This is the second in the single hopped IPA series from Stouts, this one features Bravo hops.

A: A nice light copper color, with a white head, and a little bit of wispy lacing.

S: Smell is piney, with undertones of citrus, with caramel malt present as well.

T: This beer is balanced for sure, tastes is similar to the smell with pine and citrus flavors with a candy-like sweetness and malty, not overly bitter. I'm really enjoying this one as I really enjoy well balanced IPAs, there is definitely a nice ratio of hop and malt flavor in this beer.

F: Creamy and smooth going down, not very dry in the end. The taste lingers around the mouth awhile.

O: This is my first beer from this brewery and I came away impressed, and I'll be trying more of their brews soon. This one might not be for those looking for a hop bomb, but if you like more balanced IPAs if you see this one give it a try.

a 750ml bomber purchased earlier this week at the brewery

A- a hazy (bottle conditioned) copper with a fluffy off white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Nice lacing.

S- A nice balance of piney, citric and floral hops, with a light malty backbone that has a heavy hint of candy like sweetness.

T- Follows the smell nicely. Hops are fairly bitter, but not crushing. You can pick out a lot in the hop profile, Grapefruit, a hint of orange, a bit of pine, some floral characteristics. Malt is fairly light, but that bit of candy sweetness and a hint of caramel sets it apart.

M- medium bodied, light side of medium actually. Dry, but not over the top.

O- quite good. In my head this is the love child of Bell's Two Hearted and Sly Fox Route 113.
