Draft - Sweet caramel and hops. Clear gold with almost no head. Bitter and sweet with orange and some really odd notes. Smells ok, but tastes pretty poor.

I didnít like this IPA as much as the pale ale. Reddish amber with a thin head. Hops were fruity, a bit tropical. Fairly sweeter caramel and fruit flavors with understated hops. Peppery persimmon is the most I got out of it.

Draft at BJís Tysons Corner. Pours clear amber with a moderate, frothy off-white head. Smells like pine, grapefruit, and resin hops with biscuit, straw malt, and pear. Tastes like strong hop bitterness, sweet malt, and fruity. Dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that retained as a thin film. The nose is balanced evenly between the caramel malt and citrusy hops. The flavor is pretty well the same up front, but the sweet malt wins out towards the finish, and thereís that weird chemical flavor that comes on late in the finish again. This starts out ok, but the finish just ruins it. Medium bodied with a slight cling on the back end. Fizzy prickly carbonation. Pretty boring IPA.

"Nice, balanced ipa. Not huge on the hops or bitterness, but the hop profile (while light) was quite complex. Fruity sweet grapefruit, tropical fruit, floral, and pine. Just mellower. Decent malty backbone as well. Not great, but Iíd get again."
