Pours to a deep amber-orange color and thin white head with bits of lace. Aroma is bursting with citrusy domestic hops and sweet malt aromas. Flavor delivers strong hoppiness and supporting caramel malt backbone, as one expects in an IPA. Finishes pleasantly bittersweet.

On tap at the tasting room. Opaic golden body, whipped cream like head. Smell is of musty cat pee, moldy citrus- stop using pellets, and get fresh hops please. Taste is watery hay, grapefruit rind, and pithy bitter. Mouthfeel was creamy with prickly carbonation. This is a rather uninspired IPA, little to no fresh hop aroma, little to no hop taste. Do you guys know what is going on in the rest of the US?

Served in a standard shaker at the tap room at the Brewery on 3/24/13. Pours a very hazy soft copper color with a very bubbly off-white head. Does not allow much light penetration. The smell is very subdued for an IPA with more bready malt smell than the hops. The hops a somewhat spicy and earthy overall with a little bit of soft flower smell to it. The taste was again surprisingly mild on the bitterness bill and very sweet overall. The malt just stood out a lot and the flavor was not quite astringent, but there was something off to it. The mouthfeel was soft with just a slight alcohol burn to it I didn't expect. I've had this beer before and really didn't think much to it, but this was a little bit off to me. I'll keep at it while I live in Little Rock, but it really did not do well on my palate.
