3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep golden brown on tap with fluffy cream colored head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is nice piney and earthy hops with a good malty backbone. Taste follows, light and refreshing, good caramel back end, just a hint of bitterness. A good, easy drinking IPA from a brewery that does mostly lagers.

This IPA has some very nice flavor; Iíd like to know the full hop blend they use because I am a big fan of the citrus notes being as up front as they are here.
Honestly, my only issue with this beer is that it feels a little light and the mouthfeel isnít quite as crisp as I expect of an IPA with this sort of flavor.
The hop blend, color, and smell are reminiscent of west coast IPAs in the vein of Green Flash, but the body and mouthfeel arenít quite at the level that the flavor is.
I happen to prioritize flavor, so I have this baby every time I see it on draft, but I wish I could tell the brewer to try a bit of a thicker, maltier batch to put some body behind the spectacular flavor balance.

a decent IPA- pours a bit light for my IPA tastes and is somewhat light bodied as well. I suppose for a brewery that specializes in lagers an IPA on the lighter side makes sense. taste is good- pretty balanced. Hoppy but no overly so. definitely one of the more interesting offerings in the flight, but i am partial to ales so no suprise there. would order a pint if I were out and saw it on tap. support the little guy brewing down the road from oskar blues......

draft amber color with minimal head. pleasant hop aroma with malt backing. the flavor is smooooth hops not very bitter after using 5 different hops in this ipa. not sure how he did it but this is very good ipa that doesnít bite back. another very drinkable beer.

Growler. Copper colored pour. Good hop presence in the aroma, garden weedy, citrusy, some pith. Nice bitter flavor. Fuller mouthfeel. Good IPA
