I guess my original review didn't save, in any case...

This is the first IPA I ever purchased, due to prestige of brewery and price. It makes a good starter IPA if you're wary of the super bitter, piney IPAs out there.

Poured into a Spiegelau glass:

L - reddish-orange with a good finger or two of head that dissipates quickly.

S - citrus, fruit, some biscuit malt and pine, more sweet than sharp/bitter like more pronounced IPAs.

T - Starts malty smooth, very fruity, almost like an amber, then has a slight hoppy finish to qualify it as an IPA.

M - Light/medium body, slight carbonation but a very drinkable session IPA.

O - As mentioned, a good starter IPA. Not too bitter, not too malty sweet. A good go-to IPA that's more like a pale ale, but definitely "tasty."

Poured into a plastic cup (desperate times call for desperate measures). Very beautiful color, amber with nice head. Not much of an aroma. Too carbonated. I feel like its not hoppy enough for an IPA but its drinkable and would be something that someone that doesn't normally like IPAs would like and would be able to drink. Refreshing. Had two but wouldn't buy it again.

This was my first offering from this brewery and I tend to be partial to IPA's and usually try any new one I can get my hands on. This didn't dissapoint with great color, smell and hits you with a mild hoppiness. I would pick up again.

Pours a very pretty golden orange hue with an offwhite head that leaves a lot of lacing. First smell is of citric fruits, lemon drop candy, floral hops, and fresh picked berries. Flavors of dry grain, grass, slight honey malt, and a hint of fruitiness to round things out. Mouthfeel is a tad bit thin, but overall I'd say this is underrated (likely due to the lack of in your face hops). Enjoyable and a great value.
