Growler from Jacksons. At first taste, was bowled over by citrus hops, however that quickly turned into a somewhat metallic, astringent finish. Medium golden body with foamy head. Aroma is grapefruit, malt, yeast. Taste hits up front with hops, and finishes dry and tinny.

First beer from this brewery. It is very drinkable but nothing to seek out . Won't buy again. Like to try others from them for comparison

A: slight haze; medium gold in color; 1 finger ivory head that receded to a thin cap; very nice lacing;

S: not very assertive; citrus, a little spice, a little pine;

T: earthy and floral for a moment, then pine kicks in quickly and stays through the finish; moderate bitterness at the end;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; dry finish;

O: really nice flavors; wish the aroma was more assertive;

Pours a hazy light copper color with a moderate-sized white head. Decent lacing on the side of the glass.

Aroma is pretty crisp with strong citrus fruit notes and a bit of a piney finish.

Has a pretty nice malt backbone to go along with a pretty good hop presence. Strong bitter citrus pull at the back of the palate. There is also a nice piney aftertaste. A pretty flavorful and hop-filled taste.

Moderate carbonation with quite a bit of hop/citrus sting.

Overall, this is a pretty nice IPA. A strong hop presence combined with a decent malt backbone makes for a pretty balanced beer. Nothing earth shattering here, but this is a pretty well-crafted and enjoyable brew.

Unfiltered. Hazy pale gold. Hope resin flavor comes on quick. Perfect carbonation. Goes down smooth with a crisp quick finish. Lingers pleasant hints of pine.
