Notes / Commercial Description:
Voraciously hoppy and not overly bitter. The Kind brings enormous aroma and maximum flavor. It's like taking a walk through a pine forest and ending up at a citrus farm. This beer brings joy to the world, one sip at a time.

Served on tap at the Lovin' Cup at the Rocheseter Brew Fest on 1/14/12, reviewed from notes

A-Hazy yellow, pretty opaque, looks nice

S-Great hop, I get some grapefruit and pine, really good depth to this one

T-Really good, it has an excellent balance between the hoppiness and the taste on the back end which has definitely left a pleasant citrus and pine

M-Also very good, again this just about right not too thick or thin

O-Glad I tried this, if you can find it, I would heartily recommend it

Poured in to Duvel tulip glass.

A - Hazy orange/yellow colour with half a finger of white head that quickly disappeared.

S - Grapefruit, pine, sweet caramel. Nice bitterness evident with a decent malt backbone.

T - Bitter citrus and piney hops. A slight caramel malt backbone is present as well but this is definitely a west coast style IPA.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation.

On tap in a pint glass.

A-Light golen color, slight haze, minimal white head on this pour that faded to a thin film and left heavy rings of lacing. It comes in as a lighter looking brew than a typical IPA, but holds up with great lacing and an inviting 'drink-up' look.

S- Big strong hop aroma, thick pine and lots of citrus hops. Grapefruit and lemon.

T- Lots of citrus hops, grapefruit and lemmony. The citrus hop flavors lead the way followed by some maltiness and the pine.

M- Good body and carbonation, oily and resinous. There's plenty of hop zip and bitterness on the finish.

O- I wish that I had more than two of these. I'm sure it'll be a while before I can get it again.
