Apples, pears, and peaches on the aroma. Pours a typical ipa copper with a decent lingering head. Tastes of pears, toffee, brown sugar, and c hops. A pretty good middle upper ipa.

Keg @ Sedona. Medium amber with a small head. The nose is a bit faded. A bit of caramel, honeyed apple. Mild citrus. Peaches. The taste is toasted pine. Caramel. Moderately bitter. Strong malt presence. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, not In peak form probably. Sort of meh-inducing.

What a wonderful beer. Thick off white head and full of hop flavors throughout the drink. Aroma is on point, smells of grapefruit and hints of mango.

I have drank this beer hundreds of times and just take it for granted but it is one of the best beer in Bmore and ipaís over all. Pour is a cloudy amber with a creamy off white head that fingers the glass. Aroma is clean and hoppy with a nice malt presents. What is great about this beer is it has a smooth malt and hop blend that is full flavor and hoppy but the bitterness is toned down so most people can enjoy.

Solid ipa. This beer has a good even mouthfeel and is very grassy. The head was disappointing.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear golden orange color with a huge 3 fingers of foamy white head. The head settled to a finger that stuck around for a while with good lacing. Aroma of light citrus hops, and white bread. Taste of sweet bready malt, citrus, bitter grapefruit, and some floral hops.

On tap at Time Out. Pours coppery with little foam into tulip. Strong lacing. Delicate apricot aroma with little else. Creamy start with pine, hop, and orange rind. Clean hop bite with crisp carbonation. Decent if uncomplicated.

This pours a light orange, mostly clear with a small head of off white foam that fell reasonably to a thin cap and ring. Left good wet lace. The nose on this is pretty shy and the best by date is november of this year. Thereís some sweet orange and tart grapefruit up front and a sweet caramel malt with plenty of bread underneath that. The hops are herbal with a soft spice in back. There isnít much pine on the nose but a few needles if you really get down in the glass and so I think it has faded a bit. The malt is developing a grainy sugary quality as it warms. Taste is mild and very good. Flows with the sweet and tart citrus up first to greet the palate and give a little pucker. Then the malt is full, flowing and breaddy with ample sweetness to carry all that to a nice finish with a bit of pine and hop oil for a gentle bitter at the back of the throat. Lingers clean and with a bit of spice.
I think this a an amenable IPA. Itís not fantastic or tremendous in any way but it is refreshing and a solid example of the style. Body is smooth and has good balance although it leans toward the malt a bit and is therefore a touch heavy on the palate.
