This is definitely one of my new favorite IPAs. It is actually very similar to Bell's Hopslam in many regards.

The smell has a strong aroma of apricot, peach and mango. The taste is also very citrusy, with the apricot and peach flavor standing out the most along with the hops. It is surprisingly sweet for an IPA and as a very mild bitterness.

While having a pretty decent ABV, there is no indication of how strong it is and would be very easy to drink quite a few back to back.

A decent ipa, the honey is there, but nothing to write home about.

Freshest by 11/28/16. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy copper; fluffy off-white head that slowly falls leaving great retention and sticky lacing. The aromas are malty with some sticky caramel notes. Slightly floral. There's also a subtle mixture of citrus and tropical notes. The flavors follow the nose. Solid malt backbone, but nice hop flavors and bitterness as well. Lots of caramel notes. Some orange and grapefruit in the mix. Slightly earthy and spicy. Some pine notes. The honey is noticeable. There's a subtle warmth, but nothing crazy. Alcohol basically goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is nice. It's full-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's extremely fluffy and smooth. Dangerously drinkable.

This is a nice brew. It comes off as a hoppy red ale, in my opinion. Well crafted and enjoyable stuff.

You looking for trouble? You've come to the right place.

This one looks real nice, with big head and a deep golden color. The aroma is a rich hoppy, malty smell. All nice.

The taste is very bitter - a pure hops bitter. The amazing finish is where that bit of honey comes out.

All around, this is a very nice treat. Bitter, well made, unique, and refreshing. I would like more!

4-pack purchased from local grocery store (Heinen's) for $11.93 otd.

12oz bottle poured into SA glass. Clear, copper-honey elixir, 3 finger head peaks atop the glass. Slightly yellow-white thick bubbles with plenty of lacing.

The nice floral, citrus tones mingle with a "balanced" bready malt presence. Uh-oh.

There is a nice dank, resinous hop bitterness here that never gets a chance to establish its dominance before the malt wave comes to crash the party. Some smooth back end hops linger, foretelling what could have been.

Medium body, slightly under carbonated. Alcohol bleeds over.

What could have been. Has just above mediocrity established a foothold on W25th?
