At the brewery, in a willi becher, pours a light copper. Nose is piney but also flowery. Some fruity -- not getting bitter or dank...maybe some citrus (but not bright or distinct) and some cantaloupe and some mint. Some toasted malts. Taste follows the nose...there's a lot going on there, but it doesn't really come to a clear or distinctive point for me. No bite, really, but full flavors. Fairly malty in the face of all those hops, so balanced, fairly substantial body. This is okay, but the IPA field is so crowded, I can't see myself going out of my way to find it again.

The Take 6 was another favorite of mine from this brewer. The IPA poured a orange-copper color with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent and taste carried piney hops and hints of citrus. The hops were well balanced with a toasted malt. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it was good.

Decent but typical (no balance) IPA. Better when offered cask-conditioned.
