Undated bottle into pint glass. Cloudy pale gold with a coarse, eggshell-white head. Taste is initially citrus, then pine resin, then a very brief malty sweetness, followed by a surprising bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel, nice amount of carbonation. Not a bad IPA, but there are much better ones out there.

On tap at Homegrown in Newark, DE.

This one pours a light gold-ish amber, with a quarter inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like bitter pine and not a whole lot else, maybe some grapefruit, and some vague sweetness.

This tastes like any other run of the mill IPA, unfortunately. Perfumy bitter hops, some pine, very little sweetness, no malt or other flavors, except for some kind booziness, which is weird since it's only 6% ABV.

This is medium bodied, crisp, and somewhat drinkable.

Not all that super interesting.

Had at a tasting with the brewer. I hope this was an old keg. No aroma whatsoever of hops. Very little in the way of hop taste either. Th bitterness was there but little else. If this is a better beer there is no excuse for a brewer not to eliminate this one from the tasting.

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

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

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, citrus and earthy hops.

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

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

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, it’s not a bad beer but there are definitely several other beer in the style that I would choose first.
