A good beer, but well below average for an IPA. 6.5% Alcohol. Get this beer only if it's the only IPA on draft (besides Davidson's or Schmaltz- which should find another line of work, since they really don't know how to brew beer).

My first foray back into IPA's and it got better with every sip, by the end I was sad it was gone. Really solid and pretty affordable, I would buy again for sure.

Appearance: A dark golden brown, but not too dark and it is crisp and clear. The carbonation is plentiful and forms a 1-2 finger thick head with a foam which turns into medium sized bubbles as it fizzes.

Smell: A noticeable maltiness that is rich with toasty bread aromas and ending in a herbal hoppiness that is subtle. At the end I get some notes of citrus, but not any grassy pines like I love in other beers.

Taste: The flavor is great and I think this beer is good for when you want a quiet IPA. It has 6.5% ABV and a cool 45 IBUs which is as low as I’d ever go, hence the idea of a “quiet” IPA. The crisp malts that form the body linger for a while before giving way to the herbal hops and some notes of nutmeg at the end. The citrus is like a tangerine flavor that gently kisses the hops and lingers for just the right amount of time. There is a pleasant after taste of resins that stay for a while on the tongue also. Very nice!

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is pretty standard, but nice. It is a smooth feel with just enough carbonation to give the texture. The head tickles the lips and makes the aroma amplified. The head stayed all the way until I finished this refreshing beer.

Overall: I think this is a great beer but it could be more hoppy. I love the malts though and the timed release of the various flavors is excellent. Save this one for a lazy Sunday when you don’t want to drink too much but are in the mood for a calm IPA.
