I like the Tommyknocker Pick Axe...it's a decent EPA. The beer poured a hazy golden color with white head that is leaving a nice lacing. The scent is not robust...there is a fresh bitter hop nose. The taste is a nice balanced beer...it is not to bitter and not too sweet. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall the beer is good and I would have this beer again....nice job!

A: Pours a tall off-white head, 3 fingers. Slightly cloudy dark amber

S: Smell of hops and citrus

T: Unique IPA flavor I have not had before, quite nice. Smooth, yet very flavorful. Very pleasant IPA.

M: Medium-high carbonation, very smooth and creamy feel

O: One of the best IPA's I've had. Has a unique flavor that really works. If you don't like supper hoppy overpowering IPA's this one's for you.

Poured unto a nonic glass.

Appearance: Pours a semi-cloudy amber. Head comes off a thin white roughly 1/4" off the body.

Smell: Comes off citrusy but not over-done. Feel of hops is there.

Taste: Comes off a light-light caramel, comes off creamy not in texture but taste (some people confuse the difference).

Mouth: Light-medium cabonation but textir and flavor just hug your mouth.

Overall: A pale ale that is easy to like. Slightly bitter but yet "sweet". Incredibly smooth and easy to take a few in a row, I hope you all enjoy and please drink with love...Cheers!
