Dark golden orange. Graham cracker and bread dough with pepper and some spice. Older hops, a bit of brown sugar. Decent mouthfeel. Very light malt presence and ultra light hops. Pretty much a pine cone and pine needle taste throughout. Low IBU.

Sorry guys this is more like a hop heads nod. Nice orange grapefruit rind flavors. Some citrus on the tongue. In general seems citrus sour. I wouldn’t call it west coast or even my kind of IPA. Thin head.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pours pale to medium amber with nice off-white head. Mild, slightly citrusy, hop aroma with some malt intermingled. Pleasant opening. Light, slightly fruity and tart resolving into nice balance of piney hop and rich malt. Finishes dry and somewhat bitter, certainly not overwhelming in bitterness. The bitterness lingers for a bit. Nice mouthfeel, not too heavy or light. Moderate carbonation, which suits it. Overall, quite a tasty, not-too-in-your-face IPA with good balance between malt and hops. First time drinking a beer from this brewery, and I’m certainly pleased.

Location: 12 oz bottle from Bruisin’ Ales, 1/12/15
Aroma: The nose is lightly resiny, with some floral hops, sweet caramel, and a toasty malts
Appearance: A mostly clear orange color with a thick, frothy off-white/beige head and sticky lace
Flavor: The flavor is fairly malty/sweet, decent bitterness as well, but definitely sweet for the style
Palate: The body is medium, it has a pretty sticky mouthfeel, and a lightly dry finish
I thought this was an alright, rather sweet IPA. Congrats to The Ohio State University, winning so convincingly as the 4th team in with a 3rd string QB in the 2nd round of the 1st college football playoff. Wow. As for the beer... This is decent, but I can’t really give it a higher compliment than that.
