Poured into a snifter. Fairly hazy but not turbid. Golden-amber color with a thick and long-lasting off-white head. Citrus aroma - mainly lemon/lime and orange. Slight bready malt as well. The citrus was up front on the taste was well. Bright and bitter, balanced with some subtle earthy notes and a slightly sweet bready malt.Crisp, dry finish.

16oz can.

Pours clear copper with a moderate head and retention. Pine and grapefruit in the nose with a hint of coriander. Medium bodied with a crisp mouthfeel. West coast hops on the palate, grapefruit and pine with some sweet malt to balance and a firm bitterness. Finishes with fading earthy pine and some crystal malt.

A pretty mainstream but sub-par by today's standards IPA.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

16 oz. can poured into willibecher.

A- Hazy and dark gold in color. Head is bubbly and towering. Off-white, good lacing. Decent retention.

S- A bit resinous and piney. Faint sweet citrus, and the malt background is lightly bready.

T- Well balanced flavor, bready with a bittersweet citrus and pine hop character.

M- Body is medium. Carbonation is a bit low. Bittersweet throughout, with a lingering bitterness.

O- Not a bad beer. It doesn't stand out, though it's fairly well balanced and drinkable.

Canned January 23rd 2018. Thanks go to Wasatch!

P
Pours a lightly hazed straw gold with 2 finger head of foam, fairly vigorous pour.

Smells hoppy, both pine and grapefruit involved. Little bit of toasted/cracker malt.

Taste comes through with pine and grapefruit, cracker and bready malt give some balance.

Nice mouthfeel, nice IPA that's easy drinking.

Thanks John!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Look: golden amber with an off white head that fades away and leaves decent lacing

Smell: Wow, impressive smell, loads of tropical fruit, citrus, and underlying hops, definitely this beers strongest characteristic.

Taste: definitely sweet, maltiness is noticeable, touch of hops, touch of citrus.

Feel: could stand to be a bit more crisp but it works

Overall: A bit sweet and there's a lot going on here but there's just enough balance to make it work. Reminded me of a scaled back version of Evil Twin's Molotov Cocktail. Not a great beer but not bad either and definitely better than it's rated here in my opinion.

Acquired via trade from Wasatch so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 16oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep golden brown color with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains grassy hops, citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a grassy hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid IPA to drink for a while.

Light honey colored body with a thick, creamy, white head. Floral and fruity hop aroma. Mild malt sweetness infused with a complementary hop bitterness adding balance. Medium-heavy body; crisp and mostly dry yet with a low-key malt sweetness, too.

I was expecting a so-so IPA based on past experiences with Eddyline beers, yet this IPA comes across as solid if a bit unremarkable. There was no dating information on the can and the aroma, while distinct, was pretty subdued. The looks were killer. The taste was good but falls into the middle-of-the-pack with most high IBU beers on the market now. And who knows what the Bros tasted back in 2013 (although the current offering is 70 IBUs and the ABV comes in at 7.0% vs the 75 IBU and 7.8 ABV in the 2013 BA review). Regardless, the current version does the job...

Clear honey gold color with two fat fingers of off-white head that leaves thick rings of lacing.

Melon, light pepper and orange in both the aroma and taste. Light caramel malts and a touch of flavor as wells, with moderate hop bitterness lingering in the aftertaste.

Medium bodied with very slight prickliness in the feel. This is a solid, well-balanced, easy-drinking IPA. Canned on 1/19/17.
