Descent ipa a little funky earthiness in there I pick up a bit a of stone fruit and typical pine. A little to basic for me with all the hop bombs out their. An ipa realying on centennial, chinook, and cascade is hard to stand out these days.

The Islander pours a clear straw color with good 3-4 finger head. Tight lacing and head dissipates pretty quickly. The smell is of apricots and pineapple. It has a good mild sweetness following by a good amount of bitterness which is right on track and not too overwhelming. The Islander has a soft mouthfeel and leaves the right about of ibu's on the tongue and back of the throat. I thought it was a great session ipa. I would buy again.

Appearance: Bright gold with a great head of foam, good lacing, and an explosion of carbonation.

Smell: Tropical fruits, pine, and malt.

Taste: Citrus, tropical fruits, and a hint of pine.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Moderate hop bitterness in the finish.

The Verdict: I like it. Good flavor without being overpowering and just enough malts to give a passing nod to the concept of balanced. Not great, but a good solid IPA.

Undated bottle into pint glass. Pours a hazy pale gold with a thick white head that rapidly dissipates to a thin covering. Moderate carbonation. Initially I get pine resin and citrus, but balanced by some malt in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Very nice IPA.

Picked up a 22 oz bottle at a Walgreen's on the Vegas Strip. Went well with some Little Italy Pizza. When I got home from Vegas, I was surprised to see this for sale at Weis.
