A - Pours a hazy copper with a one-finger white head. Nice amount of lacing.

S - I get a lot of floral hops and not much else.

T - Lots of sweet malt upfront. The middle has a nice amount of citrus. Finih has a nice hop bitterness.

M - Full bodied with medium bodied. Finish is dry.

O - Decent IPA. Flavorful and easy drinking.

Poured this from a bottle with a amber color with some lacing a small head. A mild smell of hops is noted, subtle hints of pine and citrus also present. Taste is very smooth with combined citrus and malt with follow up by a mild bitter. Overall, this beer felt very light and would definitely have again

Pours out to a thin white head with little lacing (could be a dirty glass?) and clear amber color. Aroma is hop forward with mostly piney-spicy hops and pale and crystal malts. Flavor is light, hoppy and has a light, clean malt backdrop with a clean finish. Mouthfeel is light. Overall, a good easy drinking and nearly sessionable IPA.

Notes from Pfister Hotel bar November 2013

Amber in color, small white head, sticky lacing around the top of the glass.

Aroma is fairly well balanced a little bit of malt and a little bit of hops. Nothing big coming out in the nose.

Malty body, slight hop taste, little bit of a bitter finish.

Medium mouthfeel, good carbonation.

An okay beer, more of an amber ale than an IPA. There are no aromas of hops, not hop flavor, and only a little hop finish. I like the balanced crisp taste of the beer but an IPA it is not.

Poured from bottle into glass. Dated 11/12/13. Drank 1/9/14.

A - Nice off-white/tan-ish head, attractive persistent lacing. Somewhat cloudy, more brown or amber in color than most IPAs. Beautiful.

S - Mildly hoppy smell, balanced out by faint but pleasant hints of malt? Not quite sure. Kind of subdued compared to the taste.

T - Begins with a wave of hoppy bitterness, then recedes into a more balanced and clean aftertaste. This might be too light for some people's preferences, but I prefer a more drinkable IPA like this.

M - Full, rich mouthfeel that coats the palette.

O - I am impressed that this beer can be so full in flavor, but finish so smoothly. With the current popularity of the IPA style there is a crowded market out there, but this one is done so tastefully that I think it's a solid representation of the style without going overboard. This would make a good introduction for someone unaccustomed to IPAs.
