A: a hay orange in color, with a decent white head.

S: huge grapefruit, sweet orange peel, and tropical fruit with a touch of caramel.

T: orange peel and a touch of resin. Citrus bitterness, and a touch of caramel.

M: medium thick with moderate carbonation.

O: after hearing so many wonderful things about this brewery, this brew is kinda run of the mill. Not bad, just not outstanding either.

Served to me in draft in a pint glass, this beer draws a great, medium golden color with several streams of little
Bubbles fairly rapidly and continously rising to the beer's surface. Has a white head that's about about an inch thick when first served that settles eventually to a thick ring lining the inside of the glass along with some small cluster swirls of foam on the beer's surface. Aromas of some bready, slightly caramel malts and an herbal, floral, piney hop smell. Has a bready, slightly caramel and sweet, malt taste followed by a nice herbal, floral, and piney hip bitterness. The hops here so dominate the flavor profile a bit. Has a lightly crisp, smooth and frothy, slightly oily, medium bodies mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has a clean, dry finish and aftertaste. A very solid IPA here.

Pay no mind to the BA and Bro score on this one. I would have rated this beer the same, this time last year but the recipe was altered in 03-2017 and it is phenomenally better. Trust me, it is much better now than the past ratings credit it for, thus is why the individual ratings are quite good as of late. It is a hoppy, citrusy masterpiece. This west coast style India Pale Ale is now top 5 in the single IPA class among Ohio breweries, and Ohio has some phenomenal breweries when measuring up to other counterparts throughout the country.

The appearance had a super nice looking glazed over bronzed yellow to light orange color to it. A nice one finger white foamy head appeared and dissipated within about a good thirty seconds. The smell, wow, had a big punch of citrus to light spice to a light pininess. The taste was there and packed a super nice punch of citrus flavoring coating my tastebuds. There’s a nice spritzy to light citrus/pine aftertaste leading to a crisp and somewhat dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. The carbonation is good for the style and for me. Overall, I say this was a good AIPA that I would have again.

This is a wonderful citrusy IPA with just enough bitterness. It actually looks lighter than it tastes (deceiving and a wonderful surprise). I've heard of this brewer and was lucky to have a friend bring some back from OH.

12oz can purchased for $1.89 from local Heinens. 5/9/2017 stamped on bottom.

Clear straw-gold elixir poured into snifter yields a large, fluffy head which dissipates to a thick rim. Plenty of lacing.

Very fresh tropical fruit aroma, mostly pineapple, mango and kiwi. I don't get any pine or dank resin.

The taste is a mellow bitterness with tropical fruits now mixed and mingling with some pine, grapefruit and spice.

Well carbonated, a bit resinous with a lingering hop bitterness.

This is a nice change from the original recipe with very nice tropical fruit forward hops replacing some of the malt bill.
