A: clear; bronze in color; 1 finger off white head that receded slowly to an uneven cap; nice lacing;

S: more sourness that anything else; a little caramel malt in the background;

T: unfortunately, it follows the nose; maybe a bad bottle?

M: a little thin; moderately carbonated;

O: no date, so no way of knowing how old this is; no hop aroma or flavor; with the sourness, I doubt I would try this again;

Updated:
Bought in July 2014 at brewery, tried it today December 18, 2014, over carbonated and overwhelming Brett sourness flavor. No sign of hops detected. Very disappointing! Maybe mine was the only defective infected bottle but I doubt that.

Poured beer out of the growler into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Nice citrus hops followed by caramel and bready malts.

Taste: Grapefruit and orange flavors balanced by the caramel and bready malts. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth, drinkable, medium bodied, medium carbonation, and easy to drink.

Overall: A nice IPA that I look forward to drinking more of from the brewery. Such a drinkable and enjoyable IPA.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a nonic tumbler. Pours a pretty clear golden copper color with 2.5 fingers of creamy white head, good retention and nice lacing. Fine looking brew.

Smells pretty citric hoppy. Lemon in particular. A bit of pale malt. Nice but not exciting.

Tastes good- very drinkable. Malts are pretty evenly balanced with the hops (for an IPA). Pale malt sweetness washes over the palate first, followed by a round hop-tang. Get more lemon towards the end and finishes relatively dry.

Mouthfeel is very nice- medium light body with light to moderate carbonation. Goes down pretty easy and very refreshing. Not bad for 4.49. Not the best IPA but good enough to drink for sure.
