A- a hazy copper with mahagony tones. A nice 3 finger head with frothy mountain peaks. Lacing is great and the appearance is enticing.

S- apricot, lemon zest and hints of grapefruit...I also get some sweet brown sugar caramel malts.

F- the flavor mimics the nose but the spice the tongue up nicely. The apricot and lemon zest come out first with the brown sugar malts on the back end. Nice complement to each other.

M- tangy and zesty for a beer...I love it. The mouth feel is slightly carbonated but the flavors come out nicely as it goes down.

O- this is a another good brew from Weyerbacher! I would love a case of this and even a quarter keg if I was having a party. Great stuff!!!

A: This poured a nearly opaque copper with rocky white head.
S: It smelled like faint grapefruit and lemon zest, with some apricot and honey.
T: It tasted like bitter resin and grapefruit, with a little waxy hops and sweet honey. It had a strong bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with lots of carbonation. Lively body.
D: This was an ok IPA, but not great. Maybe the scent already faded, but the taste was still plenty potent. Just not all that enjoyable. The body wasn't right for the style, and the finish was a little harsh. So it wasn't very easy to drink either. I simply wasn't impressed with this brew.

Poured into a snifter

A-Copper colored opaque, thick white foamy head that leaves thick lacing that clings to side of glass. Not much head retention but lacing is long lasting.

S-Citrus hop bomb...grapefruit and mango, notes of pine, grassy, a bit bready with some malty sweetness

T-Follows the nose...nice balance between the citrus and pine of the hops and the sweetness of the malts...followed by a dry bitter finish

M-medium to full bodied, creamy, a bit dry on the back end

O-Nice IPA well balanced, creamy bodied, good hops presence but not over powering ...quite drinkable as the alcohol is fairly well hidden maybe a bit too bitter and dry on the finish but worth visiting again
