3.58/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours into a tulip glass a hazy saturated orange color, thin layer of cream colored foam on the surface.

Some trace cantaloupe/melon rind aromas, sweet caramel malt, and a hint of sandalwood spice. Some sweet sticky malt behind the softer hop aroma.

Flavor is slightly sweet and fruity, pastry icing and sweet tea flavors, herbal pine bitterness in the aftertaste. Seems a little more malt forward, though there's an adequate hop presence. Light spiciness, a slight bit of cantaloupe, and some abrasive bitter hops towards the end, though restrained. Smooth and mellow feel, light carbonation, a little bit thin. Overall it's pretty good, not a major hop onslaught, more of a skirmish.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 1 pint 6 fluid ounce bottle on February 26, 2017. Look is ruby amber with a thin head and little lacing. Smell is caramel malt and earthy hops. Feel is medium in body.

Poured from a bottle to a snifter.

A: A golden creamy colored body with a nice white foamy head that slowly dissipates.

S: Citrus, pine and malts strong up front coming through in a floral sense, slight malt profile! Gets even more floral forward as it warms

T: Bitter with a decent refreshing quality coming out in a nice way, great back of the mouth feel, def layers of flavors going on in this.

M: Crisp, sharp, sessionable, bitter citrus aftertaste, dry finish

O: Great new local brewery IPA, glad to have tried this and will seek it out in the future. So far they are batting a 100 in my book with this IPA and their Farmhouse/Saison!
