This ipa pours a hazy brownish amber color with a nice cream colored head that gives way to a thick off white film and lacing. The aroma is very hoppy with lots of resin and grassy notes. There is grapefruit and a little malt as well. The mouthfeel is very smooth with just the slightest coating. The flavor is very hop forward and refreshing. All the notes ffound in the nose make themselves present in the taste. This is a solid ipa; not the greatest, but damn good.

A little disappointing. Started off with nice golden color, decent head with nice lingering lacing. Smelled strongly of floral hops, a tiny bit sour. Tastes of both floral and citrus hops, mild bitterness with a little sour funkiness. Some hints of malt and caramel. Surprisingly thin mouthfeel with some very mild carbonation that faded slightly as the beer warmed. Overall, not a bad IPA but not as juicy as I normally like - and a little too sour. Bitterness was just right, though.

Bottle into tulip

Appearance - Pale orange, gold, about 1 finger white head.

Smell - Pungent pine, resin, grapefruit and slight pineapple.

Taste - Flavor of pine, grapefruit, good balance between bitter and tart. Slight ground pepper spiciness. Light malts with a subtle roastiness, dried out piny bitterness at the end that lingers as the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp, refreshing.

Overall - Good beer. With this brewed year round you can't go wrong trying it. Lots of hoppy character that is sure to grab your attention right off the bat.
