DATE TASTED: November 15, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint.. OCCASION: recovering from the family football game--I threw three INTs!--and a much less enjoyable Browns loss... APPEARANCE: rather light. bronze/copper body that shows reasonable effervescence; nearly clear; slight, fuzzy off-white head that holds to a swampy halo ... AROMA: resinous first impression; pear, wheat grass, some citrus, and melon; very little malts to speak of.... PALATE: fizzy, light and lively at the teeth; short at the finish, with a muted, astringent mouthfeel; medium-bodied and drinkable... TASTE: the resin is clear, mingling with citrus like grapefruit and orange peel...the maltiness presents itself more in the taste than in the nostril or palate; a reasonable sourness ensues... OVERALL: aptly named, ably fulfilling its hoppy promise, with a serviceable 6.2 ABV and a pleasant if not unmemorable profile...

11/5...brewery draft. Pours copper colored, ring foam. Mostly see through. Grassy pine nose, but light. Bready toffee taste with a tasty bitter tilted in between. Medium finish with a little bitter remaining afterwards. really drinkable and tasty.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass. Sharp cheddar and blue cheese on the side with peanuts and pretzels. Hoppy Trails has a red-amber color with two finger head. Nice lacing down the glass. The aroma has mostly bitter pine, almost no malt. Taste is pine-citrus up front, strong malt, and strong bitterness. Slightly heavy in body but a clean bitter finish. Very good IPA, definitely worth a try. I wish they would be more available, they are never at any bars in the area.

I'm not as crazy about this IPA as I am about the Outta Focus. It's hoppier than I tend to like and it's kind of bitter on the aftertaste, but it's not awful.
