A pint at River Stone Chophouse on 8/14/14. A pleasant middle of the road West Coast style IPA. Nice head and lace, slightly cloudy (maybe more of a chill haze) and copper tinged. Good balance between caramel maltiness and tropical fruit hops, both aroma and taste. Low carbonation and medium bodied. Very balanced.

Appearance: hazy orange in color with a 2" head that slowly falls to a thick covering.

Smell: hint of citrus and some earthiness.

Taste: caramel, orange, grapefruit, pine, and a dank bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Crisp from start to finish. Some dryness arrives late.

Overall: an easy to drink IPA that has enough bitterness to keep you happy.

Decent IPA. Pours a hazy golden/orange color with a fairly bigh white head. Some lacing and decent head retention. Aroma is fairly mild citrus hops. Flavor is balanced citrus hops and to a somewhat lesser extent caramel malt and dry bready malt. Good mouthfeel, Not too watery and crisp. Bitterness is fairly good.

A worthwhile try, I would drink this one again.

A: Golden-amber color, but cloudy. Head was a finger of near-white foam; lacing was mediocre.

S: Some mild biscuit aroma, a bit more of the fruity notes (strawberry, apricot), and the evergreen aroma of hops.

T: Malt is subdued compared to tart fruit flavors that dominate: Clementine, nectarine, and bitter orange are noticeable. The finish is tangy-bitter hops, but with each successive sip the bitter finish rises in relation to the tart flavors, and lasts longer; by the end that's all I could really taste.

M: Moist, but crisp and well carbonated. Actually, a little bit over-carbonated (I burped after every swallow), but that was the only flaw in the mouth feel.

O: Decent, certainly drinkable. But the building bitterness and powerful carbonation were just a little off-putting. The IPA market is full of great examples, so there's no point settling for "decent" and "drinkable".

Can into a tulip appears hazy copper with a finger white foam that settles leaving a wall of lace.

Aroma is fruity and floral with slight caramel maltiness, alcohol and minerals.

Taste is hoppy like pine resin, grass and slight mineral component with a caramel malt backbone.

Medium in body with modest carbonation. Decent brew considering the packaged on date was months ago, I bet when fresh this is pretty good.
