Had this on draft at Flip Side in Chagrin Falls recently. Served to me in a snifter, this beer draws a clear, medium amber color with a white, foamy head that's about 1-2 to 2/3 of an inch thick when first served. Eventually settles to a thin white ring lining the inside of the glass along with good lacing. Aromas of caramel malt sweetness along some peninsula and citrusy hops. Flavors of biscuity caramel malt sweetness upfront that gives way to a nice piney, earthy, slightly citrusy hop bitterness with a nice spice note too. Good balance of flavors. Has a crisp, smooth, slightly prickly medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbination. Easy to drink in a good way.

This poured a pale golden straw color with a little haze. Decent head with not much retention and no lacing. The aroma was understated but promising. The taste felt light and unbalanced in my mouth with a thin carbonated body and not-very-well-hidden alcohol. A drinkable and not un enjoyable beer but not something I would buy regularly.

definitely better than its ratings, this is the first beer i have had from these guys. its almost a double ipa in its alcohol content and its showing of it. my bottle says 7.6% abv, rather than the 8% abv listed here. a little warm in the nose and a little sting in the finish to go with the west coast style hopping, honey oily hop character, and fizzy carbonation, a real interesting combination all up. i really dig the hop nose and flavor of this, its intense, almost spicy, wild hops almost, not quite peppery, but more zesty than grassy european hops, and absolutely more oily. sessionability is limited by alcohol content only, as the flavor is almost delicate for how big this is, and the mouthfeel is pretty easy down with its apparent lightness due to high carbonation. light fruity notes to finish and no decipherable yeast contribution to flavor. nice beer overall, a good introduction to this brewery, which looks like it does some pretty neat beers. thanks to a new buddy for sharing this one from his travels.
