Beer #5 8/9/13

This IPA looks more like a double, a murky orange-brown color and heavy. A whitish head rises to a decent height, displaying retention and lacing pretty well.
The nose is interesting, if not downright fascinating. It's got all the nutty, earthy, creamy character of a good cheese. If I had to pinpoint one note, it would actually be cheese, at least first off, and it's not a bad thing.
The flavor is big, with lots of hops. Pine with a raw and resinous tone, even a little woody, with lots of floral, pithy and citrus notes make for a strong bitterness, but malts are well-played, bready and malty and strong enough to balance without taking off from the edge the hops give it.
This beer has a full body too, robust but not overwhlemingly thick or filling. It's got a big smoothness to it without neglecting crispness.
This beer makes me very interested in seing more from this tiny brewery.

Seriously hoppy with Cascade, Apollo and Summit hops. On tap in a 12 oz tulip glass. A little different than most IPA's. A nice bitterness with a clean finish.
