Nice hop taste, nice finish. Not an overbearing hop taste, lingers on the tongue. The color is a nice dark amber. It is a an IPA that I would recommend to friends.

Poured into a clear beer stein. Has a cloudy amber color, moderate carbonation, and thick head.

Smells spicy in hops and piney, with hints of tangerine peels and other citrus aromas. Tastes citrusy to balance out the spicy hops, but is all light to the mouth.

It's all right.

12oz canned 3/27/17 poured into a can glass at fridge temp. No ABV listed. The beer is a slightly hazy light copper color with off white head. The head settles into a cap and leaves some lacing. The aroma is light citrus and pine with malt in the background. The tastes starts with mild caramel malt and fruity hops and finishes with pine. The bitterness is understated but is enough to balance the malts. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, lightly carbonated and finishes oily/slick but with off taste. Overall, ok, but not something to go out of the way to attain.

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

Appearance: Pours with a thick bubble show with a clear amber colored liquid building beneath the three fingers of foam; copious amounts of lacing stick to the glass and dribble down the side

Smell: Tangerine and onion, with a hint of caramel underneath

Taste: A caramel base provides the first impression, with the hops quickly taking over; tangerine, grapefruit and onion tones build, through the middle, with a rather sharp bitterness featured in the conclusion

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A decent IPA but a bit out of date in the hop profile department; I am sure I would have liked this more a few years ago

Thanks, SPLITGRIN, for the opportunity

Pale golden in color. Cloudy. Subtle hoppiness on the nose. Clean on the pallette. Very smooth. Easy drinking for a 7% ABV. Canned from Loquor Barn on Lexington.
