A little hazy, honey colored and a finger thick head that quickly settled into a thin layer and spotty lacing.

Nose starts out smelling just like a brewery. That may sound sillt, but I mean that rich grainy, thick smell you get when you go into the vessel room or whatever it's called. After that, not much else.

Taste is an immediate rush of pine hop bitter and sweet candy like maltifun.

Starts out thick, stays full bodied and finishes dry.

This one is pretty tasty to be sure.

Not reviewed since had at Cincinnati's ballpark. Probably the best IPA had on the trip, big hop flavor.

A - Clear yellow-gold, with slight casting and big white head that fades in time. Huge lacing as you drink. Nice.

S - Pine and resin are core, with a nice punch of lemon citrus and grapefruit pith. Floral and some herbal notes, too.

T - Powerfully bitter, but with a solid fruitiness in the form of orange and lemon. Cracker malt. Bitter close that trails.

M - Brisk carbonation, crunchy, with a bitterness in the close that builds.

O - Strong IPA, with bright and sinewy hop notes. The bitterness in the close is a bit much, but overall it is still an enjoyable beer, just one I do not follow with another IPA for fear of blowing my palate.

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.
