This is an in state brewer I have been meaning to try more of. Kind of more balanced than I expected with a malty base and briny and citrus hops as the finisher. Definitely pine in the aftertaste as well. A little something different in your IPA tool bucket I guess, which is always nice.

12 ounce drafts were the Happy Hour special at Birrotecha, so I figured what the heck..

My notes, in full "Like a solid midwest IPA from 2006. I mean that in a good way."

The pour was dark amber and filtered with a decent head. The flavor and aroma were pine and mild citrus. It was very flavorful without being at all overwhelming and I was surprised to see its ABV was as high as 6.8.

It's nothing groundbreaking. Indeed, it's a bit old-fashioned. But it's very well done, and frankly I prefer this style to most contemporary, fruit-heavy IPAs.

Had this on tap at Hurricane Hannas near Ocean City MD. A great IPA for hopheads, yet approachable enough for others!! pours a fairly clear amber color. White frothy head but I can't comment on head size since it was served in a chilled pint glass. Rings of lacing on the glass. Strong hoppy aroma, citrus all the way with grapefruit up front and some mango. Flavor is hoppy and citrus forward but there is fairly strong caramel malt to mute the hoppiness a bit. The finish includes some resiny piney hops. An impressive array of flavors but no simple hops blast to discourage those less enamored with head-shrinking bitterness. Mouthfeel is rich and crisp with some balance between hops and malt (with hops winning out). This is one of the better IPAs andI'm glad I was able to get a fresh one on tap!!!!
