Best IPA ever. Hoppy, citrusy, yet pleasantly smooth and hoppy.

12oz bottle, served in a snifter glass.

Clear golden-orange body, two finger white head, good retention, lots of lacing. Smells of caramel, tapioca, heavy grassy and citrusy hop aromatics, even a little bit of lemon. Flavour is more of the hops here, with a fair bit of grass, more bitter grapefruit, touch of mango, graininess, fair bit of caramel sweetness that balances things out. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, appropriately bitter with a bit of citrus and grassy hop notes. Overall, a very good IPA that probably makes for a great staple IPA in NE Ohio, unfortunately we don't get this in Wisconsin. Glad to have this one for sure.

12 oz bottle. Deep orange amber pour, thin white head that maintains a thin layer, little lacing. Nice ripe fruity aroma. Taste is sweet bready malt and bitter grapefruit and pine hops. The hops win out with long lasting bitterness. Medium soft mouth. Good brew overall.

Impressive color gets me excited despite a lackluster head with whispy lacing. Nose is big grapefruit with a little nose stinging spice as well. Taste is everything all at once - grapefruit bitter, sweet malt and piney finish. Medium body and overly dry. Very nice beer.
