A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with some lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of herbal and spicy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having lots of flavors of herbal hops along with notes of spicy hops and hints of underlying caramel malts. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA does a good job at hiding its alcohol from the taste, but I didn't find the combination of herbal and spicy flavors to be rather pleasant.

Nice amber colored IPA. Taste was okay. The IBUs felt a little higher. Aftertaste was good. Doesn't linger too much.

At first sniff didn't expect much, hardly any aroma (more caramel than hops) . The taste was definitely better. Hops and barley well balanced with lingering finish. Many of the great IPA's finish a bit too crisp for my taste. The hops are a nice blend of pine, light citrus and earth. If the brewery added some aroma hops this could be a very good beer.

Brown suger notes on the smell. Mellow hop notes lined with a hint of sweetness.

Pours a deep copper amber.

The malt is at the forefront here with a graham cracker amber ale flare. The hop profile is more centered around a clean bitter finish. Not a juicy aromatic hop explosion we've grown used to. 10 years ago this would have been considered a hoppy take on an English IPA. Now I don't know what it is, but it's a good IPA that's not trying to rock worlds.
