L – Pours to a three finger head that dissipates into a half finger. Quite a bit of lacing remains as you consume. Amber in color, actually more copper, very clear with a noticeable about of carbonation.

A – Floral notes are up front with a nice aroma of sweet malt. Smell of citris and maybe a bit of honey.

T – Sweet up front taste that is taken over by a mild bitterness of hops. Has a dry finish but not at all too harsh.

MF – A lot of carbonation with attack your mouth. If they could get the carbonation a little lower I feel it would help the beer a lot.

D – Very drinkable. I could easily put down a few of these in a session. I enjoyed this beer and would recommend it to someone who is on the fence on IPA’s. The hops in this one are very mild but noticeable. They are close with this one to have a great beer. My recommendations are less carbonation and a bit more hops.

12 oz bottle

pours hazed medium amber, moderate lite khaki cap, going quickly to a splotchy film and leaving some slippery low sheeting.

Pine and hop resin nose.

More resinous hops and grainy pine on the palate.

Decent IPA, not overly complex or overly tasty, but decent, yeah decent, that is the word

Date tasted: July 13, 2013 at Bea McNally's in Hackettstown, NJ... Glassware: pint... Occasion: celebrating a good round (aesthetics more than scores) of golf with bro Jer and Matt....Appearance: dark amber body; slow/low effervescence; thick white head that holds a finger solidly... Aroma: bright, sprucey hops; a backbone of mellow malts keeps the profile a bit unbalanced... Palate: full-bodied, effectively working the whole mouth--a good prelude for a spicy nacho appetizer...Taste: malts are in full effect, belying the IPA style this purports to be--almost an ESB underlying its hoppy flash; the pale hops build their intensity as the glass drain... Overall: aside from Matt's sarcasm concerning the language of the beer rating world--or just me--the drinking experience was a smooth, fitting finish to a good day of golfing, with a solid strength; not so EVIL as it is EVOLVED, a pleasantly drinkable beer that subtly pushes its 6%ABV...only reservation is that it doesn't consistently present as an India pale ale....

First beer in years I could not finish on my first one. As a fan of IPAs the hopes were high for this but it didn't deliver on any criteria. Bought a draft on server recco in a Nonic glass. A: yellow orange with thin head. Not impressed. S: wet rotting vegetables with an orange or lemon peel on top. T: bitter splash on front of tongue that went to dry immediately. No malt balance. M: thin like a Coors Light. Water. O: not the worst beer I ever had but the worst IPA I had in years. Server didn't know anything and it was the only IPA on the menu so I had to go this way. I was off put buy the draft serve as the smell hit me immediately so it probably made my taste buds run in fear. Pass
