Got this in a Utah grocery store, which means it's ABV is a slightly lower 4%, though that likely doesn't make too big of a difference. The head and lacing left on the glass were really great for the ABV - it's rare to see a beer this low in ABV with this good of a head. The carbonation comes through in the taste maybe a bit too heavily though. The smell is quite strong, stronger than the taste, which, although not mild, is definitely not as potent as the smell. It's definitely got a good bit of hoppy bite to it to remind that it's an IPA, though it was 4 months past its best-by date, which means it may be a tad bit muted. I do wonder how long that means it's been sitting there. It still tasted pretty good though! Comes off as a respectable session IPA - it didn't blow me away, but it's very drinkable. Would like to try a fresher bottle.

Rocky, dish soap head with unbelievable retention. Murky golden color. Smell is muted...was hoping for more aromatic hops. Taste is pleasant...piney, grassy, spicy. Nice tang in the mouthfeel. Hint of caramel. Beautiful IPA, particularly for Utah's 4% grocery store requirement. Bottled, poured into glass mug.

Pours a hazy gold color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of slight piney hops, floral hops, hint of spicy hops, citrus hops, hint of wheat, and a hint of sweet malt. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of floral hops, slight grass, hint of spicy hops, slight piney hops, hint of earthy malt, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, a little too earthy/grassy, but still good body, appearance, and complexity.

-spiegelau ipa glass.

A: A feverish pitch of effervesce rages within the vessel, rising rapidly for a lively show. Glowing orange color, light haziness, with a dirty, soapy white head sitting atop at two fingers with a strong rate of retention.

S: Sweet orange and lemony fragrance, nice strength. Light fresh barley grains and wet pine.

T: Citrusy orange hops for flavor upfront are followed by a some wet pine and some caramel sweetness. Buttered grains proceeds a bitterness of citrus, dry orange peel, and some wet grassy hops. Very well toned, grainy with a lingering bitterness of dry flowery hops concludes things.

M: Sharp and feverish carbonation, provides a good snap on the tongue. The body is light, soft and buttery feel, with a good edgy factor on the tongues edges.

O: Nice hoppiness factor,and flavor at 4.2% , sharp and flavorful with a good bittering factor for what it is, a session ipa, rather ipa. Good causal drinker.

Light gold with a light haze. Nice, one-finger head. Scattered spots.

Crisp, piney to grapefruit hop nose.

Decent, middle-of-the-road iPA. It's a bit more carbonated than I like. Relatively dry with mildly bitter finish.

Drank straight from the bottle. Had a grapefruit flavor and a little taste of what I think was pine. Interesting profile with a smooth finish. Don't like too many IPAs but this is good and I would have it again.
