Good brew, just feel like it's missing something to make it stand out.

Poured from 12oz Appearance: clear gold, 1 FB white foam quickly dissipates. Aroma: fruity hops, citrus, slight toasted malt. Taste: beautiful grapefruit , citrus hops that tapers but lasts. Nice toasted malt at end. Mouthfeel: medium body with moderate CO2. Overall: very nice, clean, crisp IPA. Well done.

Poured from a single bottle dated best before July 4th, 2016. Orange-gold and slightly hazy beer, thin white bubbly head. Smell is not pungent. Just a little citrus, bread and alcohol. Taste is spectacular though, especially cold. Clean citrus notes, just a little hops on the back of your tongue and mouth, and a nice refreshing, thirst quenching gulp that entertains your entire pallet. Very nice feel, came out of left field. Awesome beer due to taste and feel alone. Dialed in, this one. Very sessionable, dangerously so. Great job.

Taste - Solid pale ale. Sessionable despite ABV

Look: saw sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Orange/Amber color. cloudy, but a nice 3/4 inch head. Smell floral/fruity hops. Taste: not enough IBU to be a good IPA for me. Mouth feel was a bit watery. I'll pass

Nice IPA.

Cloudy Apple-cider color pour. Minimal head but very nice lacing. Typical piny IPA smell. For my palate about the perfect amount of hop bitterness. You know you've had an IPA...but don't feel like you've chewed on a plant root.

Surprisingly nice - particularly as this isn't one of my favorite breweries.
