3.85/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a Firestone Walker Pub glass and served in the low 50 F range.

A: Light and clear copper hue. White frothy head that descends into a thin layer foam a few minutes after the initial pour. One note: Hazy appearance when poured at the brewery itself. Decided to cold crash and seemed to clear out the beer.

S: Mild hints of pine and grass with some biscuit malt backbone. Reminds me of an Alesmith or Taps like IPA....at least in approach.

T: Very well balanced. No significant or stand out flavors. This particular beers signature feature is its clean flavor profile.

M: Typical; slightly dry and light to medium body.

O: A good beer; true to style. Beers like this make this an up and coming brewery. Keep up the good work Evan!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

22 oz bottle poured into snifter dated 5/25

A: nice soapy head with a beautiful clear amber color in the glass

S: lots of sharp citrus and pineapple, papaya a little bit of lemon zest and some cracker like malts

T: lots of malts but a good dose of that touches of malt papaya and pineapple very nice and slightly dry not crazy sweet but just a touch

M: light crisp easy to drink dry though interesting carbonation is there but smooth

O: At being over two months old this beer is very very good. I don't know if it is the water or what but try kill at making IPAs they are huge fruity and so clean on the tongue. This beer is still fantastic.
