12oz. bottle poured into a tumbler glass

A- A perfectly clear amber, with a big off white head. Fantastic lacing.

S- Citrus rind, mainly grapefruit but some orange as well. A bit of pine and earthyness. Caramel and biscuity malt are there as well.

T- Slap of bitterness is quickly balanced by the biscuity and slightly caramel malt sweetness. Bitterness creeps up through the finish.

M- A slick medium body, dries nicely on the finish but not overkill.

O- a very good standard IPA. Very much a ramped up version of Mirror Pond.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours a hazy deep amber with an off white head that laces nicely.

S: Sweet malt and pine and citrus hops, a little earthy.

T: Big hit of pine hops, some citrus as well, grapefruit and tangerine, a little caramel malt sweetness, and a lingering grapefruit and lemon grass bitterness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Was worried the hops might have faded out of this bottle as this bottle is about a month past it's best by date. Nope! Big in your face IPA. I can only wonder how much stronger it is fresh.

P- thanks to my buddy Todd for this brew.

A- honey amber color with a nice one and half finger foamy head. Gorgeous lacing lining my pint glass. Clear and translulcent as well.

S- floral, pine and lemon grass hop essences. faint caramel malts nicely complement the nose aromas.

F- strong floral and pine hops dominate the palate first followed by a lemongrass flavor with biscuit malt flavors with hints of caramel.

M- hoppy and lemony in the mouth and at times overbearing but decent. light-bodied

O-all is great...the mouthfeel drops a little but nice beer.
