12 oz bottle. it's got months to be notched, maybe February? If so, then almost a year old. boo.

hazy orange rust colored, very thin head. some lacing. aroma is just a bit hoppy, earthy. taste is a bit sweet, aftertaste is only slightly hoppy. seems like it probably is old and faded. medium body, average carbonation.

Pale orange and cloudy pour, initial high head that dissipates quickly. Light sticky lace.

Getting a caramel scent and nice earthy quality to it. Probably due to organic grown ingredients. Smells of slight citrus/rind and earth.

Tastes of slight apple/orange twang slightly caramel backbone/inbetween short and medium more on the medium side- length and medium carbonation

Not a lot of complex or developed flavor, but a good simple IPA with nice earthy notes on the smell and a clean aftertaste.

Tried a pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Calgary. Pale clear classic amber hue with around an inch of whitish head gracing the top. Aroma rather inviting, hop citrus and spice notes galore with just the barest hint of rock candy sweetness. Initial few sips fit the "hop bomb" mould, lots of bright vibrant lemon, lime, grapefruit and tangerine rind/juice which taken together remind one of a mixed citrus beverage with breakfast. Some nice warm black pepper and pine elements come through as well, although eventually things settle down and one is left consuming a pleasant enough tart IPA, rather thin of body, fizzy, and with the malts largely in the background except for an emergent light sweetness. Hop flavors carry through into the semi- dry finish. Although this won't shift too many people's paradigms, there is little to complain about either, and this one gets my vote for its fresh citrus character and smooth bitterness. Some may want more malt to shine through and/or more bitterness up front.
