Served in a pint from the tap.

Appearance: Deep amber with heavy gold tint to the body. Extra bubbles creates a subtle head coming off white maybe half a finger's length.

Smell: citrus scent and light Ligt floral.

Taste: floral citrus and super bitter. Malts give you a lot, almost overdosed on them.

Mouth: sticky and extra bubbles.

Overall: Descent brew, would be a mainstay in my fridge if I had easy access to it.

Pours a clear amber color with a moderate head. Very calm looking appearance, and I do not see any visible carbonation at all.

Nose is full of grassy and piney hops. Fairly straightforward smell.

This is undoubtedly a West Coast-inspired IPA. The hop bitterness and the dryness is at the forefront, with little sweetness present. This is not a bad beer by any stretch, but I feel like every creative decision made by the brewers is the opposite of my preference.

If you like dry West Coast IPA's give this a shot, for me, this is probably the only time I'll be having this.

This beer pours a very clear deep straw with an average, sustaining head. The aroma is fairly restrained, with hints of caramel, pineapple, and dankness. The flavor starts with dank and piney notes, with some burnt sugar notes following this, and a nice bitter swallow. It does taste to me as if there is a touch of oxidation present, as there is a slightly nutty, sherry-like flavor. Perhaps the beer is a bit past its prime? I am unable to locate a bottle date. The mouthfeel is fairly full. Overall this has some impressive bitterness, but there is something about the base that is not quite right. Maybe just to far out of my style.

From an undated bomber, pours a very clear coppery gold with an inch of off-white, somewhat sudsy head. Fair amount of lacing. Initial smell is spicy herbs, pine, citrus and caramel malts. Taste is pine and something spicy and minty like eucalyptus or bay leaves, leading to some faintly sweet breadiness, finishing with spicy/piney bitterness. Feel is straight up medium, nicely carbonated--a good drinker. Overall a solid, good-quality IPA that I'm enjoying just fine.
