This is a West Coast Style Session IPA which means, very hop forward and dry. This well balanced IPA is not too bitter, but with Cascade, Amarillo and Citra hops, it is definitely for the hop lover!

From a can to my trusty Bass Imperial Pint glass, this beer has a massive and I mean massive off-white head. with great lacing. It a hazy apricot color.

The aroma is nice with some C hops adding some pine/citrus notes but there is also some fruit & floral elements.

The pine goes away in the taste and is replaced by peach, apricot and honey. I wasn't expecting that but it not too shabby. There is some sweetness to the beer and it seems to work with the peach flavors.

The mouth is medium with low carbonation.

This one through me for a bit of a loop but I did enjoy it!

My good friend and old neighbor from the 'Wego gave me a can of this beer. It is my first beer from Arkansas! It poured a clear golden with thin white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had subtle faint citrus hop. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with faint pale citrus and pine hop presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a decent beer.

Poured from 12oz can into glass. No dating information found.
Clear, pale amber colored body. One finger white head stays around as thick cap. Leaves behind some good coverage of lacing spots.
Aroma of malts with overtones of dried apricot and peach.
Taste of malts, with apricot, and some earthy floral hops. No bitterness.
Thin to medium mouth feel. Good carbonation. Quite a dry finish.
Unsure of its age, but this IPA expresses no sweet fruitiness or pine, but rather there is a balance of malts and fruits such as apricot.

Bike Rack Slaughter Pen IPA, 6.3% ABV. Pours slightly hazy orange with a two finger white head that left decent lacing. Nose is malty, hoppy pine, slightly fruity, and sweet. Taste is hoppy but not very bitter, sweet, and real smooth. Outstanding smooth mouthfeel, overall excellent. I'm not a big IPA fun due to the general bitterness of the style, but I like this.

Pours a foggy orange with a finger of off-white head. Head retention is good. Aroma is peach, apricot, and biscuit and bread malts. Light notes of herbal and resin hops as well. Flavor profile is apricot, peach, and herbal, and resin hops. Mouth feel comes off as a little thin and watery, although it has a fine fizzy texture at the back of the throat. Overall, a little all over the place, but the peachy, apricot notes are rather nice - not super fruity or sugary - just well derived. Otherwise, it comes off a little thin.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz can.

Pours an effervescent honey color with a thumb+ of cream colored head. Decent head retention & lacing

S: Grassy hops, crackery notes, a little citrus

T: Follows the nose, fairly restrained across the board. Grassyness, dry bready notes as well as orange peel once warm. Finishes with biscuitty dryness, faint citrus & a little crispness

MF Medium body, slight carbonation, alright balance

Thought this was better on draft, easy to to drink, but not one to get excited about
