Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance- The beer pours a beautiful golden amber color with a big billowy two finger off white head. The head fades over a moderate level of time leaving a nice lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The smell is largely of a bready and caramel nature mixed with some aromas of corn sweetness and a light fruit smell. While an IPA there is not a big hop presence with the aroma only having a very light citrus and pine hop smell.
Taste- The taste begins with a chewy breadiness and a lighter caramel sweetness upfront. A hop flavor of a citrus flavor is present from the start which grows stronger till the end. With the citrus growing stronger the caramel fades with some earthy and pine hop flavors later joining the taste. This combination of flavors take the taste to its end where a nicely hopped and smooth bready taste is left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel-The body of the brew is quite thick and chewy for a 6 % abv beer with a carbonation that is rather lighter. The thicker body combined with the lower carbonation make for a nice mouth coating feel and all the hop and bready flavors able to linger on the tongue.
Overall – I was quite surprised by this brew. It was nice and creamy with a rather good hoppy taste. Not a bad go to and certainly worth a try.

I'm burned out on hops, so I'm biased. Pours to a thin White head and copper color. Aroma is piney PNW hops and a bit of sweet caramel malt. Flavor picks up the same as the aroma. Not intensely bitter as is the standard for American craft IPAs but does have all the elements, the malty backbone, bitter, resiny bite and dry, tangy finish. Mouthfeel is light for style. not to IPA snob standards, but passes as an English IPA in my book and has that American hop twang. If there ever was a sessionable American IPA, this is it. Good call.
