3.6/5  rDev -5%

can. spiegelau ipa glass. brewed with orange peel.

(3.30) A: Dark orange, good clarity, rapid carbonation factor with a off white head that was initially 2 inches with a frumpy, bready texture. Fair rate of retention, sloppy dabs of lace, moderate coverage.

(3.30) S: Dry pine, dry orange, moderate strength nose.

(3.60) T: Flavor was caramelized dry orange peel, with a good level of dry hopping of pine and grapefruit peel. Malty depth, liquid bread body, lingering hops of grapefruit grind, spicy dry orange after the swallow.

(3.70) M: Bready mouthful, sticky malt, medium body with a good rate of carbonation.

(3.60) O: Overall good malt depth, good level of dry hopping, just not alot of hop flavor complexity. Good hop fix, just don't expect to be amazed or enthralled. Decent for a try, holds little incentive for recommendation or repeats.

12 oz. can poured into tumbler.

A- Gold, with some copper hues. Off-white head. One finger. Fairly dense. A little lacing.

S- Sweet malty aroma, caramel and bread. Hop aroma is up there too. Citrus, orange.

T- Pretty smooth light flavor. Citrus, and some bread notes.

M- Smooth. Sweet, not overwhelmingly bitter. The finish is semi-dry.

O- This one isn't bad. I actually have to say I like this better than the 113 IPA.

Servign Type - Can

Appearance - Dark tan, murky brown with a nice foamy 2 inch head, lots of lacing.

Smell - Danky hops, orange, a little pine. Some caramel malts and spices near the finish.

Taste - Much like the smell, some dank hops with some pine make up the most flavor. Some orange mixed with some lemon and some spices give it some flavor to a bland beer. Caramel malts come out some at the finish. Pretty much all that needs said about this beer.

Mouthfeel - Hops nail the tongue and bitter it up. Palate gets some spices and malts. Aftertaste is a little piney, bitter and warm.

Overall - Above average ipa from a above average brewery. Rather simple, easy to drink with just enough hop profile to enjoy. I can drink this again or I can never drink it again, im fine either way.

12 oz can poured into a pub-style pint glass.

Gold with 2 fingers of creamy, white head. Good head retention with excellent clarity and light carbonation.

Damp pine, dank greens, wintermint, and caramel.

Watermelon and wintermint. Damp pine, pineapple, orange marmalade, and dank greenery. Smooth honey malt backbone. Notes of grapefruit and orange zest bring in a decent bitterness.

Medium-light bodied, juicy, crisp, moderately bitter, and off-dry.

Great flavor profile. I dig it!
