Amber color with a bit of haze. Frothy, but small head which settles to rim bubbles. Webs for lace.

Harsh cactus-like hop bite to the nose. Very little malt nose.

Earthy start, a bit like dirt. The hop bitterness stays in the background until the swallow. Better balance than the smell would indicate. The aftertaste lasts a moderate time.

Poured from a bottle dated best by 4/16/16. Slightly amber gold beer, with a big frothy white head and bigger bubbles that I'm not used to. Very Nice webby lacing that makes its way all around the glass. Little bubbles rising up to the top throughout the entire duration of the drink.

Smell is faint and lends itself toward a heavier hop profile than expected, mixed with some pale malty aromas. Not much citrus or zest going on or anything else bright. Taste confirms the above and brings out the heavier feel in this beer. It is light bodied, but is leaving an unpleasant syrupy taste on the back of the tongue and throat, maybe I'm just feeling sick (I am), but really kinda disappointed. The drink is carbonated so its easy to take a big gulp but wasn't very rewarding after.

Maybe it's not the right batch but it seems like a really syrupy, standard IPA even though it looks pretty. I'll give it another try one day, haven't been totally turned off of the brewery quite yet either.

12oz bottle poured into an IPA glass.

A: Red-orange in color, and on the darker side. Very mild haze. Thick and creamy off-white head retains well. Sheets of thick and sticky lacing.

S: Passion fruit, pomegranate, melon, blood orange, mango. Sweet bud. Bubblegum. Caramel and candy shell malt.

T: Earthy and leafy up front. Sticky bud in a big way. Melon and kiwi. Blood orange, sugared grapefruit, mango, peach, passion fruit. Medium level of bitterness. Bubblegum. Yeast comes through a bit. Malt base counters with a big caramel character and some nutty toast. Juicy hop finish.

M: Sturdy medium body. Full in the mouth with a sense of heft. Creamy and chewy. Plenty of fine, expressive carbonation adds a good bite.

O: Well rounded and well balanced, but it still manages to fully showcase the sexy side of the hops used. Hop complexities are deep and delicious. Mighty fine drinking.

Appearance: Pours out a nice clear dark golden color, filled with some active carbonation in the middle and topped off with a thick foamy off white head. Mild lacing.
Smell: Strong citrus and grapefruit aromas, mild grassy smells and hops.
Taste: grapefruit rinds, lemon zest mixed with other citrus fruits. It’s mildly spicy and bready.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with some great carbonation.
Overall: Nice balanced IPA, not overly hoppy and has a sweet overall citrusy profile.

From a growler, pours a very clear reddish-orange. Big 3-finger off white head is dense and creamy, leaving a good-looking skein of lacing. Smell is initially citrus, grapefruit and orange, with musty, damp earth coming through the fruit, and as it warms strawberry, peaches and the tiniest blueberry note. Underneath is a very little hint of sweet malt.

Taste is initally grapefruit, with some berry flavors poking through, then a wave of bready yeast, followed by a slightly piny, grapefruit finish. Bitterness is mild to moderate, and is balanced by a little sweetness, though I wouldn't say this was a sweet beer, which I almost expected with the deep malty color.

Feel is exceptionally smooth, with good offsetting carbonation that prevents it from being overly watery. Some slightly sticky, resinous feel in the finish that's offset with juicy wetness. Delicious IPA. Not out to punch you in the mouth, this beer has a lot going on and is really well put together.
