Pours slightly hazed amber. A thin head leaves some spotted lacing.

The smell is very mild for an IPA - some floral notes and a hint of citrus - with some caramel.

The taste is of bitter grapefruit upfront with firm caramelized sourdough. The taste is stronger than the nose. Though not a "hop-bomb" of an IPA, there is certainly enough bitterness, which becomes aspirin/herbal to land it clearly in IPA territory. A firm caramel backing sweetens it out in the middle, but then backs off to allow a bitter finish.

It doesn't have the chewy, full body of a great IPA, but does the job more than adequately.

In the end it is flavorful and smooth enough to be a good, enjoyably bitter IPA.

Poured into a Bell's Tulip on 7/25/12

A) Clear, pale golden yellow of medium depth with burnt orange layers. One thumb head deflates quickly to a thin layer of small, tightly grouped bubbles. Some drippy lace remains.

S) Bright aroma with notes of orange, lemon, herbal hops and a touch of grass. Undertones of toasted grains and crackers. Orange and herbs prove to be the prominent aspect.

T) Quick, tangy hops bite at the front end - herbal tidings first, followed by bristly orange peel. Hops carry the finish with a lingering bitter notion. All the while malts are rather tame and get caught up in the hop kick and carbonation.

M) Speaking of carbonation, this is easily on the vigorous side of things. That said, the carbonation is more fluffy than pointed so it works with the flavor of the beer. Medium-light body and a crisp feel.

D) Despite not having one of my favorite hop profiles, this is pretty enjoyable and easy to drink. Not great, but good enough.

2.85/5  rDev -20.8%

Appearance: Burnt orange color to this brew. Light head on the pour and retained throughout. Low active carbonation active in the glass while drinking. Some random lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell: Forward front of very sweet caramel malt and some bright hops. The malt evens out in the body of the aroma and the hops seem to fall off. The aroma feels more like a malty APA to me.

Taste: The front is a very light malt presence with some watery hops. The body opens up a bit with some balanced hops and malt sweetness. The finish is very low on any kind of bitterness or hop presence.

Mouthfeel: Nothing too outstanding to report. Somewhat forgettable.

Overall: Nothing out of this beer makes me remember it. Lots of sweet malt, needs a strong hop presence to call itself an IPA.

3.85/5  rDev +6.9%

Appearance - Light amber. Clear. Short foamy off-white head with good retention.

Smell - Medium-light citrusy hops. Orange. A little sweet light malt.

Taste - Sweet light malt. A goodly dose of citrus and resin hops. Orange and pine, a little toast. Comes across as a little sweeter than most in this category, but the hops are sufficiently prominent. And it has a nice flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium.

Overall - I'm not a hophead, so the balance of this beer doesn't bother me. In fact, I probably enjoy the slightly more prominent sweetness. Goes down awfully smooth.

12oz bottle, no date. no idea what to expect with this one

clear golden straw color upon further inspection is laced with lots of fine sediment. smell is airy; grassy, a little boozy, with some skunky lemon. taste is hop-E and bit-TER, almost reminds me of smuttynose finestkind. some nice hop burps to be had.

glad i took a chance on this one.
