Reviewed from notes. Consumed 8/17/17. Poured from a 12 oz. can into an El Catador Barrel-Aged glass.

A: Hazy, though not turbid, darkish gold. Just over a finger's worth of off-white head with good retention. Lots of visible carbonation as well as some floaters in suspension. This is fairly pretty.

S: Citrus rind and resin. Milder tropical fruits and vegetal. But the sticky piney aroma predominates. Biscuit malt backbone adds a good bit of sweetness, but I'm not getting caramel on the nose.

T: Bitter conifer and crushed juniper, with orange pith. Big malty sweetness, and some caramel and toffee as well. There’s a bit of oxidation here too – I’m cutting it close to the best-by date on the can, but this is still under the wire. More resin and grapefruit peel at the swallow.

M: A hefty body for an IPA, but not obnoxious. Alcohol presence is about average, as is the carbonation sensation.

O: I mean…it's an adequate IPA from 2009. I'm overlooking what seems to be some oxidation (and therefore a complaint more about the printed best by date rather than the beer itself). It's got an old-school East Coast malt presence, but not a complete caramelly mess, and has a hefty bitterness. It would do in a pinch if you found it somewhere, but I can’t imagine there would be many places that wouldn’t have something that tastes better.

It is exactly as the Brewer advertises it. An IPA with citrus, pine and slightly bitter. It's an individual taste thing, you either like that combination or you do not. I enjoy it, it's not over the top in any one regard but a solid choice in an IPA to have at home (again - if you like the combination presented with citrus and pine with a slight bitterness in an unfiltered brew - so of course it is hazy).

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Hazy burnt orange color, thick 1 inch head, really good lacing

S: Citrus and pine hops, caramel malts

T: Bright citrus and pine right up front but a nice balance of the caramely malts, leaves a really nice sweet aftertaste

M: Medium, velvety smooth

O: Ranks right up there with some of my favorite IPAs. Maybe not all the way to the top, just lacking a little bit of depth but still a quality brew.

Can best by 5/30/18. Wine glass.

A: pours a turbid golden orange with 1 finger bone white head. Great lacing and retention.

S: sweet, citrusy, malty grapefruit peel.

M: heavier side of mid weight; moderate carbonation. Not too slick.

O: awesome heavier and traditional flavor IPA. I would drink this regularly if it were available

Pale yellow, maybe a greenish hue. Lot of rising bubbles. A modest pine note but overall not very strongly flavored for an IPA. Very subdued hop profile. This falls under the category of not bad, but I wish I could taste more of it. Poured from a can 5 months before the best by date, so I can’t imagine it’s too old, but yeah, pretty weak.

Poured from a freshness dated 12 oz. can: somewhat murky, golden-honey hue with a sustained, foamy white head. Suspended sediment is visible.

Very nice and fresh citrus aroma.

This is a very balanced IPA, in fact, neither the hops or the malt dominates. The ale begins with a sharp, citrusy hop bite but it settles into a nice flavor of marmalade and malt. At one point I could faintly detect vanilla as well as some short-lived pine.

A medium body is matched by a well-rounded mouthfeel with a lingering bittersweet flavor on the palate. The body is slightly heavier than your typical IPA.

This is my second ale from this brewery, and like the pale ale, I am very impressed. While it will not blow you over with the hop profile, it is a well balanced ale that is extremely quaffable and refreshing.

Poured a golden color with a standard hop profile you would expect from and IPA. Malt backbone is solid and not over done. Gangway is good drinkable IPA.
