Reviewed from notes.

A. Amber with orange hued highlights and a receding foam collar that leaves behind a solid singly orbital ring of lacing around the rim of the glass.

S. At first bottle crack there is a strong odor of mandarin oranges, medium strength aroma of peaches, pineapple, and caramel / toffee malt sweetness and it smells great !!! Unfortunately the entire citric / tropical fruit house of cards collapses and evaporates away after sitting in the glass for a minute or so, never to be smelled again... leaving behind a standard boring grapefruit pithy malt-forward IPA aroma. Enjoy the aroma as quickly as you can on this one, it dissipates fast.

T. Yup, it's a malt forward IPA all right. Chewy toffee with musty orange rinds on top and lighter amounts of grapefruit pith. Also has a sort of hard-water mineral-like flavor accent in there as well. Finish is lightly dry but only medium long.

M. Lighter side of medium thickness and aggressively spritzy in carbonation.

This beer temporarily flirts with greatness but pulls too many punches and doesn't take enough risks to really stick the landing IMHO.

A - Orange body with a light frothy head of white with very good stamina.

S - Excellent aroma combination of grapefruit, citrus and slight evergreen.

T - The flavors are not as well rounded and full as the aroma. The hops are a bitter and come in a bit late and then lingers long.

M - Watery with a mild coarse touch in the ending and then nothing much into the finish.

~ This is a decent IPA. I would recommend it to a friend seeing as the scent is really done well. It also makes for a decent session beer if you're looking for something with a nice hoppy kick.

My first beer from this brewery. Pours golden color with a lot of particulate matter getting tossed about by the carbonation bubbles. Two fingers of head forms and holds on quite well. Heavy lacing is left on the glass. I would of given this a higher appearance score if I had been warned about the yeast in the bottle.

Sort of a cleaning product aroma. Soapy, herbal, earthy, with slight pine qualities.

Taste is very bitter upfront. No mistaken the style with this beer. Again the soapy qualities come through. Malt is dry without adding much flavor. Lingering bitter aftertaste.

I liked the carbonation. Lively without being harsh. Enough to lift the hop bitterness off the tongue.

Not exactly the way I like the hops smelling or tasting. Nothing wrong but not to my tastes.
