Cask gravity at GBBF 2015. Deep amber colour lasting beige head. Now that is quite nice pear drops pine resin. Lovely balanced. Best American ipa so far.

Pours a hazy amber from a can, sweet piney aroma, metallic bitter flavor, thin mouthfeel. Meh.

Very hooped, but not obnoxiously. Nice roasted malt provides a good foil for the piney bitterness. Good effort from Baxter, my first from them.

They are calling this West Coast style, but seems a little closer to an English style IPA. Lighter orange semi-cloudy appearance. Malt to hop balance leaning more towards the malts on this one. Some bitter citrus in the aroma and finish. I’ve tried four of Baxter’s brews now in their 12-pack vareity, and I usually judge a new brewery that I try on their IPA. I’d say that these guys are good and above average, but not great.

Nice Amber pour and decent lacing and head retention. Solid malt back and mild bitterness but clean finish. Nice IPA
