4.4/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

BOD 8/19/14. Clear golden pour with a normal head. Excellent lacing, normal retention. Nose of tropical and citrus hops, with some pine in the background, over a light biscuit. Light medium body with a nice slick texture. Slightly above normal carbonation with a nice bit of effervescence on the finish. The excellent flavor profile is complex and a masterpiece of balance. It begins with a balanced blend of hop flavors that flow into a moderate bitterness, that has a spicy note, over a slightly sweet biscuit background. The middle is where the flavor components fade with the alcohol completely hidden. The finish effervesces nicely and leaves you with a nice slightly spicy pine bitterness that flows into grapefruit rind. Outstanding!!

(bottled 071814 - poured into a tulip pint)

A: filtered-clear, bright golden-yellow liquid... two-finger tall, yellowish-white foam... thick, spongy-sudsy build... as nice as the head looks at first, it collapses fairly swiftly and fails to leave much lace

S: lightly-spicy lemon, piney hop resins with a faint background flame of booze... familiar hop aromas that, coincidentally, seem to often accompany lighter-colored IPAs... the citrus be concentrated, however, a bit of light caramel malt pokes through... altogether, invitingly vibrant and suggestively sweetish

T: lemon-tart coated cereal grain... almost an "imperial" Czech pils-like, malty and floral mid point... somewhat herbal finish with a very slight doughy yeast tang in the aftertaste...

M: super-duper foamy-soft flow - at first, it masks an initial hop/alcohol prick that eventually becomes more of a jump-in-the-pool, refreshing, zesty, (fiery) flash that glows long through the finish... very soft and blanket-y (as in flattened)... dry, however, leaving mellow residual streaks of plant syrup

O: the fermentation characteristics from the yeast seem to come through more so than the lion's share of IPAs querfed in my time... the hops flow in a low-voltage electric current - bitter, stingy, and citrusy - so it doesn't knock you over the head - provided you eat well, you could easily knock back 3-4 of these over an evening hanging outside or at a bar, watching the game of the hour

3.5/5  rDev -14.2%

A: Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Sandy, orange-brown in color with an airy 1-finger white head. Some nice lacing appears as the head dissipates. Mostly clear with a light effervescence.

S: Toasted caramel malt up-front with a nice pine hop finish. Light on the nose, with notes of balsam fir, lemongrass, toasty malts, crackers.

T: Well-balanced with a firm malt backbone and a nice citrus/pine hope finish. A light linger that isn't very dry is a nice change for an IPA. Grass, earth, pine needles, and barley all lightly play together in the flavor profile. A nice flavor all-around.

M: Lightly bodied for an IPA, but not insubstantial, this has a good session feel with a laid-back dryness that isn't overpowering. Good stuff all-around.

O: A nice offering that does the IPA style well. At the same time, it's nothing too fancy or crazy. Right-down the middle, but in a nice, pleasant way.

3.71/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, slightly hazed, yellow-gold coloring, with a filmy, clingy, bright white head. Aromas of subtle toasted grains, hints of caramel, floral and herbal spice highlights, and a blend of citrus and tropical fruit notes. A bit less nose than I was expecting. Flavors are citrus and tropical fruit forward, with a char undertone. Pineapple, mango, and apricot blend nicely with grapefruit and lemon zest. Cut grass, pepper spice, evergreen, and pitch notes from the hops provide a good balancing bitterness and dank feel. The body is smooth and light, with a fruit cocktail aftertaste. The finish has a tangy sweet cloy balanced by a solid resinous bitter note. Decent linger on a pretty tasty brew.
