Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Cloudy golden amber pour. Massive fluffy white head. Great retention and lacing.

S: Caramel malts and toasted grains. Citrus and pine hops.

T/F: Follows the nose. Sweet grains to start... slightly earthy.. citrus rind and evergreen hops. Floral/medicinal. Medium bodied... oily/slick on the tongue.

O: An above average old-school feel IPA. More west coast than east... good flavor and drinkability. Nothing exciting but very solid.

Excellent out of the bottle or in a glass. Smooth a little malty and citrusy no bitter aftertaste.

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.
