32 oz. crowler, consumed on 11-14-15. Pours a hazy, pale brass with a large amount of long-lasting, uneven, off-white to cream-colored head. The color is a bit boring, but the head and lacing make up for it. Produces good lacing. Nice, classically West Coast American, piney, herbal, dank aroma. Also yeasty. Good, dank, herbal, mineral, slightly-bitter, hops-dominated flavor. Sawdust. Some lemony citrus. A touch of apricot. Bread dough. Dry, bitter finish. Very nice hops effect but little going on underneath. Medium body. Quite lively in the palate. The liveliness is good but the palate effects otherwise are ordinary. Simple and not amazing but an above average and overall impressive IPA.

Good god. On tap at the source. Golden light orange, slight haze, head has nice structure. Big on tropical fruit, some melon, pineapple. Dry texture, but the flavors linger in a big way. Smooth carb. Wonderful.

On tap at source, piurs hazy vibrant golden yellow with medium white head and nice lacing. Aroma of pineapple, juicy mango, honey, and other tropical stuff. Flavor is beautiful and dank hopping, lots of kiwi and other citrus fruits. Perfectly balanced. Awesome batch of Nelson hop juice.

On tap a couple of different places. No detailed notes - just noticed I’ve never entered it. Good session IPA - less bitter than Fixie, but similarly balanced.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crowler filled 2 days ago. Pours hazy golden with a small white head that fizzles quickly. Aroma is sweet honey and light floral grassy hops. Flavor follows with some bland sweet malts and honey, hardly any bitterness from the hops, extremely watery. Super light bodied, lowish carbonation. Overall this was a real disappointment. Crank is truly world class. A lot of these other IPAs they’ve come up with at Cycle are just subpar as can be.
