Very nice IPA that’s both easy to drink and flavorful. Nice amber color with some fluffy head and spotty lingering lacing. Smells of floral and pine hops. Tastes similarly, along with caramel, grain and hops. Not too bitter and very smooth, mild mouthfeel. Good amount of carbonation. Will plan to try more from this local brewery.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip. No freshness date.

L: Nearly clear golden copper pour with 2 fingers of fluffy white head. Great retention and lacing.

S: Pine and resin... caramel malts and evergreen.

T/F: Follows the nose... sweet caramel malts and toasty grains. Pine/evergreen forward hop profile. Slightly herbal and spicy. A bit of citrus rind. Good bitterness. Medium bodied... sticky on the tongue.

O: A classic West Coast style IPA. Tasty and drinkable... solid beer.

From tasting notes 03/03/18
Had on-tap at HopCat in Ann Arbor, MI

Appearance - Served up in a nonic pint, clear and copperish orange in color with an off-white, thin layer of suds covering the surface. Strong lacing that covers a lot of the glass in broken sheeting and small spotting where it finds space.

Smell - The aroma is mostly caramel and wood with a hint of citrus.

Taste - Follows the nose. Mostly balanced flavor profile upfront, with notes of citrus, wood and some caramel malt battling it out. Woody character wins out and turns bitter with twig like character, and it lingers strongly in the aftertaste with woody while a hint of citrus stays at bay.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with fair, tingly carbonation. Slick texture that quickly turns a bone dry and slightly harsh finish.

Overall - Decent IPA but not the smoothest or most inviting beer. Lots of woody bitterness. Not one I'd particularly seek out again.
