12 oz bottle

Pours mostly clear amber. Pillowy white head dissipates to a sudsy lacing.

Smells of biscuit and grassy malts with piney and earthy hops.

Mild honey malt over dry biscuit, cereal, and woody notes. Piney and woody bitter hop finish.

Medium body, tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Solid English style IPA, pretty pour and good aroma. Could do with a bit more malt balance to the hops, but otherwise no complaints. Worth trying.

This really is an exceptional IPA. There's not much I can say about the aroma and taste that others haven't already. I will say this - this beer reminds me very much of Stone IPA (the original). You can think of it as a Stone with better smell, taste and drinkability. If you enjoy IPA's, grab this one if you ever have an opportunity... You won't be disappointed

Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled of citrus, pine and toasted caramel. Nice sweet caramel flavor with piney bitterness and citrus.

grabbed a six pack during my Cleveland trip with the misses. 12oz bottled on 06/02/17

Appearance- hardy pour it's a hazy (very slight transparency) golden/straw color. super frothy off white/cream colored head that leaves decent lacing.

Aroma- biscuit mixed with orange juice. nothing crazy but I dig it.

Taste- like the smell. a slight biscuit malt action mixed with a fruity orange/ grapefruit juice taste. bitterness isn't much but kind of lingers in the background after the sip.

Mouthfeel- medium/ light bodied. good carbonation even with the super frothy head from the pour.

Drinkability- super crushable.

Overall- this brew is pretty good. I was hoping for some pine action with the hop lineup but nope. easily a nice session brew. I don't know if i'll leave the state to pick up this up but when i'm ever back in ohio and this is available i'll gladly drink it.
