Tap at brewery. Pours light Amber, white head with good retention. Aroma is floral, interesting almost sage like, a bit of caramel sweetness. Taste is earthy, pine, sage, a bit of faintly toasted malts. Not bad. Moderately bitter. Clean.

Rich amber color. Clear. Barely a white film . No lace. Smells like a beer at first the gets malty real quick. Definitely east coast style.

This beer makes me happy and sad. Happy that Steve Anderson based it on a recipe he created for Waterloo. Sad that he is now gone.
Tasted like it may have had tears mixed in it.
Drinking it and toasting with it as dear friends reminisced about Steve at his memorial. Drinking it with BBQ and other sides while still talking about Steve and all other things.

On draft at Barley-Hoppers. Pours a very murky darkish gold with a lasting, creamy, white head and strong lacing. Nose is root beer, medicinal... not what you would expect from an ipa. Taste has similar cream soda/root beer characteristics with little bitterness or hoppiness, leaves a little sweet aftertaste. Nice slick mouthfeel, good carbonation. Tasty, but I wouldn’t call it an ipa.

Can poured to pint glass. Golden/copper, small, constant bubbles. Piney, sappy hops, agave? Just enough malt profile while not being bitter, really refreshing finish.

12 oz can while standing in line at LA Barbecue, Austin, TX. Aroma is citrus, mild pine, malt. After drinking a few Lone Stars, the bitterness was quite lingering of course it is also 92 degrees at 11 am. Anyhow the overall flavor was big on citrus with good malt support. Has a lightly drying texture. Or maybe the drying comes from this Texas heat, not sure.

Can. Pours a dark orange with a high, medium-grained, cream-colored head with lace. Nose is spruce, lime, and a wide variety of floral notes; not very strong, but with a definite personality. Really big bitter punch on the front of the tongue, followed by round citrus notes (orange, lime) and a slight floral edge. Moves into herbal bitterness on the back of the tongue. A definite chained beast; the mild nose belies the intensity of the flavor. Finish is smooth and very long. An excellent basic IPA.
