12 ounce bottle w/o freshness/bottleing date info.

Pours is clear almond amber, moderate lite tan head, goes to a meager film, thin collar and moderate lace left on the glass.

Bold nose of malts, vanilla, and maple with pine hops in the rear.

First, this beer is quite thick and full on the body/mouthfeel scale...more vanilla and bready malts, over a relatively minor hop presence. Has the feel and attitude of a barley wine, w/o the ABV.

Ehh, decent brew, but not really lovin it on a warm summers day. I like my AIPA's with more of a citric bite and a more zesty feel. Again, this feels more like a nice option for a cold winters day...

Had this @ the Brewpub on tap. One of their staple brews. I liked it. My only decent offering that evening. From the first sip this American-style India Pale Ale gets in your face with an unruly hop bitterness, big floral flavors and aroma, and just enough malt character to keep you from giving in and acting up.

Taste is of pine, toasted malt, and light citrus hop. The taste is somewhat sweet to start and builds up bitterness. There is a decent amount of hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Really surprised with how much I liked this. Will look for a six the next time I see it.

Poured into tulip; golden orange with a minimal fizzy white head that fades rather quickly into a layer of bubbles.
Smells of...nothing. Some flat grassyness. Probably an old bottle.
Taste is the same...standard faded IPA. Malt and bitterness. Definitely faded. As it warms a bit I can get some resiney citrus and bitterness but that's about it.
Mouthfeel is well-carbonated and medium, nice.
Overall I'd love to try this fresh. I picked it up because it used a hop variety I hadn't heard of, I definitely want to get one where you can taste the hops.

Copper body faint head barely white colored head. Even lacing, Aroma has pine and citrus notes big tropical fruit as it warms up a bit. Flavor has citrus zest and all kind of hop flavors mainly bitterness and a hint of malts. Mouthfeel is medium bodied dry all day kind of hop bitterness. Overall there's much better IPA out there folks.
