12oz bottle bb 10/31/18 poured into a nonic pint glass at fridge temp 7.7% ABV 70 IBU. The beer pours bright copper tinted amber with abundant light tan head. The head recedes to a thin, but complete, cap and laces the glass very nicely. The aroma is faint with a hint of yeast and caramel. The taste is semisweet caramel and earthy hops in a balancing act. Neither really overcomes the other before the medium bitter and dry finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and adequately carbonated. Overall, good. This is, most likely, a loose or Americanized version of an English IPA. It's pleasant and would be good with food. I would prefer some distinct English hop notes.

12 oz bottle from Ohio with a 28 August 2018 BB date stamp served in a pint glass in early August 2018.
Pours clear amber with high clarity and a fine, creamy, white head. Great lacing and decent retention.
Interesting aroma with some alcohol esters and spicy hops.
Mild+ bitterness for style. In a world of a zillion IPAs, this one is well balanced and distinctive. .
Medium body with near medium carbonation.
Overall: a fine IPA.

Bottle. I wasn’t expecting to like this but here I am. A big, sweet, TRVE IPA. This beer is frailty fresh but it smells like an old west coast IPA in a way. Subdued op presence and a ton of malt. Flavor is sweet with some goo bite. I enjoy the malt complexity. Sneaky bitterness and hidden ABV. English IPA!

Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip glass. A 2" off white head drops slowly with moderate lacing. Color is cloudy orange with plenty of streaming carbonation. Aroma strongly citrus -- pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, also a bit of apple cider and biscuit dough. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and sticky with an astringent finish leaving some alcohol burn on the tongue and throat. Flavor is a little more balanced than the aroma -- hops are still predominate with orange, pineapple, lemon, pine, citrus peel, along with biscuit and cracker malts. Overall: a well done American IPA.

Good IPA. Nothing out of the ordinary but a nice drinking beer that's neither too sweet or bitter. I always have some of their beers in stock at home and at my summer place. Quality beers at rational prices. $9 for a six pack and always easy to find...can't beat that. Try it!

Pours a nice light amber color with a nice head and lacing. Aroma had hoppy hints, the taste follows the nose with a nice hoppy flavor. A light bodied well carbonated beer.
