Poured one and a half bottles into an impy pint glass a hazed burnt orange color with a thick foamy white head that leaves a half ring of broken lace as it settles.Leafy hops dominate with a bit of orange marmalade in the nose,not in ur face hoppy.Great hop hop complexity on the palate ranging from grassy/herbal to ctric smash, a sweetish caramel base holds up to the hops.Wow Ianice IPA here with great complexity,a great midwestern IPA.

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.
