UPDATED: DEC 10, 2013 Really nice winter IPA. Nice hoppiness without the astrigence of Sierra Nevada?s Celebration. Very, very drinkable.

Clear auburn pour with decent off-white head. Nice lace. Lovely fruit aroma. Nice bit of spice up front followed by sweet malt, citrus, and hop resin with a long, dry bitter finish. Solid brew.

A clear deep honey body sits beneath a tall creamy, mostly smooth off white head leaving fairly delicate, almost frothy lace with dimension

Mildly assertive, yet warm and smooth, a friendly mix of hops and smoothing malts, citrus heavy with tropical and lightly floral supporting layers backed by toasted, mellow malts on a smooth med-med light body with delicate residuals echoing the flavors

12oz best by 5th week of Feb 2014 at 45ļ into Spiegelau IPA glass

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber with a gold hue and a gray head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of citrus with a hint of resin and a light sweet grain backbone. Flavor begins with citrus that is joined by a hint of grapefruit and grass with a light grain backbone.

Nice sweet citrus aroma basic golden color. Now for the taste nice sweet malt followed by a hoppy burst a nice mix of the two. Not the best IPA available but would drink again.

Pour is a clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is a nice pine hop with some sweet malt. Flavor is more sweet malt with a nice hoppy backbone. Pretty straight forward IPA. Decent stuff.

kdm1984 (663) - Missouri, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Mild aroma of citrus and slight pine that becomes nuttier the more it sits in the glass. Pours deep orange with good head (finger-length) that stays around for awhile. Good lacing. Taste - some nutty malt; grapefruit and herbal hops. Finish started out a little fishy, but the more sips I take, the more itís just ending bitter. Somewhat watery palate. I was expecting perhaps a little spice or something for a winter seasonal, but this is a fairly standard IPA (could also qualify as an APA). Easy to drink. Nothing great, nothing horrible.

Pours clear golden copper with a soapy beige head. The aroma has mushy caramel malt, soap, citrus and lightly dank hops. It has a medium crisp body with modest amount of carbonation thatís pretty gentle. The flavor starts with crackery malt, dry caramel, some fruitiness and a hint of citrus. The finish is pretty astringent and adds some spicy / piny hops. Its a decent IPA.
