4.1/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

a - poured a one finger thick off-white head into a snifter that left a thin ring and sheet throughout. the body was a bright orange-amber color.
s - citrusy and grassy hops.
t - citrus, grassy and floral hops with some honey sweetness to balance it out. this reminds me a little of hopslam, jr.
m - bubbly and crisp but a little too thin.
o - very drinkable and solid ipa. i would have like more carbonation but overall really good. loved the aroma and taste.

One of the better midwest IPAs that I have had that is not brewed in Minnesota. Wish I could have paired it with a bowl of Skyline chili.

12oz can poured into a can glass, canned 12/29/15

A- pours a clear deep golden color with a two-finger creamy and foamy white head that has good retention, sticking around long after the pour

S- up front has a bit of a vegetal & herbaceous aroma; leafy greens & cooking herbs. Beyond that, aromas of grass, floral hop, citrus & subtle toasted malt

T- juicy, slightly tangy citrus fruit up front with an emphasis on grapefruit peel, followed by vegetal notes that follow the nose, piney, floral and grassy hops kick in near the finish, with dry linger of more grass and toasted malt

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthful and a dry crisp finish

O- easy drinking ipa with a nice mix of hop flavors

Canned 1-7-2016. DFH Tulip.

Appearance: Slightly hazy gold with 1 finger white head. Active, visible small-bubble carbonation. Fair retention, keeps a little skim with a white ring around the edge and islands of bubbles in the middle.

Aroma: Familiar lemon-lime hoppiness, some resin, then a floral/tropical character; perhaps mango. There is a floral malty quality to this that smells, not kidding here, like a Speyside single malt Scotch whisky.

Taste: Immediately dry, bitter, clean arrival. Light, super crisp malt across the middle, then a strong, but not overpowering hop bitterness finish. This is less bitter than expected. I'd put it around 50 IBUs. Not sweet in the least, with lots of citrus, then pine hop resin and lingering light bitterness. The hop bitterness really shows up on the tongue after the swallow, not before. Very strange.

Mouthfeel: Heavier side of light; active, but not overpowering carbonation. Pretty damned clean, if I do say so myself.

Overall: This is a super crisp and refreshing West Coast style IPA. Reminds me of (gasp!) Sam Adams Rebel. But this has a less fragrant nose than Rebel and WAY more bitterness on the end. An excellent light/summer IPA, similar to, but less bitter than Mystic Mama, more bitter than Rebel, less tropical than White Rajah. Definitely six-pack worthy.

This is a really solid ipa. Delicious floral and tropical hop flavors sustained and held nicely together by the malt backbone. Decent aroma upon opening of can as well.

12 oz. can, dated July 2015, into a snifter.

A: Clear but limited clarity in the gold-amber body. Moderate size but short lived head leaves spotty lacing on the glass.

Aroma - very fruity, with plenty of citrus, mainly orange. Suggests more tartness than sweetness. Good complexity.

Feel: Medium body and near medium carbonation. Crisp and dry.

Flavor: Some sweet malt; enough to leave this IPA with relatively low bitterness for style. The hoppy characteristics still dominate, with tropical fruit, herbal and evergreen notes.

Overall: Low bitterness but plenty of hops for an IPA.
