Pours an orange gold with a thin, frothy head. The nose has a surprisingly high amount of yeast notes for an ipa. There are strong piney, earthy hops. This is similar to torpedo from sierra nevada. The flavor is nice and boost up front with sappy and piney notes.

Appearance - orangish amber

Smell - bready, herbal, dank hops

Taste - Very herbal/earthy hops, carmel bready malts - definitely not a West Coast, more like East Coast IPA in my opinion. Spicy finish bitter finish

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied - a little too much carbonation for my tastes

Overall - solid IPA, nice bitterness and malt - not a "fruity" IPA at all so it is very unique tasting. I like more fruity/citrus IPAs so I can appreciate this but I probably won't buy it again. That being said it is definitely worth a try.

Appearance - Pours a deep amber with two fingers of cream coloured head.

Smell - citrus and leafy hops, bready caramalts, pine resin, hint of grapefruit peel, tropical fruits.

Taste - Starts off with the hops followed by the bready caramalts, hint of pine resin, hint of grapefruit peel, and tropical fruits.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a lingering sweetness alongside a light bitterness from the hops.

Overall - An IPA with the elements in place. Not as hop forward as I would prefer but still a worthy IPA.
