Cracked open enjoyed on Christmas Day 2016 along with a couple Snicker's (Rogue Double Chocolate Stout mixed with Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar). This is a solid IPA, very floral and not too bitter. I think I've been biased since being corrupted by the discovery of Mosaic hops. So I try not to slander IPA's without Mosaic like this one. I will get this again.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color with a short dense off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a very thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma fruity citrus, caramelized malts and piney hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel and citrus. Then a strong but not over-powering earthy hops bitterness come in. The malt character is hearty and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, while it’s not an extreme hop bomb, it’s balanced, flavorful and worth drinking for a long time.

Huge head from the 22 ounce bottle--more than four fingers. It settles slowly in a rocky fashion, leaving a solid dome. Chunky, spider web lace. The liquid is orange-amber and a bit cloudy.

Caramel malt aroma. Nearly no hop smell.

Smooth body with a moderated carbonation. There's a lavender element to the otherwise malty flavor. The swallow is a white pepper bitterness. I get yeast on the tongue as well.

Bought 22oz bottle from Foodland $6.98
Orange amber color
Medium mouthfeel
Medium-light carbonation
Sweet hops taste, smooth and not bitter like a lot of IPAs
Overall this is an easy drinking IPA. I normally drink IPAs slower than other styles like lagers, but this one is so smooth I find myself drinking it too fast. If the price was lower I would buy these as 6-packs.
