COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our traditional small batch IPA is cask conditioned, dry hopped, hand pulled, and served at cellar temperature (55Ā°). Coppery-gold hue with a full floral cascade hop aroma. Rich bready malts lay a perfect foundation for the profusion of tangy, citrusy hops that infuse this beer with a distinct ruby-red grapefruit quality that starts on the palate and lingers through a long satisfying finish.

Starts with an aroma of citrus hops, with a sweet malt smell behind it. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small head. Nice blending of hops in the flavor, with a nice long finish. A good solid IPA.

ChiGuy68 (426) - Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured an unclear amber with an off-white head and plentiful lacing. Contained some sediment which may be an indication of an older bottle. A very subtle aroma of lemon zest. Well hopped taste with a bitter finish.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber/copper with an off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, some pale and caramel malts, and some tin. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not good.

Holtguy (129) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle, pours cloudy orange with white head. Aroma of pine and citrus with floral notes. Flavor is fairly standard for an IPA. Grapefruity, some malt backbone. Fairly decent. Slightly bitter. Not bad, not great. I think I’m underwhelmed.

Cask - Light orange and earthy hops. Cloudy gold with a nice white head. Nice orange and earthy flavors, balanced caramel sweetness and a slight bitter finish. Nice.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, honey, biscuit, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, lemon/orange zest, light pine, caramel, honey, biscuit, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and robustness of citrus hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with smooth, moderately creamy, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice IPA. Good complexity and robustness of citrus hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Pour out of 12.oz bottle, hazy orange red pour with white head, aroma brought pine, grass, some bread, caramel, hints of orange as well. Taste is a mix of orange, caramel, toffee, hints of pine, grass, finishing bitter. Eh.
