A- copper/ slight amberish color. not transparent at all. had the slightest amount of head going but the brew alone looked good enough. what head i did have was white.

S- citrusy hops with some sweet caramel malt.

T- had a nice bitterness to it. pretty much citrusy hops with some caramel malt. pretty simple but good.

M- solid medium bodied. good carbonation.

Drinkability- wish i got a growler or had more but i was with the misses for the art fair.

Overall- i heard some bad stuff about this place but i had to check it out for myself. for being a total hophead their ipa i had was pretty good. also tried a sample of their hopicidal maniac (a special ipa) and to be honest it was weak. it had no malt backbone and the hops were weaker than their basic ipa. tasted like light hop water.

This was a half-decent brew, but it wasn't an IPA. It poured a nice coppery-brown without any head and slightly oily. The smell was slightly fruity but I didn't get any hops really at all. The taste was pretty good--a good malt/hop combo with a well-flavored finish. No crushing bitterness or anything like that. It had a solid medium body and was a very drinkable beer. Overall I wouldn't at all consider this an IPA because it didn't have enough distinct hop character, but it was still an enjoyable ale.

Pours light golden, clear, with a half finger head. Aroma of pine, pale malts, hay, a hint of citrus. Flavor follows rather one dimensional with a big focus on the bitter and little to back it up from the malt bill. Pine, dust, hay, not much else. Medium mouthfeel, a little dry, with plenty of carbonation. Decent, but a bit boring.
