valpoaj (634) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2014
4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap pour - copper pour with a robust off white head, leaving considerable lacing. Aroma is full of fruity & resinous hops, caramelized malts and citrus - good stuff! Flavor is quite good as well...aggressively hopped, but the varietals meld well with the healthy dose of sweet malt. Mouthfeel is appropriate for the style, and this was quite the easy drinker. First experience from this brewery and I was not disappointed - excellent ’single’ IPA!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap: clean golden hue with small head and some lace. Juicy and nicely balanced with a biting alcohol cleansing. A bit leafy and resiny too. Aggressive mouth feel and metallic finish.
