12 ounce bottle from the 12 bottle box.

1-6-14 etched onto the bottle, bottling date?

Pours heavily hazed lighter and yellowy . Frothy off white head, stays nicely, before leaving plenty of thicker and high on the glass lace.

Lemon, ginger and citrus on the nose.

More of the same on the tongue and around the mouth. Hops are kinda dull tasting and mostly just bittering. Not getting much floral or citric notes. All in all a decent if not awe inspiring AIPA. Worth a try but dont expect fireworks

Clear gold with a sticky white head that hangs around until I'm done. Piney whiff out of the bottle but the lupulins settle down once they're in the glass. Camomile ginger aroma. A little bit of pine sap and grapefruit flavor but not nearly enough. Timid, lingering bitter.

Just not hoppy enough for an American IPA. It did help me crush my mom in Scrabble though.

A- Poured from the 12oz bottle to a large-bulbed tulip with a hazy, golden body with some light orange hues as well. Large white cap forms to several fingers high with a thick, creamy texture. The frothy pillow has good retention. Lace beings with thick webs at the top followed by more thick sheets below that.

S- Hop pungency stronger than the other two I have reviewed so far (White and Black Rye IPAs). Tropical fruits come to mind immediately with herbal, floral and citrus qualities from the hops as well. Clean yeast and minimal malts.

T- Hops follow from the aroma with juicy tropical fruit really opening up. Mango and tangerine come to mind leading the way for other hop notes like lemon zest, spicy herbs and floral hints. Resiny bitterness coats the palate. Slightly dank feel. Minimal yeast and malt presences.

MF- Crisp, light end body overall with moderately high carbonation. The texture is fairly creamy and somewhat foamy. Moderate bitterness lingers on the taste buds.

Packs a decent bit more bitterness and comes through with a deeper tropical fruit feel than the others in the mixed pack. Solid, clean IPA that I would certainly have again but then again there is Limbo!

Light amber color with the faintest hazes. Some spotty-to-blankety lace on the glass. Modest starting head.

Pine-like hop aroma. Overall, mild smells, but the pale malt is definitely in the background.

Little to no malt base. The hop jumps in quickly and stays around throughout the tasting, but the aftertaste is surprisingly brief. Interestingly, I detect some alcohol warmth. Initially, I was thinking this was another session style beer because of the muted tasted, but the warming aspects tell me otherwise. Spritzy and bubbly for the style. Neutral body.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, slightly hazed, golden coloring with some sediment and a good flow of carbonation throughout. Clingy, filmy, bright white head that coats the surface and coats the glass. Aromas of pine resin, subtle caramel backbone, pine tassels, and a ribbon of subtle citrus sweetness. Flavors are very bitter on the forward tongue, with a pine and grass blend of green and pepper spice. Caramel backbone, with tangy citrus sweet throughout. Pretty well balanced, with a lean towards the roasted notes and pepper spice. Very bitter, resiny aftertaste. The body is thin and slightly effervescent, leading to a dry, bitter finish. Robust flavors on a drinkable body.
