Pours a clear copper with a moderate head. Aroma is malty with dank/herbal hops. Taste is malt forward, butterscotch bittering with wet/dank hops. Tastes like a midwest IPA. I am guessing this utilizes the British style of yeast due to its caramel/butterscotch notes. A little too malty for my tastes but each to his own.

Not a bad airport beer.

L: A copper amber. Pours with a two finger head. Some lacing.

S: Hops. Citrus and pine.

T: Quite hoppy. Unbalanced.

F: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: A good sipper while waiting for the airplane at LAX.

Pours a crystal clear orange amber with a thick firm head. Initially outstanding looking but head fades rather fast. Still, good looking.

Nose is muted fresh pineapple with lemon mousse tones. Pleasant and true to style but a little diluted in assertiveness.

Mouthfeel is medium/light in that there is a light diluted character again. Hints of "watered down" mouthfeel but not bad; still somewhat inviting.

Taste is light diluted bitter pine. Somewhat true to style but flavors are a bit simple and thin.

Finish is a long lasting dull pine bitter.

This is not bad beer; it is just not exceptional either. A bit more of a bright character and this could have some real potential to appeal.
