This was really good, and it surprised me because the pale ale was just ok.

Pours a chill hazed amber color with a big cream colored head that falls slowly and leaves some nice sheet lace down the glass.

Aroma is ripe tropical fruits, sprinkles of pine needles,light floral notes. Good hop presence on bready malt base.

Taste is big hop bite, dank hops lots of citrus rind bitterness, with pine notes mingled through out. Good bitterness on this one even though its not fresh. Malt base is just enough to hold the hops.

Mouthfeel is a big medium with carbonation that is lightly peppy.

Overall a pretty descent IPA, big hoppy brew with a good a good kick.

Very very bitter. I don't know if it's the malts or what. It's pretty harsh. It's like a crappier stone ipa

Edit: great smell. Hoppy initial taste but not much going on. There is no balance at all

Tall boy into a pint glass. Good 2 finger head. Nice lacing. Dark, amber colored brew.

Smell is primarily hop florelness. Not really citrusy at all. Dry biscuity smell.

Taste is interesting. No where near classic west coast IPA at all. Good carbonation up front. Non-descript but well balanced up-front. Major hop florelness with a tiny bit of lemon. The hop is primarily bitter. I get a bit of funk at the end... Not a skunkiness, but more of a onion sharpness or a fermented food flavor. It's a weird IPA. I guess the draw is the hop style... Not very refreshing... It's a hoppy beer, not a citrusy beer.

Not my favorite IPA. If you like citrusy IPA's stay away. ABV hidden well. I could see it paired with offal, like liver and onions. I give it a 82/100.

Gotta try this again. You had it on tap at Mason Lounge, but it wasn't an environment conducive getting a solid impression from it.
