Appears golden orange and clear with minimal head or lacing out of can poured into glass. Smell is a balance of straightforward malt and hops. Nothing complex, really. Taste is same, with crisp mouthfeel, but not too dry given the ABV. There is an initial metallic taste, but a few sips in and this disappears. Fairly basic and straightforward, but a solid balanced IPA and one I'm happy to say is fairly local for me.

While not a stellar IPA, it definitely is a solid one. Scores just above average in every category in my opinion. If given the opportunity though, I'd go with their Blizzard of Hops.

Very drinkable, crisp/bitter IPA. Great for a hot summers day. Somewhat lacking for citrus taste and aroma lovers. Unfortunately for the rating my wife (my crossover IPA guide) would prefer a Sam's Rebel. I still rate it VERY GOOD.

Pours a yellow orange color so clear you can read through it. White head about a finger thick, dissipated to a solid layer over the beer with a little lacing on the glass. Smells of floral notes and pine. Tastes, first the sweet malts but quickly into hop bitterness. Citrus and herbal notes. Medium body, well carbonated, lively beer. Overall very nice IPA.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a golden hew with a inch and a half head. Very clear with lots of bubbles.

Aroma is herbal with a biscuit malt note.

Taste is more herbal bitter hops.

Very good IPA.
