3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Six pack of 12 oz. bottles. Clear golden and fairly active body with a lasting film of meringue on top. Nose of spicy pollen, caramel, lemon-orange zest and pine resin. Taste is caramel, light toasted grain, peppery citrus zest, mint, lemon grass and resin. Light-medium body is tingly and finishes well dry; has average-high carbonation but remains mostly smooth and sessionable.

Bartender poured a taste. Bitter, bland, lacked any IPA qualities. Tasted Devils Backbone Vienna Lager too. Both...yuck...have I filled up enough letters to post this comment?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small off white head with fair retention and a cute, little bit of stringy lace left behind. Clear, copper/gold hued brew. Nose is mild pine and citrus with some slight minerally notes. Body is medium with a tingly carbonation, little oily and juicy on the palate. Grainy malts are dry and a bit toasty. Light fruity, citrusy hop flavors, some leaf and pine. Dry finish with a tame bite. Just okay. 12oz. Bottle from statelineliquors.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
FROM NOTES: August 23, ’12.
From a 12 ounce bottle into a shaker pint glass.
A: Not a strong nose, but earthy and grassy hops with just a bit of pine and a touch of sweet malt.
A: Pours a clear orange-tinted amber with two fingers of off-white head. Good retention with some decent lacing.
T: Piney, resiny and slight grapefruit upfront, finishes with a bit of sweetness and very little aftertaste.
P: The body is a light medium, with a moderate carbonation.
O: Reminds me of DFH 60-M. A very solid flavorful everyday IPA.

16 ounce pint at DC Reynolds. Pretty decent ipa - balanced (almost too balanced to the point of being a little dull)

Bottle pour..fairly fresh bottled 10/2/13..light golden color..small head and amount of carbonation..hop aroma is best part going on with noticeable catty presence..mouthfeel is a bit thin with obvious bitter notes..and doesn’t live up to the nice hop aroma..a pretty tasty single ipa however..glad to be able to get more offerings from db..

Pretty good IPA. Not sure what the hop profile is, but it had a bit of spice to it. Overall worth trying.
