Appearance: Pours a very slightly cloudy light amber with 1.5 inches of off white creamy head.

Smell: Some floral in with a heavy dose of hop.

Taste: Almost perfect balance of hops and malt for an ipa. Some citrus but it is subtle.

Feel: Carbonation is good. A little dry.

Overall: A very good ipa. I would buy it again.

Pours a semi clear orange with soft white head.

Smell is piney with good amounts of citrus and resin.

Taste is as piney as the nose, with just a little hint of booze and a sturdy bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium, feels somewhat undercarbonated.

Overall, a solid IPA in the West Coast tradition.

A nice pour of light golden ale along with light head and an aroma of light pine with a bit of bread yeast. It's a straight IPA profile, west coast style, with a citrus overlay on a solid malt backbone. We found this to be a good offering and will pick up a sixer again in the near future.

Can to nonic pint glass. The appearance was a hazy amber to orange color with a one finger white head. It quickly dissipates to leave light lacing roaming around in a mess sort of way. The smell started off with a crisp pine to lead into some tropical fruits, caramel malt, and then light honey. The taste was mildly sweet with light bitterness from the pine to stroll in to balance. There’s no aftertaste but it had a crisp sweet to bitter pine finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionable oily texture. Overall, its a good AIPA that I could come back to.
