12oz Bottle into tumbler, bottled 11/14/11
The beer pours a clear amber/copper with a nice white head. Lookin’ good so far. The smell is surprisingly malty for an IPA with some nice biscuity/bready tones. At the end of the nose, some earthy pine-like tones emerge from the hops. Taste is deliciously hoppy and bitter with the mellowing malt coming in midway to chill things out. Hops are mainly citrusy with grapefruit tones. I’m really digging the maltiness of this (caramel) which almost leans it towards an English Style IPA but the hops bring it back across the pond. Ends with the nice clean IPA bitterness I’ve come to expect. After a few sips there is some very strong lacing coming from the ring that has replaced the head. Mouthfeel is medium weight with a certain hop oil presence and a mild alcohol presence.
An excellent IPA that stands out from the crowd with its DIPA strength malt, definitely something I’d pick up again. Only downside I can find is that the hops are a bit one dimensional.

3.83/5 rDev -0.5%

Had at Bar of Soap Asheville. Served in a pint glass.
A- Pours a light amber color with a 3/4 inch off-white head that retains well before settling at an 1/8 inch. Resilient thick sheet of lacing.
S- Sweet smelling hop aroma with plenty of fruit notes like orange and grapefruit. Slightly grassy.
T- Flavor is a bit more malt forward than expected but there's a decent balance between its sweetness and the bitterness of the hops. The bitterness is moderate and doesn't linger long. ABV is hidden pretty well.
M- A tad oily with medium carbonation and a lightish body.
O- I remember liking this more when I wasn't as into beer as I am today. Still a decent IPA that's plenty drinkable.

Served in a pint glass at Estelle's in Boston.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that is for the most part still there. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Super frothy lacing as the beer was drank.
Smell: Tangerine, grapefruit, floral bouquet, mango, passion fruit, grass, and a little pine with some caramel and toasted malts in the rear.
Taste: Same as above with some super mild tingly bitterness in the rear.
Mouthfeel: Easily drinkable, medium bodied, a little chewy, mild bitterness, and a bit smooth.
Overall: Draft or can. Irs all good. Wish the couple of times I've been to SF to see the Sox that I didn't walk by the brewery. Next time I promise

Poured into a cheater pint from the well crafted can.
A: Gold and hazy, some carbo with a thick rocky two finger head which goes on for days and then near the end settles into a thin disk of a few millimeters.
S: Juicy. Musty grapefruit. Some yeasty spices. White pepper.
T: This is where this beer is shining. Some musty, juicy grapefruit and that white pepper subside to a very gentle pale malt and some bready yeast. Very pleasing and well rounded flavors play and dance, it is not a wave that is predictable. It flits in and out with all these notes randomly.
M: smooth and creamy. That persistent rocky head said it would be this way! bittering is so well balanced that you almost think that it might just pop over to that overtly bitter note but it never ever does.
O: this just became a staple of moderate ABV in the canned selections when I can find it and it's not lawnmower beer time. Great juicy IPA.

Can art on the new run is quite amazing. An Adobe Illustrator-esque take on Mt. Rushmore with Lincoln popping out ready to punch someone. Ostensibly for trying to take away his right to drink. Anyway, I love this beer. What a good IPA should be, balanced with enough bite to know theres hops around, but not so toothy as to slash your tongue's throat. My first beer from 21stA, but certainly wont be my last.
