look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but was released recently. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, honey, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately resinous/sticky, and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good IPA. All around good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and easy to drink. The centennial hop character was not as vibrant as I was expecting; but otherwise a nicely enjoyable offering.

I picked up a bottle of Hideout Brewing Company's Getaway IPA last week for $6.99 at The Lager Mill. This is the first time I've seen bottles from Hideout and I'm interested to check them out, so I thought I would start off with this IPA, so lets see how it goes. No Visible Bottling date, Batch 1, bottle 61 of 78. Poured from a brown 22oz bottle into a Imperial pint glass.

A- The label looks nice, it's got a nice look to it, but it's not the most eye catching. It poured a nice amber color that took on more of a brighter amber hue when held to the light with two fingers worth of creamy off white head that died down to a thin ring that stayed till the end and it left some spotty lacing behind. This is a good looking IPA, I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a slightly higher amount of medium sweetness with the hops being the first to show up and they impart a mixture of grassy, piney and citrus rind aromas with all the aspects showing up evenly. Up next comes a little bit of doughy yeast that leads right into the malts which imparts some nice caramel malt, sweet malt, brady and slight grainy aromas with the caramel malts really sticking out the most. This beer has a nice aroma, it's very balanced.

T- The taste seems to be similar to the aroma and it starts off with a medium amount of sweetness with the malts being the first to show up and they impart the same aspects that they did in the aroma with the caramel malts still sticking out the most and they seem to be the aspects that sticks out the most in this beer. Up next comes a slight bit of doughy yeast that leads right into the malts which impart the same mixture of grassy, piney and citrus rind aspects that it did in the aroma, but this time the grassy aspect is a little lighter and it's the piney hops that stick out the most. On the finish there's a slightly higher amount of medium bitterness with a caramel malt and piney hop aftertaste. This is a nice tasting IPA, it's got good balance.

M- Fairly smooth, a little creamy, not too crisp, on the slightly thicker side of being medium bodied with lower amount of medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is pretty nice and it's works well with this beer.

Overall I thought this was a nice beer and I thought it was a solid example of an IPA, it reminds me a lot of most of the IPA's that were around when I first started to get into craft beer, the malts make for a strong backbone and the piney hops work well with it. This beer has nice drinkability, it's fairly smooth, a little creamy, not too crisp, not too filling and the taste does a good job at holding my attention, I think one bottle is the perfect amount for me. What I like the most about this beer was the balance, it was nice and no aspect got too overpowering. What I like the least about this beer is that those citrus rind hops didn't show up more in the taste. I would buy this beer again, but it isn't something I'm going to buy a lot of. I would recommend this beer if your looking for more of a balanced IPA. All in all I liked this beer, i didn't love it, but it did bring me back to a time when IPA's were a lot more simpler and balanced and while i still prefer the heavily hopped fruit IPA's this is still nice to have every now and them, it's like revisiting the past. This isn't a favorite from this brewery or for the style. Nice job guys, this is a nice Old School style IPA, keep it up.
