Good IPA, but there is so much out there better... at the same price.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Amber with a very thin white head, no lacing on the glass.

Smell: Pleasant mild hops, citrus notes.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of hops/pine notes with sweeter citrus notes.

Overall: Very good IPA!

Another from the mixed sixpack composed at Orlando Whole Foods on a Florida trip

a: Clear dark gold, finger thick white head receded to thick surface foam and dense lacing

s: Mild resin

t: Hefty biscuit malt with moderate pine hop bite. Dry finish

m: Medium, good carbonation tingle.

o: A substantial IPA, obvious quality. The hops give it a bit more punch than their fine Fat Tire Amber.

Reminds me of a dogfish head 60 minute IPA but a bit sweeter and lighter.

Looks how it's supposed to, amber color with a smallish head. Surprisingly sweet nose, malt, candy, and also a bunch of fruit. Maybe some cookies. Flavor is similarly sweet; lots of fruitiness. Hop bitterness is there, although fairly subtle. Well balanced. Overall a nice, very drinkable IPA.
