12oz bottle poured into a pint

Pours a light orange color. Crystal clear with some visible carbonation pushing north. A two finger off-white cap. Decent retention with sheets of lacing.

Floral and earthy notes with some light caramel and undercooked biscuits. A touch of pine needles pokes through, but the hop aroma is pretty subdued.

On the palate, soft caramel slides in with some floral and earthy hops. Undercooked, doughy biscuits through the middle. The finish is a blend of pine, earth, and flowers.

On the lighter side of medium. Clean and straightforward.

A pretty average IPA in all aspects.

Good beer, great value. One of Trader Joe’s private label beers, this IPA was produced by local favorite Firestone Walker under the alias Steinhaus Brewing. It’s a solid brew, with all of the hoppiness you expect. It’s no Pliny, but it wasn’t meant to be.

Pours a clear copper with a half inch cream head that dissipates slowly, leaving lines of lacing.

Caramel malt, toasted bread, dank hops, tart citrus, and resin form the aroma. Fairly catty, with notes of onion as it warms.

Sweet caramel malt dominates the flavor throughout. There's a dank hop character throughout, but it's overwhelmed by sweetness. Muted grapefruit and floral hops carry into a slightly bitter finish. Dank hops are also present.

Body is moderate, with moderate carbonation and an astringent finish.

Sweeter than I hoped. Hop character is overwhelmed somewhat. Though there's at least some slightly interesting flavoring hop presence.

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Cloudy golden yellow with lots of giant particles and a two-finger, white, foamy head that lasted a couple of minutes and left a nice film. Okay lacing.

S: Caramel malt with pine and citrus hops.

T: Light to moderate sweetness and solid bitterness. Pine and citrus hops. Sort of flat flavor with a touch of alcohol.

M: Light to medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Smooth.

O: Not a bad IPA. There were a bit too many particles for my taste, and the taste was kind of flat to me.
