3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wowzers, I finally finally get to try this. It has been on my ‘wants’ list for years. Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a nice clear gold body that supports a light tan head. The mild aroma offers up snippets of spicy hops, a touch of grapefruit and then just a hint of sweet malts. The taste has a nice bitterness that is mostly grapefruit and orange like citrus hops and then to midway and into the finish a sliver of malt sweetened citrus hop flavor comes to the surface to round this out with a touch of balance. This is a pretty darn tasty IPA.

Bottle at Damgoode pies. Pours dark orange with a thin white head. Not much on the nose but a bit of pine that fades real quick. Not much on the tongue. I’ve never been this bored by an IPA.

This is not as strong as a typical IPA but for my first foray into IPA beerdom it was a welcome brew. I really enjoyed the copper tone and the thick hoppy head that stays well.

To me this is a great non mass market IPA. Has a good flavor, aroma and color. Lots of people rate this IPA low but I think most are use to mass market IPAs
