3.25/5  rDev -14.2%

Consumed directly from the bottle at Camp Treetops Friends' Weekend 2014 in Lake Placid, NY.

A: A small pour into a clear plastic punch glass shows an amber beer with a short cap of off-white head. (3.5)

S: Aroma is heavier than it should be with caramel malts, medium crystal in character, with pine and citrus hops that don't quite dominate in the aroma like hops should in this style. (3.25)

T: Flavor is fine but still fairly light-to-medium crystal malt heavy with a lot of toffee and light caramel with the nice bready maltiness. The hoppiness is not as assertive as it should be and falls in the light-to-moderate bitterness with some pine and orange and grapefruit citrus along with floral notes. Less caramel malts and heavier late and dry hopping would elevate this beer. No yeast or alcohol notes. (3.25)

M: Not as dry as it should be with medium body and moderate carbonation. (3.25)

O: Not a great but a middle of the road at most American IPA that treads toward English styling. (3.25)

A- pours a clear bright golden color with a bit of sediment floating around, small fizzy white head disappears completely, leaving nothing behind 3.5

S- citrusy orange hop aroma with notes of fresh grass and cracked pepper, clean malt bill allows the hops to shine 3.75

T- citrusy hop flavor follows the aroma with an emphasis on orange zest, grassy and minty mid-palate, slightly bready malt leads to a clean finish 3.75

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish 3.5

O- nice citrusy notes with a clean finish 3.75

This brew pours a golden/copper color with a 1.5 finger white head with good carbonation and light lacing on the glass.

The smell is pine and grapefruit wit a little melon. There is also the light smell of roasted malts lurking in the back ground.

The taste follows the nose with the grapefruit dominating then the melon with a little malt and pine in the background. Some hop oil is left on the tongue after swallowing.

Overall this brew has potential but it does not impress me like other IPA's I have had. It is just kind of bland and so-so; it might make a good session IPA.

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.
