Misc.: Born on March 11, 2013
Poured a caramel orange hazy color with two fingers of white frothy head. Very good layered khaki white lacing all the way down. Great retention of layered film all the way down.
Smelled sweet floral hops, lime citrus hops, pine, tropical fruit, faint resin hops and even some caramel malts. Clean, crisp and refreshing.
Tasted similar to the nose, not quite as strong as Iíd thought it would be. Almost tastes more like a pale ale than an IPA. Lime citrus hops, orange peel, orange, grapefruit, resin, pine.
Light body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Clean, crisp, watery abrupt finish with some bitterness lingering on the tongue after.
Iíve had this before and I thought it was a bit better, but I wasnít feeling it. This IPA just didnít impress me.

Floral citrus nose. Well hopped yet some maltiness as well. Citrus, pine and a touch of caramel. Overall solid

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very well rounded IPA. Beautiful on the nose, crisp with the hop without being too thin on the palate. I enjoy the robustness of Imperials more, but this is super solid.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle, seemed weak in every sense of the word for an IPA to be honest. ABV is equally weak. Not terrible, but tastes like what it is.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nicely balanced ipa. The malts are somewhat boring but the hop profile is slightly spicy and citrusy. Doesn't do anything wrong.

12 oz bottle: Appearance is golden brown with minimal off white head. Aroma is of floral hops. Taste is a concoction of floral and citrus hops with a nice malt backbone.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nothing particularly wrong with this. Definitely a great entry level IPA if you're trying to ease a newcomer into the style, but not all that impressive otherwise.
