This should be the reference for an IPA. Tastes amazing! I wish it had better availability here in Maryland. Really nice hop balanced with the malt backbone. A joy to drink.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rich aroma of orange peel, malt, bread, a little pine or rosemary. Appearance is a clear, burnt orange, minimal head that laces on the glass. Somewhat viscous body that slides over the tongue, leaving it’s rich taste behind to linger in a long finish. Lively but soft carbonation. A nice balance of rich body, slight sweet notes of currant, with an exploding carbonated dry bitterness A long, dry finish turns from slightly sweet to strong, dry bitter, leaving a clean lingering taste that lasts.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a burnt orange with gold highlights and a good sized white head, plenty of lacing on the glass. Aroma is definitely on the fruity side of hoppy with mango, orange, lemon, and a subtle pine but not much. Definitely fresh and inviting. The flavor shows a bit of malt as well with some biscuit, breadcrust and caramel, but it’s the citrusy hops that dominate. Finishes very flavorful with a well managed bitterness and flavors of toast, grapefruit, orange, and nuts? I dunno. Mouthfeel is easy going and unassuming yet gets good points for that. Great beer that maybe didn’t wow me, but I can recognize excellence when I drink it.

Had this beer in Dallas. Sharp amber color and good level of hops. Pair up nicely with fish and chips. Nice citrus taste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rusty amber orange with a nice head. Nose is citrus, tropical fruits and pine. Taste is full of flavor, not terribly bitter and finishes smoothly on a sweet note. Alcohol well masked, drinks as a lighter IPA with a lower ABV. Quite nice from a great microbrewer. Quaff Score 9 / 10

Pours a hazy golden orange with a white head and nice aroma of citrus and hops. Taste is of hops, citrus, and pine, while subtle, with a slight bitter, smooth finish. Very nice IPA, drinkable and great tasting.

Ah, finally, an IPA that is really good. Seems a lot of the "hey lets make a brewery" brewers are producing things that are labelled IPA, but really taste like old stale hops! Don’t get me wrong, you have a few out there that are making some really great IPAs and this is one of them. Clean, fresh, bitterly hoppy, foamy, citrusy......hits all the marks! Really nice IPA!!! I’m drinking one now!!!!!
