My all time favorite IPA, a “gold standard” in my opinion. Just a classic, clean interpretation.

Pours a clear light amber color thumb sized off white head, good lace.

Aroma is nice caramel malt base, citrus notes, floral, lightly spicy in the finish.

Taste is like the nose, good caramel sweetness loaded with hops citrus fruity, floral herbal spicy in the finish. Not overly bitter but good and complex.

Mouhfeel is medium with pretty level carbonation.

Overall a solid enjoyable regular IPA.

From a single (six weeks old) 12 oz. can, purchased in Louisville, enjoyed in a shaker in a hotel room. Golden amber, a little hazy, 1 finger head with decent retention. Nose: caramalt, pepper and pine, grapefruit pith, grassy and slightly bitter hops...taste follows. I like the hops a lot, but I could use a little less caramel maltiness. Nice battle between bitter hoppiness and smooth malts. Fairly substantial beer, good solid mouthful. Wouldn't mind having another go at this one when I wasn't coming off an 11 hour drive.

From a 355ml can. Pour had a very fluffy 2-inch white to off-white foam head and a clear peach-amber coloring. Very mild effervescence present. Scent is citrus heavy with a bit of herbal spice, although everything is a bit muted. Taste has a strong malt backbone and even stronger bitterness to the finish and aftertaste. It is generally pleasant early on with nice citrus notes that blend to a malty caramel before the last half is dominated by bitterness. With 80 IBUs I guess I should have seen it coming, but not exactly in my bailiwick. The long, long lasting bitterness is likely sought after by some, but would prefer the malts to dull it a bit. Enjoyable sample from a beer of the month club, but too bitter for my tastes.

Freshie can... 1-3-19

Medium amber, slight haze, copious fine lacing.

Mild resin hopped up nose.

Tasty enough IPA, on the resiny side of the IPA spectrum. Well crafted, easy drinking but nothing overly special going on here.

Pours a cloudy amber color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, alcohol, strong citrus hops, floral hops, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable bitterness. Tastes of sweet malt, alcohol, strong citrus hops, floral hops, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, good appearance, blend, and body.
