poured 22oz bottle into snifter. Bottle dated 9/17/13.

A - Clearish light orange/honey color and a good 2 finger white head. Fades into a collar that leaves behind blotches of lacing.

S - Typical citrus, grapefruit, and some light pine notes. There is some cracker and bread maltiness with hints of caramel and honey.

T - Citrus, grapefruit, and hoppy pine notes up front. Middle is cracker and bready malt with caramel and honey to knock back the bitterness. Finish is mostly bitter grapefruit.

M - Light bodied and easy to drink. Not a big biter presence on the palate.

O - Standard IPA offering that is not really great or complex. On the same level as many IPAs in the state. It should be known they do not currently have a bottling machine and the beer is trucked up to Point brewery, bottled, then distributed.

Pours golden with a thin lasting white head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of grapefruit, orange, some lemon with a subtle bready pale malt backing. Some spicy pepper mixes in.

The taste is if citric and aspirin-like bitterness upfront with a late honey sweetness balancing it in the finish.

It has a chewy body. Smooth.

Overall, it's a nice standard American IPA.
