Thanks Eric for sharing this bomber with me. Poured into a tulip, the brew appears a hazy light copper color with a frothy white head. A bit of webby lace sticks to the glass and a swirl revives a cap that displays some solid retention.

The aroma is herbal and rindy with hop character. Some suggestions of cheese quality mingle with hints of fruit. A little mineral filled towards the back as it opens up. Not bad smelling by any stretch but also not that great either.

The flavor is herbal and zesty with some rindy bitterness of hops and some cheese notes mingled with minerals and sulfuric components. There is lots of bitterness here from the hops and while its not over-done for the style, the flavors dont exactly combine to make anythibg terribly enjoyable either.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is an ok offering that I appreciate getting the chance to try. Unless this was offered to me uber fresh, I dont think i would bother having it again.

Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. Fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing. Aroma is a mix of grapefruit and citrus hops with some sweet caramel malts. Starts off with a mix of grapefruit and citrus hops with some bitterness and sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some light pine hops come through with some more bitterness and some biscuit malts. The finish is a mix of grapefruit and light pine hops, bitterness, and some sweet caramel and bready malts. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with dry and bitter finish. Very drinkable IPA with a nice hop profile and bitterness and great balance.

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.
