Tap at Smokin’ Joes. Amber pour with a thick, sticky tan head. The nose is lightly sweet and quite piny as well. Subdued earthiness with a kiss of light fruit as well. Soflty hoppy with a kiss of sweetness on the back. Meh... too much crystal malt makes it overly chewy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, shared by Jay. Best by August 2013. It’s likely ultra fresh right now, but that seems like an awfully long window for an IPA.. Mostly clear amber color. Thin white head leaves good spray of lace. Medium body. Smooth texture. Just a light stickiness in the finish. Kind of a rye spicy hop flavor ( but no rye!). Sweet, light bitterness in the finish. Grapefruit citrus, some resin. Tasty, flavorful lighter ABV IPA. Spicy citrus flavor is nice. Very interesting tasty assertive hop profile, as it is.
