Based on my fairly unkind perception of Hop Nosh's expression back in 2015, I find it absolutely necessary to delete my old review and reevaluate now, as that opinion just does not apply anymore, largely in terms of my own palate, preferences and overall experiential evolution.

Lightly foggy orange-amber--just about as hazy as Hazy Nosh, ironically enough--with a moderately short off-white head leaving substantial but fluid lacing that falls back down to the surface in slo-mo.

A solid West Coast IPA with plenty of citrus and pine working in concert, it's quite a bit more bitter and dank than their hazy, obviously, but without all that limey juiciness, instead exhibiting some catty hints in the exhale. However, it's quite clean up front, and stunningly reminds me of the sort of prickly resins often found in Fat Head's stellar IPA program, although paired with a lesser hint of dampening graham.

The moderate body has a gently expanding carbonation and finishes just dry.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Sixpoint can glass

the beer pours a murky light copper color with a ton of floaties. Kind of surprised after reading so many reviews describing the color as a clear copper color... about three fingers worth of rocky white head with substantial lacing.

Lots of citrus fruits in the aroma, as well as some pineapple, mango, and papaya. Mildly bready and earthy malts balance out the hopiness.

Like the aroma the flavor is orange, papaya, mango, with a nice bready, toasty malt character. Great balance. Medium bodied and slick on the tounge. A bit heavier than most IPA's, definitely a well balanced beer more in line with the east coast IPA style, but with the big citrusy hop punch of a west coast IPA

Overall, a very good beer that I would would be happy to see on tap or on the shelf.

12 oz can pours a clear copper color with a average off white head of large bubbles, leaves some lacing in my glass. Fresh grapefruit and pine aromas, hoppy citrus and pine flavors. Medium bodied with a soft and creamy mouthfeel, finishes dry.

Clear amber appearance with a large, off white head and good lacing. Appealing aroma of pine and citrus. Hop flavors are a bit more mellow than anticipated; more floral and herbal. Modest sweetness, but bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with an average length finish.

Pours a lovely golden bronze color with an off white head. Smell is malt and citrus hops. Taste has floral and orange / grapefruit hops some pine resin and a sweet malt kiss. This is an IPA that is the way it used to be. Bitter hoppy malty.

Ok folk's !!! I do not do alot of reviews on this site any more due to my general lack of enthusiasm with the hype of the Hazy IPA craze !!! Tropical this, melon that, no malt just hops and yeast and quite frankly it is extremely boring too say the least. There is no such thing as balance anymore. BORING !!!!

This is an old school IPA that is not geared for the hipster IPA scene. It has plenty of hop aroma and flavor that when paired with the selection of rich malts creates an exceptionally balanced brew. Yes I get it !!! Most younger folks will not appreciate this balance but I actually miss this style of an IPA !!! An IPA is supposed to be balanced !!!! Nowday's brewery's can just throw hops in a hop back with a tinge of pale malts and become an overnight success. Zero balance and flavor nuances.

I give this brew two thumb's up because of the overall balance of malt and hops. This is what and IPA should taste like. I am bored to tears with the current IPA offerings from brewery's. No thought or balance just hops. I have zero respect for the brewmasters / breweries.

Pours a sunburst orange with a lighter orange/yellow at the top. Slightly murky tint to it. Head is a finger of snowy white foam with modestly good retention. Aroma is tangerine, papaya, orange, mango, resiny and dank hops. Light bready, earthy malts add a bit of balance and 'boniness' to the back-end of the aroma. It's a pleasant contrast to the initial hops. Flavor profile is orange, papaya, tangerine, mango, resiny, herbal and dank hops with bready, earthy, toasty malts. Balance is great, with the hops out front and sticking to the tongue long after the sip. Mouth feel is lightly sticky with a light graininess to it. It has a medium to medium-thick consistency offering up a 'heavier' presence. Overall, hops are great and are contrasted well by malts; however, the focus remains wholly on the hops.

Served in a 15.5oz Speigalau tulip from a 12oz bottle.

Appearance: Pours a deep orange, dark peachy color. A white and lacy head. SRM of 13. (3.75)

Aroma: Dank resinous melon, lime, pineapple, and red grape. A touch of vanilla yogurt with berries. (3.75)

Flavor: Lots of lime, red grape and grapefruit. Maybe a touch of lychee and an almost plastic or medicinal quality. Finishes with rich caramel malts, yet a fairly strong bitter finish. A unique flavor, but also reminiscent of some of the first IPAs I've tried. (4.00)

Feel: Medium-bodied, Average carbonation. Lingering bitter pine and pith which is appropriate. Right in line with what an IPA should be. (4.00)

Overall: Definitely a good IPA. Takes the IPA back to it's origins in terms of a hop profile. Reminds me of some of the first IPAs I tried. On par with what a good IPA should be. Nothing extraordinary, but a good rating for being traditional and accurate to it's origins. (Final Rating: 3.98)

Palate Contaminants: none

Color is a medium orange. Slightly murky. Moderate amount of fine head that doesn't hang around so long.

Lots of malt on the nose, but the grain evokes a wheat brew. The sweetness also contributes to a marmalade scent. Light bits of vegetation, specifically cilantro and moss. Overall, it could use some more intensity, though.

Bitterness up front right away, and too much of it. The moss is still there, but the sweetness and anything connected to it is buried. The bitterness even disconnects the malt from any sweetness, which actually makes the whole thing not so cohesive. Not that it's not palatable, there are just so many other good IPAs out there.

Good medium weight, and the carbonation is pretty smooth. Alcohol about par for a sevener. Bitterness just continues in the aftertaste.

Some of us get a soap odor and flavor that doesn't do it any favors. Its harshly bitter at points without too much nuance overall. It is serviceable, and would go well with a slice or two.
