Bottled 11/2013.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with earth and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a high amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer with lots of earthy and very bitter hop flavors that I don't care for too much.

Clear copper gold with one finger of dense white foam that has good staying power. Fair lacing as the level drops. Nice aroma mostly biscuits and caramel. Big initial bitterness but not complex. Strong malt presence makes the beer more enjoyable. Not a typical IPA but more like an uber Amber. Good smooth mouthfeel with standard amount of carbonation. Long mostly dry bitter finish. Interesting beer but would have liked more interesting hop character. This beer was only about 2 months old so it was relatively fresh. Worth trying for sure but not one to walk a mile for. It still had a small cushion of head at the bottom of the glass. I had to bump the rating to a 3.75 in the appearance category for that.

Light copper color. Mildly hoppy nose. Light malt flavors. This offering finishes dry and bitter but with a funny aftertaste.

Pours into a nonic a clear deep copper color with a nice looking sticky white head that leaves a full ring of lace as it settles slowly into a frothy mass.Not much hop presence for an IPA in the nose,mild leafy hops along with caramel/biscuit malt.If this was categorized as an APA it would get a high ranking from me but the hops just are not big enough all around here.Biscuit malts with caramel sweetness with a leafy almost minty like "herbal" hoppy finish.Not a horrible beer but the hop profile is lacking for the style.
