Wasn't really as good as I expected it to be. Not bad by any means, however...

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

The pour was a cloudy medium copper orange with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that did have great retention, finally reducing to a large cap with some fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a light straw malt, pine and citrus hops and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of citrus (grapefruit) and caramel.

The taste was bitter sweet and mildly malty with hints of caramel and citrus from the start, with the finish having a nice hoppy pine ending. The flavor stuck around for an average duration after the swallow with a mild bitterness that faded slowly.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry oily texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall an IPA that had a nice malty feel to it, which did a great job of compensating for the bold and healthy hoppiness...

A pretty meh beer with lots of malt and not much of particularly inviting hop profile.

Thanks for sharing this one, Bobby.

A: The pour is orange-amber in color with a little bit more than a finger of off-white head.

S: Smells very green with a lot of pine, floral, and herbaceous, rosemary-like hop notes. There's still quite a lot of bread and malt on the nose and maybe a bit of a raw dough type thing as well.

T: The pine is quite strong on the tongue and provides a big bitterness. The same herbaceous and mildly woody character which is reminiscent of rosemary. A slight grapefruit note underneath it all along with the bread which underlies it all.

M: The body and carbonation are both medium.

D: Too herbal and woodsy without much of the citrus character that I find pleasing about an IPA.

This beer is over-rated by BA. It is certainly good/okay, but nothing to write home about. JK
