Says 7% ABV on the bottle. Pours a golden color. Nose is malty, hoppy, piney. Taste is mostly hops and malts. Pine and citrus on the back end. Good carb with medium to light mouthful. Great IPA.

12 oz bottle poured into a classic imperial pint glass

A totally clear burnt gold color. Medium sized , smooth and relaxed white foam cover. Slow dissipation.

A very musky, herbal and earthy hop funk pops out of the nose to start. Light tropical fruity edge, citric fruit and sharp, tangy fresh herbs are a nice effect underneath.

An interesting mix of sharp, tangy and fruity hops. Earthy, spicy and tangy fruit hops go a long way, mixed with a light, crisp side of amber barley malt backbone that holds it all down for balance.

A very rich but crisp mouthfeel, medium bodied, malty and slughtly slick with a dry, earthy finish. The malt certainly plays a big role in the body and mouthfeel.

Overall, a pretty standard and acceptable IPA. This one will live in the shadows of the vast primordial forest that is known as the IPA style dominance of the current beer market. A nice beginner IPA that has only slight hop complexity compared to some of the , and especially the new wave, New England Style IPA's that have achieved a high level of complexity and charm.

On tap at an Outback Steakhouse (out of despperation, given the alternatives). Poured a decently attractive deep amber with a nice off-white head that reduced to a thin cap rather rapidly. Initial impression was pine and citrus, with bready malt attempting to balance. Mouthfeel was middle-of-the-road medium, as was carbonation. Finish was slightly bitter, with the aforementioned notes of pine, citrus, and bread persisting. Overall, not terribly objectionable but not something that I would seek out. Unless there weren't any alternatives.

Look is golden clear with a small head which breaks quickly. Some spotty lacing. Smell is grainy malts with a minimal amount of hops. Taste is soapy and with piney coming on the back end. Feel is medium with medium carbonation. Soapy aftertaste isn't pleasant.

I will assume this was an old sample. It was not the most pleasant IPA I have had.
