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

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2012 On tap at The Flying Saucer in Little Rock. Pours a clear, deeper golden colored body with an inch thick, dense, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is slightly spicy earth and grapefruits with a bit of a stale orange and a light grass alongside a medium sweet bready caramel. A slight onion note from the hops with a few florals in there too. Flavor is medium-light sweet caramel with a slight breadiness and a good amount of grassy, slightly earthy grapefruit hops. Some orange notes as well and no onion thankfully. Finishes pretty dry with a few resins, florals, and a medium bitterness with some grapefruit and a lightly spiced earthiness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA. Fairly dry and bitter with some grapefruit earth and resins alongside a bready caramel malt backing. The aroma gave off a bit of a weird note, but the flavor was better. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a snifter. Golden to amber with a finger of head that held well.
A blunt citrus; mostly lemon smell. There is a malty smell lurking in the background but he never really comes out to play.
Greeted with a medium bitterness, followed by honey and grapefruit. A balanced, straightforward profile.
Crisp, bubbly and medium bodied.
This is an easy drinking IPA. When you are looking for a classic IPA to throw back, here it is.

Certainly not a very bitter IPA, but looks and tastes nice. The flavor starts out a bit malty/grassy but gets much better as it goes along. Overall, it’s a pretty good beer.
