Bottle - via Ale in the Mail. Light copper color, clear. Clean, somewhat hoppy aroma. Really good. Very hoppy though with some maltiness too.

Pours deep golden brown--looking good so far--but sadly disappoints with minimal aroma, flat flavor profile and thin body and seltzer-like mouth feel. Boring.

Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours an amber-copper color with a huge white head that has fantastic retention. Over time the billowy head slowly fades over time to give a nice amount of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is a nice mix of sweet and hoppy. A sweet tropical fruit aroma of tangerine, mango, and papaya mix with some citrus hop aromas as well as a lighter earthy smell.
Taste – The taste starts out quite bready, with less sweetness then would have been anticipated from the nose. With the bready flavor is a lighter citrus flavor as well as a very light caramel taste. As the taste advances further the bready flavor fades some while the citrus hop grows stronger. With the citrus comes some earthy and pine hop flavors as well. In the end these flavors all combined to leave a citrus and earthy flavor in the mouth.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the creamier side with a carbonation level that is slightly below average. Both are quite nice for the hop and bready flavors and make for a good feeling brew.
Overall – A nice drinking IPA with a smooth taste and good feel.

Not bad, maybe I’ll give it a better rating drinking it from a glass next time. More words

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark bronze, creamy head. Nice "beery" aroma of the outdoors -- malty and rich, with a decidedly tannic finish ... like oaken citrus maybe? Thick and viscous for sure. (#5570, 7/4/2014)

From a bottle. Pours almost clear copper with a bubbly frothy off white head. Smells like sweet, nutty, orange hops, with some roasted caramel and booze. Tastes malty, nutty, like roasted grains and alcohol.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
An orange to amber color with a white head. Aroma contains some caramel with a hint of citrus. The flavor is only slightly bitter if at all with a ton of caramel going on. Slightly oxidized which makes no sense since this brewery is new to town. Overall bleh. Misery aint far off brother

A bite of hop balanced out with a smooth malt characteristic. A very pleasant IPA.
