Ehhhhhhhh. Poured from can to tulip. Amber color, a few fingers of foam that dissolves to nothing. Have no idea what to say. It's okay. Not terrible, but nothing that stands out. Some earthy notes and some caramel malt, a touch of grapefruit zest on the finish.

I drank two of these straight from the bottle last weekend, so I wasn't able to see the color. Hands down, this is my favorite beer labeled as an IPA, probably because I'm not big into hoppy beers, and this one is lighter on the hops than most. The taste is very refreshing without being too citrusy.

Some of Fulton's other brews are great, but I was fairly underwhelmed with this offering. Not much in the way of hop character in comparison to some of their other stuff. Everything about this one was just mediocre, so I'm not going to go in depth. Okay at best for me.

from a bottle to a beer tulip (also on draft at Slippery's, Wabasha MN but reviewing the bottle
look; rusty amber caramel golden, 1" head with good retention, lacing and leaves a cover
smell; simcoe prevails but pepper and other spices, sugary caramel roasted malt, burnt pizza crust,
taste; the hops and spice lead off, caramel malt joins and stays to almost the finish, which is again a nice little kick of pine/grapefruit
feel; balanced carbonation, smooth and bitter
overall; I really liked this treatment of the hops and sweet bready malts, a big boy session ipa

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 oak bottle on July 29, 2016. Look is slightly hazy amber with an off-white head and lingering lacing. Smell is herb, pine, citrus and yeast with caramel and bread malt aromas. Taste is a reflection of the nose with the addition of orange and grain flavors. Feel is medium in body that is bitter but smooth and creamy in the finish.
