22oz into a tulip. Pours a hazy copper color w/ a 1-finger white head that leaves behind some spotty lace.
Aroma is a nice clean blend of grapefruit and pine. Smells like we have a classic West Coast IPA here.
Taste is dry biscuity pale malt and lots of citrusy NW hops. Tropical and juicy, more orange than grapefruit. Chinook, Citra, and Amarillo hops. Nice clean bitter finish.
Mouthfeel is clean and dry, drinkable and refreshing.
Overall a solid version of the American IPA. Reminds me a bit of Stone or Hopworks IPA.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a clear, golden amber with a one finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of Northwest piney and citrus hops, bready yeast and light tropical fruit. Flavor is stone and tropical fruit, citrus, pine and citrus hops with a great bready malt support. Finishes with a lingering grassy, citrus hop finish. Excellent creamy, medium body. A very well balanced, malty IPA with mellow, but flavorful hops. I wasn't in the mood for a hop bomb tonight and this hit the spot. The Manic Series has been quite solid for IPA goodness.

3.8/5 rDev -5.7%
A: pours a hazy orange with a finger of white head that fades into a frothy layer with good lacing.
S: lots of grapefruit with pineapple and orange dominate the nose.
T: grapefruit dominates here as well with some citrus rind and pine.
M: medium-light body with low carbonation, this beer is on cask so it's a bit watery. It works well, though.
O: a solid beer overall. Not terribly complex, but enjoyable.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a lightly hazy medium gold color with 1/2 inch of white head that had good retention and lacing.
The aroma was good, lots of pine hops with a bit of citrus. Not much malt showing through. On the tongue the flavor profile was pretty similar, lots of pine and the citrus had more of a presence, especially on the finish.
The body was good, just a bit fuller than typical, but not heavy at all. Drinkability was pretty good, as the only non-pumpkin beer on tap at a local bars recent pumpkin fest, the 3 of these I had as palate cleansers really hit the spot. Certainly worth trying if you see it.
