Deep copper body. Good clarity and a nice looking beige head. Lace is quite full. Aroma has a sweet toffee based malt background with a grassy and piney hop aroma on top. Flavorwise, year in and year out, this beer is about balance. Oh, it's an IPA all right, but it's really balanced out nicely with the toffeeish like malt tones. Hops are nice and grassy in this one. Just a bit of the cannabis like resemblance with the oily hop resin attributes, but also some definite pine and ctirus notes. Nice bitterness. Cutting bitterness without being overly jagged. Solid effort again and a beer to be used for celebrations for sure.

A - Poured a somewhat cloudy, deep amber color with a tan, foamy, one-finger head that left sticky patches of lace on the sides of the pint glass.

S - It smelled very floral and piney. Some strong citrus and orange peel aromas, too.

T - It tasted of grassy, spicy hops. A nice burnt toast maltiness added a strong sweet backbone. There were some subtle citrus flavors underneath it all.

M - It was crisp and sharp with a dry finish. A medium-bodied beer with a slight warming feel.

D - This is a very good IPA. Great balance of malt and hops.

Pours an amber brown color with a small head and nice lacing. NBice spicy hoppy aroma and flavor. Very bitter, not much in the way of malts, even though it's darker than their regular IPA. Plenty of pine and citrus, slightly spicy, lightly sweet and ever so dry on the finish. Good carbonation, crisp, definitely a hop attack on the tongue. If this were higher in ABV it would be an excellent DIPA. Another great Town Hall brew.

Clear crimson color, firm beige cap.

Spicy nose, as promised, citric undertones, as well as caramel malt delights.

Zestiness hits again in the taste. Citrus-y hops and fruity flavors match well with malt. Medium bodied. nicely textured. Long finish.

Juicy and bittersweet. I'm liking it more and more.
