Good, not great ipa. Slight bite at the end of a mouthful. A bit too carbonated for me

On tap: Poured into pint glass. Poured a clear copper/orange with a nice foamy cream colored head with nice retention. Smelled of citrus and hops. Tasted hoppy with a subtle sweetness (from the agave?). Light bodied with decent carbonation. A very enjoyable brew.

12oz bottle, tulip glass, no freshness dating.

Deep copper color capped with more than a finger of tawny, creamy foam.

Orange marmalade, pine, and a sweetness that might be agave.

More orange, pine, some dank, and a good dose of sweetness. It's on the malty side with hints of earthy, sweet agave. The bitterness is medium, citric, and helps offset the sweetness.

Thin to medium bodied, moderate carbonation, satisfying.

This is kind of a sleeper IPA to me. I'm curious how much the agave actually influences. It's pretty looking and pretty good, but I will never buy it again because there's no bottling date on it.

From the bottle, it pours a very slightly hazy amber with a modest head. The head soon diminishes to a thin layer and robust ring. Some hops in the nose. The mouth gets the same, slightly sweet as well.

Pours cloudy amber. Moderate lacing. Faint citrus and hoppy smell. Nice hoppy taste with subtle agave. Fills mouth nicely with moderate carbonation. Not my favorite but an enjoyable brew for a session.

An interesting twist on an IPA. Very nice aroma and flavor with good hoppiness. The agave flavor is very subtle.

A dark amber color is seen with a small head and some small particles floating around. The smell is heavy on the hops and citrus. The taste is very similar to the small with the added sweetness of agave. Overall, it's an easy-drinking, summer-type beer.

Pours a clear amber color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of spicy hops, sweet malt, tea, hint of caramel malt, and a hint of grass. Fits the style of an English IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of spicy hops, sweet malt, tea, hint of caramel malt, slight citrus, hint of alcohol, and a hint of grass. Overall, good appearance and blend, decent body, blend, and aroma.
