I got a couple of bottles of this while assembling a “make your own” 6 pack.

12 oz brown longneck poured into a shaker, the beer is a chill hazed copper with a decent & clingy beige head.

I thought the beer had a decent amount of pine and citrus in the nose all backed with some cracker like malts.

The taste is pleasantly bitter with some resin and citrus notes. There are caramel malts for balance and just a hint of fresh apple. This seems to be to a solid take on an American IPA. While it is not super bitter, it is balanced for the style with a nice hop bite.

Mouth is decent and a bit coating. It has mid-range carbonation.

This is a very drinkable beer.

Dark, opaque copper color. Drinking out of a SAm Adams perfect pint glass. Creamy head and decent lacing. thick and malty. Not as bitter or hoppy as other IPAs. If I close my eyes I think I'm drink a dark Belgian ale. flavor and feel are what throw me on this IPA. I like the beer, but loses points in the IPA classification for me.

Pours a clear, maize color. 3/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of citrus hops, piney hops, sweet malt, hint of earthy malt, slight tea, and a hint of caramel malt. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, piney hops, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, slight caramel malt, hint of earthy malt, hint of tea, and a hint of yeast. Overall, good appearance, decent aroma, body, and blend.

Not much hop to this ipa. The alchohol is hidden well in the malt. Too sweet for me.
