On tap at the brewery's taproom/restaurant. Nice dark copper color, with a fluffy white head. Good retention and lacing. Nice piney aroma, with a touch of grainy malt sweetness in the nose. The flavor had an equal mix of piney bitterness and flowery hoppiness, with a nice sweet backbone. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, with nice carbonation. Overall, pretty tasty.

a much more inspired (and inspiring) offering than the bad phil pale ale, which really underwhelmed me. this is a rather robust american ipa with a good mix of hops flavor intensity and bitterness to finish it up. a pale copper color, frothy as they come, excited carbonation and a lot lacy head with awesome retention. smells prominently hoppy, pine family stuff, alpha acids and not shy on the dosage. grain is fresh but sturdy, not quite balanced like the english ones, but it definitely is a big enough base to support all these hops. more bitter in taste than the nose indicates, mostly in the finish, which sort of cleans up the sappy pine middle. i love all the bubbles on it, thats what makes it. its so refreshing for a strong and dense ipa because of the feel, and when its ice cold it makes an excellent summer ipa. all around tasty, and the best of the there barrel stuff so far for me.

From a 355 ml bottle (no date) to a tulip.

A-This is a nice looking beer (especially compared to the hazy beer trend). The light amber liquid is perfectly clear in the glass. On top is two-ish fingers of off-white head. The foam is dense and retention is pretty good. A bit of lacing is left on the glass.

S-The aroma is sorta simple, but pleasant. I sniff quite a bit of pine, some grapefruit, and lime. The beer's bitterness is matched nicely by flavors of caramel and honey. This thing has some malty sweetness and it trends closer to an English-style IPA than many beer drinkers might prefer, but I'm digging it.

T-The taste tracks closely to the smell. Mildly bitter pine flavors mingle with grapefruit and lime. Some floral notes linger too. The finish is on the sweet side for the style, but the caramel does a nice job of balancing the hops on the long finish.

M-The beer drinks easily with a mild amount of carbonation. While the flavors are a little earthy, the beer finishes clean with virtually no hop residue.

O-I can't say this beer will set any worlds on fire, but I would happily sit down and drink a pair of these in an evening. Nice balance and drinkability. If you're looking for a well-done IPA that is off the beaten path, this beer is a good option.

Pour is a deep orange-red, moderately hazy. One-finger white, thick foam. Aroma of piney hops, lemony. Taste of lemon, apricot, just a touch bitter. Full-bodied, smooth mouthfeel with a bite to the finish. First for me from these guys, and I like it.

Great clarity for an IPA. Smooth and light smell, taste and feel. Easy to drink. Not sure it fits in the IPA class. Great tasting beer tho.
