A great every day IPA. Steady and mid-path.

A: Pours a cloudy amber color with a meringue head that lasts and laces a little.

S: Pleasing blend of caramel malt and piney hops, dank, lots of grass and spring herbs.

Taste: The balanced malt and hop favor the piney, floral hops, more citrus jam mid palate on bright, light toast.

Mouthfeel: Medium w lots of carbonation, cleansing, juicy finish.

O: A little dank, a little soapy, but mostly juicy and spring like. Straightforward and an every day kind of IPA.

Summit hops give off a "dank" smell, smell almost resembling the mosaic hop. Was expecting a bitter assault on the pallet but the taste was much more subdued. Super delicious and very drinkable. Bottled from somewhere in CT.

This was another good find while back home in MA. A nice American IPA that isn't overly hoppy to the point where it begins to taste like soap. It had great balance between malt, hop, and citrus. A great year-round beer that offers something for every season. Hope I start to find it around like I do Whale Tail.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden orangish color with an off-white head with nice retention and lacing. The aroma is malt and citrusy hops. The taste like the aroma is more on the balanced side with bright citrusy hops.

you can tastes the hops is it red hot? this is a white labeled beaut. the bottle looks cool and its nice and dry and fuckin crisp. its even got a little salt in the after birth. splitting this delight between two adventureers after a 430 smoke mesh is best. taste is I'm proved by drinking from a coffee mug. since you don't need to see what it looks like ins the the label on says what it looks like when in glass glassware. its good . this maybe should b a PSA for not writing beer reviews when your stoned. but maybe its the best thing to do on right now. ok i gotta go my room mate is playing the harry potter theme on his martini. good beer though.
