very surprised to not see any ratings on this yet. thanks to my close homie back east for sending this out for me, sneaking it into a pretty amazing box! its darker than honey colored, but short of amber, definitely a more balanced and grain driven ipa, more old school than what else is coming from the east coast right now. i like it being a little maltier, drinking this after some trillium stuff it had a tough act to follow, but definitely was a needed change of pace. there is fine bitterness here, a nice floral and piney hop profile, a little spice in there, says cascade to me (among others), balanced by a richer grain profile and a smooth round easy body. this is well made beer, i think the proportions are nicely dialed in, and it ends up lingering nicely on the tongue with some malt sweetness and hop bitterness that go back and forth. its frothy and well carbonated, palate coating and hearty, while also being quite a crushable little can of beer. my first from roc brewing, i hope to check them out when i am back east again, this was good and somewhat different from the generic. not epic, but nicely done.
