Poured 12 ounces into my tulip glass, quite fresh as it was bottled on 6/10/14. 1/2 finger of creamy white head disappeared quickly. However, the golden amber hue of this beer was quite impressive. Aroma of pine and light lemon zest. Hit me with a strong piney/grassy opening note. Very clean and refreshing with a pronounced bitter finish. The light carbonation lent to a bit of a watery mouthfeel, though pretty par for the IPA course. Overall, the only thing I felt that was lacking in this well-balanced, refreshing brew was a bit more of the citrus hop flavor. This would have bumped it up even higher that my great rating. Interested to try this on tap, extremely fresh one day. Excellent IPA.

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. Hazy orange color with 1/2” of head that recedes to a soapy film on top, with some lacing on sides. Nose is orange juice, grapefruit, slight bitterness with some pine notes- mostly citrus. Little to no alcohol detected. Taste is citrus (on the mellow side, not extremely bitter) with some sugary malt backing and floral notes. Hops gradually coat the tongue, but not with as bitter a finish as other American IPAs. Medium carbonation, somewhat creamy texture. Medium-bodied with a nice balance. Overall this is a tasty IPA with understandably wide appeal.

12oz bottle poured into non-labelled tulip glass on a sunny cold afternoon.

Aroma: golden, slightly hazy, less than an inch of white foam head.

Scent: slight floral notes, fresh grains

Taste: Floral hops, balanced nicely with malt attributes

Mouthfeel: moderate carbonation, medium bodied, not super sticky like some bigger ipas can be.

overall: every time i drink this beer I am reminded why this is one of the best examples of an IPA. Really well balanced, drinkable, and something new to enjoy each time you drink it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Hazy orange, moderate carbonation leading to 2 finger head. Looks good. Standard for an IPA.

S: Upfront and good amounts of hops. Very floral.

T: Quite floral in the beginning and then the bitter and slightly piney hops come in. Light malts ends it with a touch of booze.

M: A little less heavy than a normal IPA - medium with a bit of carbonation.

O: Very good, and in all honesty, its one of my favorites of the style. The bitterness isn't overbearing and is very well balanced. Quite smooth and session-able. If you want to try a good IPA, then check this one out.
