Front end is a little different than the typical American IPA, but the hop bitterness on the back end hits the mark perfectly. Decisively bitter without being a complete hop bomb.

12 oz bottle. Tulip.

A: Bright orange, half finger of head that dies quickly.

S: Citrusy hops, pine cones, and some caramel.

T: This starts sweet but bitters quickly with dry piney hoppiness.

M: It is juicy early but then dries out.

O: This has potential but doesn't quite live up to the standards of the top IPAs.
