Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer was served a medium amber color with a tiny white head that fades fast to leave only a trace level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The smell was citrusy and sweet with aromas of a sweet tangerine and orange mixed with some smells of caramel. Along with these sweeter smells were aromas of a bitter grapefruit as well as a bit of a bready malt aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter flavor of caramel and sweet citrus of a tangerine and orange nature. Upfront there is a moderate amount of a grapefruit hop taste which gets stronger as the flavor advances further. Along with the hop ,so too comes more flavors of a bready nature, but these are always much lighter and less detectable then the citrus hop. At the very end a lighter amount of a pine hop flavor also joins the profile giving the brew a lightly sweetened, but decently hoppy flavor .
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. Both make for a very easy drinking brew, but also allow for the hop flavors to be picked up nicely by the tongue.
Overall – It was a good IPA, but nothing exceptional. Worth a try, but not really worth going out of your way for.

Poured into a small snifter. Pours a medium orange amber with a two finger off-white head with good retention and lacing. Great aroma of pine and citrus hops and sweet malt. Flavor is citrus and light piney hops with a very pleasant sweet malt base with estery fruit components; orange and stone fruits. Medium bodied. The hops are flavorful, but not as intense as the aroma. The tasty malt body really made this fun to drink. Pleasant bitter piney finish. A quite enjoyable American IPA.
