Been looking forward to this one for a long time. Courtesy of glazeman.
A - Great looking IPA. Light burnt orange with a one finger head with little retention. Good lacing, particularly for a single IPA.
S - Citrus hops - oranges, lemon, and a hint of alcohol.
T - Pretty average tasting beer in my opinion. Oranges and apricots up front with a slight malt backbone. The malts are a little bit sugary, almost medicinal. Finishes quite bitter followed by a hint of nuttiness. The nutty finish became a bit more pronounced as the beer warmed. Letting this one warm up a bit is a good idea.
M - Decent mouthfeel - typical for an IPA. Good carbonation. Pretty thin, not too sticky.
D - Very drinkable beer. Not a whole lot of complexity going on with the smell or the taste. All in all, this is your typical IPA. But that being said, a typical IPA is better than what most people have in their mugs, so this is a beer I would try again if it's available. However, I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to seek it out.
