Pint poured at the taproom on Saturday, 6 September 2014.

Pours ruby, clear, with a beige head. Smell is surprisingly muted, but bright and hoppy. Very nice.

Taste has a surprising and pleasant caramel nature -- very piney. I might call this a red IPA or an Imperial Red Ale.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and dry. Overall excellent.

Poured on tap at Half Acre in a lovely 13oz goblet/tulip (?) pours a dark orange ambery orange with white foamy head with a slight reddish hue

Nose: candy caramel malt, orange, bright flowers, pineapple/papaya

Taste: orangey hop zest, subtle mint, muddled tropical fruits, bready malt with a soft nuttiness lingering (cashew seems very keen as Jason noted), some pine and tropic hop zest lingering

Feel: medium bodied, smooth, zesty, easy drinkin, fragrant

Wonderful IPA. Well balanced and delicious
