A = best looking IPA I've seen. Beautiful clear copper with 3 finger super head. Excellent retention. For and American IPA, this is a perfect appearance.

Smell - Somewhat malty for an IPA and a nice combo of citrus and pine notes. Somewhat subdued.

Taste - Very nice IPA. Sweet flavorful and hoppy but very little bitterness in aftertaste. Very great.

Mouthfeel - Creamy and pleasant. Very buttery on the toungue.

Overall - Definitely one of the best American IPA's I've had to date. Its on the upper treshold of standard IPA without straying into Imperial/Double territory but its really a good one.

Had this beer a couple years back out of the bottle but found myself on the east coast for business trip and found it on draft there. (which is strange I know) Anyway I really missed this beer. A nice sweeter style IPA that is very drinkable.

Not a BIG NW style IPA with a huge nose but rather a softer, sweeter IPA with enough bitterness to balance things out. There were several other great beers on tap at this location but I found myself really enjoying this beer and it turned into my beer for the night.

12oz bottle I picked up for $1.69. Bright orange, very clear. Good sticky lacing on the glass. Smell is a little too subtle for me, slight hops, eh. A bit of orange in the flavor and then bitterness then some malt at the end. Overall this is a good IPA but nothing too crazy.

From a growler from Oliver's Beverage, poured into a tulip.

Dark golden, nice head forms. Some lacing too.

Aroma of pine and floral hops.

Flavor is mostly floral hops and a decent amount of orange/grapefruit notes. Not bitter. Light cracker-y malt backbone. Flavor is certainly hop-forward, but it's not exactly assertive.

Mouthfeel is medium and a bit creamy in the finish.

Overall this is a really easy-drinking, hop-forward beer--you could drink this all night. But it's not bold, by any means.
