4.57/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a clear golden amber with a decent head.
Smell is very floral, it's essentially just hops but its nice.
Taste is lots of floral hop with a decent citrus like malt and burn taste. It's very pleasant actually
Mouthfeel is a bit carbonated, medium bodied.
Overall, really nice IPA. Both beers I've had today are from my home state, and it pleases me greatly.

bottled 5/16/16 and enjoyed on 6/1/16

pours clear golden amber with a thick head.

smell is absolutely amazing. clean sweet juicy hops. so pure, one of the best beers i have ever smelled.

the taste is outstanding. super bitter yet very fruity. lots of hops to this. taste is oddly similar to Stone's Enjoy By. finishes with a touch of sweetness and lingering bitterness.

so glad i was able to pick this up. a truly great IPA. one of the best beers i've ever had. this beer was bottled about 16 days ago, so damn good.

Pours a nice light amber color, aroma of grapefruit, pineapple, slight pine, and malt. Taste is very hop forward like I prefer, citrusy, slightly malty, and a resin aftertaste which is fabulous. I like It. Keep up the good work, this beer is in my top 5, Thanks. After tating this beer for a few more months,... I have put it at the top of my list,... I have rated it higher than any other beer, the aroma, taste, it always is fresh. Thanks.

2 weeks old in the bottle.

It took me a 2 of these before I could place the aroma and flavor. This beer reminds me so much of Port Wipeout that it isn't even funny. Light, smooth, and ultra aromatic. That said, its delicious if you can get it fresh (if you can't, pass and get something else). If you can get it fresh, try it closer to room temp. I tried one ice cold and wasn't impressed. One that had been out of the fridge for a bit was so much more expressive. Glad I picked up some extras to share with friends.

Had on tap. Pours clear, bright yellow in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is wet hops, big pine, and a nice dose of lemon. Very tasty first brew from this brewery. Has me curious to try other brews from them.
