Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

This medium bodied American style IPA has an alluring golden glow and beautifully blends three strains of hops. While strong citrus notes ambush your taste buds halfway through the palate, the beer finishes very crisp and dry.

Checked out this brewery for the first time yesterday. They also have a 5.2% Amber currently on tap.

Pours a nice bright golden/yellow color with a thick, frothy head into my glass. Ultra-fresh too!

Grassy hops with just a hint of pine resin greet the nose. Hoppy but not by too much.

The taste is where this shines: grassy, piney hops upfront followed by a slight amount of buttery malt. It's hop-forward and reminds me of the IPA once brewed by Orlio (the brewer is Matty O, ex-Magic Hat).

The mouthfeel is a treat because the hops cling to the throat, leaving a bit of warmth on the way down.

Hate to be a homer but this is a very nice IPA! I wasn't too big on the Amber but I think I'll be hitting Fiddlehead more for this IPA!
