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.

Poured from a bottle into a pint. A deep yellow color with a thin head, but nice lacing. A pleasant floral smell. The taste is floral and a bit piney. Not a bad IPA!

This was above average for me. I wasn't extremely impressed but j would buy/recommend again. Very light, maybe due to me drinking it out of the bottle so no aroma was available.

Poured from tap minimal head. Nice lacing. Pick up mild citrus notes. Nice malt backbone. This is more on the dank side. Has a real nice balance with a nice bitter finish. I can't believe I have not been drinking more from this brewery
