Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Pint mug
From: My brother’s friend
Price: N/A
Purchased: July 26, 2014
Consumed: July 28, 2014
Misc.: N/A

Poured a honey, golden, semi-clear color with three fingers of frothy white head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Great foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Great retention on the top all the way down. Just a good-looking beer.

Smelled wet Cascade hops, pine, soap, citrus hops, floral hops and caramel malts.

Tasted wet pine hops, wet Cascade hops, slight resin hops, floral hops, citrus hops and caramel malts.

Light body. Creamy texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt, slightly bitter finish.

Really liked this IPA. Would have it again for sure.

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

A pale amber, cloudy bright orange and brass colored, with some lemon yellow hues. Slightly hazy, but makes with a thick rocking three finger off white head. Lots of swiss cheese bubbles and retention, with some bacteria and scattered like lacing. Looking kind of West coast here, very nice.

A real solid simple hop front. Hints of tea herbs and pine notes, maybe some decent tropical juiced goodness as well, but big aromatics. Juicy hinting and leafy green. Faint caramel malt notes in the background, and some brown sugar.

Palate comes as a bit of a shocker. Very wet bodied, with a watery finish. Bit chalky hop bitterness and minimal sweetness that doesn't carry through. Hop aromatics come to match a bit but with not as much depth hinting from the nose. Leafy tea action seems to hit more towards English style, and the bitterness while chalky isn't as large or pungent. Very fleeting finish as well.

Overall this looked real promising but while drinkable and seems to hint at something really good coming, it only ends up being more disappointing in the end.
