A nice IPA overall. But I actually might slightly prefer New Dogtown.

Pours straw colored soapy white head.

Smells nice enough but might like a bit more in the way of aroma.

Usual suspects on the palate. Citrus hops maybe some orange and pine.

Easy drinking on the palate. Finishes nice and dry.

From, the "unlimited release" 22 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on August 30, 2013.

It looks very nice in the glass with a sparkling medium amber, golden, and brass color that builds up to a huge puffy white head. That head fades but laces.

Vibrant hoppy aromas of earth and flowers along with an echo of biscuit malts introducing themselves quickly before being overcome by the hops.

Medium body that has a kind of pleasant creaminess to it.

Like the nose the taste has a bold floral hop flavor with much milder sweetness and malts that you really have to think about the catch. They are there though. A satisfactory IPA with a slight bitter bite on the backside.
