Aroma is on the thin side. Leaves a thin even layered head in the glass. Taste is smooth and definitely not overpowered for a winter ale. Respectable offering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It poured a copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was citrusy hoppy. The taste was a nice balance of citrus, fruity hoppiness and a caramel maltiness with a little bitterness. Very well done.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Unexpectedly good! Very fresh taste. Reddish amber. Sweet malty smell and taste is hoppy and malty at the same time.

tulip. bronze color with a clean body and tall and thin head. Smell like lemon zest and rustic metal. The flavor reflects the smell but a little bit of roasted pine nuts.
