12oz undated bottle received from WesMantooth in the first of his BIF boxes.

Poured into a shaker pint glass, this was a chill-hazed copper amber color, with a good sized beige colored head. Lots of lace.

Initially herbal hop nose. Things got a little more complex, with citrusy grapefruit notes coming out to play as it warms. Sweet malty notes emerge as well.

Bitter, grapefruit and herbal hop bite in the opening taste. Despite the label proclaiming it to be a "West Coast IPA," there's a fairly large malt backbone to this that I've come to associate with the majority of midwest IPAs I've had. Finishes dry and herbal.

Medium bodied, with a moderately resiny mouthfeel.

Not bad, but not my jam. This strikes me as a west coast IPA as it might be if brewed by someone who hasn't had one, but has read about them.

Color is golden like bronze, nose is thick of hops. The taste hits quickly with the citrusy hoppy flavor. It is dry, but not too dry. This is a very good, no great beer.

Picked up a single as a gift from my local beer store. Was told it was bottled 8/2/17. Thank you Joe.

Pours to a one finger head, light gold color with good clarity.

Grapefruit and pine coupled with sugary cereal smells. Some lemon, orange, and a bit of apricot. A lot going on.

First taste i notice the apricot first along with orange flavors. The hops carry a decent bitterness which is kept in check by fruiry candy like sweetness, jolly rancher like. Taste not as citrusy as the nose suggested.

Medium bodied and lower carbonation. A touch syrupy and slight lingering bitterness.

Overall a very good IPA. Smell was excellent but the taste didn't follow all the way thru. I'd buy this often if it was available locally and affordable.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass.
It has a golden color with a finger of white head. You smell caramel malts together with the piney hops. The taste has some citrus with the carmel malts.
The finish is a nice citrus hop that is not overpowering. The carbonation was balanced. I really enjoyed this one.

no bottling date on 12oz bottle. thought I caught some numbers on the case box saying beginning of June.

Appearance- a hardy pour into a pint glass it's a transparent straw color with a frothy white head. leaves some lacing.

Aroma- super citrus/ pine hop action. smells of cascade amped to hell. really solid.

Taste- hops are the showcase for sure. has a bitterness to some I could see saying it's too much. very light caramel malt in the background but mostly citrusy grapefruit and pine blast all over this brew.

Mouthfeel- medium/ light bodied. kinda silky. good carbonation.

Drinkability- shoulda grabbed another six of this when I was in Cleveland.

Overall- this beer is a super solid ipa with old school hops. no tropical fruits. no super new hop everyone wants just because it's new. it's grapefruit and pine not pineapple and mango and papaya ect.
