Pours a hazy deep yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, faint pine like hops. In the taste, dryer pine like hops with a note of orange citrus. A hop like bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry pine hop in the aftertaste. Really nice hops, and a good balance.

On tap in a sampler at the brewpub.

The aroma is an intriguing combination of fruit and earthy, spicy hops, backed up with some malt.

It's a slightly hazy gold color, with still a little head after sitting in the sampler while I made my way through the other 5 beers. The head that dropped left some nice lace on the glass.

The hops are in front here, followed quickly by sugary malt and then a hit of bitterness. A pleasant fruitiness rounds it out. The bitterness and hop spice linger, along with a touch of alcohol heat,

Medium body and strong bitterness pump up the mouthfeel.

I can't decide if this is an American IPA with some English hops, or vice-versa. In either case, it's eminently drinkable. Not extreme, but should satisfy most hopheads, and some who think they don't like hoppy beers, too.

this is awesome. as fresh as can be, a really well crafted product. pours bright gold color with a small but persistent white lace head. its got a touch of haze to it as well. smells more like the cluster hops, dank and sticky, and a lighter malt body. the flavor is balanced and complex hops interplaying with one another between that english and american style, but in true revolutionary war fashion, the american cause prevails. the finish is bitter and calling for another sip. feel is nice too, medium body, happening carbonation. it almost feels cask conditioned in the sense that its got that creamy smooth texture to it, but i think its a product of freshness here. majorly sessionable. all up an great strong ipa with well hidden kick. ill get this again.
