Poured from a bottle

Pours a hazy yellow with a white head, leaving some lacing on the glass as it goes down.

Smells of hops, but not overpowering - seems to have a bit of that cat urine aroma going on, which is certainly not a bad thing in this type. Also a bit of a grassy smell.

Taste is great - tastes like the hops are near the fresh side, which I wasn't expecting, but is always a pleasant surprise. Nice maltiness to balance the beer - not overly bitter at all.

Mouthfeel is pretty well balanced, but a bit towards the bitter side - obviously it's an IPA, so again, not really a negative.

Overall, a very good IPA, with a changing character as it warms up - will definitely look for again.

This poured out as a really nice hazy golden yellow color with a nice soapy white head on top. The lacing is very sticky which looks awesome on the glass. The retention was decent also. The smell of the beer had some malt and a good amount of hop aromas. The taste had a very nice malt backbone with a pleasant hop flavor in there too. The mouthfeel of the beer had a good amount of body to it as well as a solid carbonation and a dry finish. Overall I really enjoyed this IPA. I would drink this one again.

Bottle pours a hazy amber with sufficient off-white head and residual lacing. Malt-forward aroma may be an indication of bottle age? Although purchased this week, can't find a date indication on the bottle. Flavour is well balanced, with caramelized malt sweetness transitioning into tropical fruit and hop bitterness. The impressively lingering bitter finish is a pleasant surprise. Definitely a beer and a brewery worth trying!!

A:orange amber. soapy, thin head - after pouring to pint glass not much head evident at all. A few sudsy parts against edge of glass. Soapy looking lacing.

S:pine, fresh woodshavings, grapefruit

T: first, noticeable hoppy resin flavor, quickly subsides, to sweeter pleasant aftertaste with apricot notes, some bready yeast flavors

M: sharpness initially subsides, some bitter tingling left on tongue

Overall:a nicely balanced American IPA - the hops are upfront and prominent, but not agressive or overpowering. The initial bitterness giving way to sweetness is pleasant. Definitely one to buy again.

I had a 1pint, 6 oz. which I believe is a 22 oz.

Appearance is a golden color.

Smell is somewhat sweet and fresh. It has an English hop aroma.

I admire the taste which consists of a nutty, wooden feel. Very easy to drink for me since I enjoy IPA's to their full extent.

The feel is very smooth.

Overall, I really like this beer. If you are a fan of IPA's, you definitely need to try this one. I plan on buying a growler the next chance I get.
