Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Clear gold in color, with a nice billowy head of off-white foam.
Aroma-Faint citrus
Taste-Floral, herbal hops, toasted malt.
For an American IPA the hops are pretty muted and subtle, more like an English IPA. I expected a little more out of this beer. It's not horrible, just not great, in my opinion.

12 oz. bottle with no date

nose is wheat and hay with the hops in the background. less hop than expected. taste is subdued. more of a straight up pale than an AIPA. malt and bitter is what comes through at first. hops don't come in till later. very floral but in the background. maybe more subtle than subdued. knocking it down a bit because of a somewhat unpleasant, lingering, aftertaste. this is a very crisp beer, with the right amount of carbonation.

The taste of this beer left me puzzled, definitely not what i was expecting. It's not bad but very middle-of-the-road, especially put up against the likes of Surly, Stone, etc. Still wouldn't mind finding it in a cooler on a hot day.

Aroma is soft - more of a malt presence than expected. Biscuits, grain... hops aren’t too agressive but neatly balanced. Pours a golden orange with a finger of creamy white head. Initial flavor is abstract and bitter, far less balanced than the nose. Not bad though. This could certainly pass as a American pale. Probably wouldn’t seek this out but I’ll likely try the rest of the line-up since they’re on sale at Zipp’s :)

A- light golden straw with finger of fluffy white head. Minimal lacing.

S- muted hops blend well with tropical citrus.

T- well balanced, not overly hoppy with a good blend of citrus tropical fruits.

M- very well balanced, nice medium body and was very smooth.

O- decent beer, I prefer hoppier IPA's but this had a nice blend. Would have again, nothing special though. May be good for those who don't usually like IPAs.
