Served pint at the brewpub this afternoon.

Poured a subtle copper color. Very much transparent. Head of white foam that quickly dissolved. Nose was essentially non-present. Picked out just a slight hint of hops. Flavor was very subtle for an American IPA. More akin to an English style with an amped up hop bill but not particularly bitter or powerful. Malts quickly overpowered any real bitterness. Medium mouthfeel.

I have a hunch this would be quite nice if served on cask and dry hopped.

Served on tap at the brewery. Appears a pale color, with a small head. The nose is lacking, but is bitter piney and resiny with a touch of citrus. The taste follows suit; very bitter, a small amount of late flavor. Overall, refreshing, but needs some work.
