3.74/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a very lightly hazy medium to dark golden honey in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly along the edges of the glass and moderate medium golden yellow + burnt orange colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall sudsy foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a large patch of medium thick film covering a little more than 60% of the surface of the beer surrounded by a very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of floral, citrus/grapefruit pith, citrus/grapefruit zest, herbal, and pine hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of toasted + caramel malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there are just shy of moderate flavors of toasted + biscuit + caramel malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of floral, citrus/grapefruit pith, citrus/grapefruit zest, herbal, and pine hops which impart a light to moderate amount of aggressive bitterness which lingers well through the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp initially.

O: Very much an old school style IPA - malty and sweet initially with aggressively bitter hops towards the finish. Enjoyable and fairly easy to drink.

Good quality, classic IPA. Great hop profile. This is a fantastic beer that's worth trying if you like IPAs. Srong hops without being overwhelming. Good head that hold up.

Big creamy, white head and very balanced, but hop forward nose. Solid bitterness but the texture is a little watery. This s drinkable for 6.8%. This is solid Ohio brew I can't get at home. Thanks, Nate!

12oz can poured into the SN/DFH IPA glass
A: Light orange with a solid head
S: Light citrus rind, pine and grass
T: Matches the nose. A bit light but that allows the flavors to express themselves rather than hitting you in the face with hops
M: Light to medium-bodied, crisp and refreshing
O: This doesn't taste like it has 6.8% abv. If it was less this would be a fantastic beer to make a session with- tasty and not too heavy

Pours a lightly hazy golden light Amber color. Aroma is a little bitter with pine notes and malts keep conning through. Flavor is litely hoppy with some pine and and slightly malty finish. Mouthfeel is very lite and overall this is ok but very forgettable.

Have to disagree with the luke warm reviews....nice light IPA, nice nose and cascade...a bit flat as you go along, but good. Better than a lot of the competition, not super special, but nice

Draft at market 65. English pub glass.

Appearance: pours a light, bright copper Orange. 3 fingers off white head. Outstanding lacing and retention.

Aroma: at first, loaded other tropical and resist aroma. Fades as the head subsides to a very faint tart citrus. Pretty tame.

Taste: Off-dry, resinous and light arrival. Somewhat malty, light resinous mid palate. Light resinous finish.

Mouthfeel: clean, light carbonation.

Overall: starts off great, then just falls flat. The nose and palate just disappoint. It is refreshing and pretty to look at, though.
