4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
The pour had a classic IPA look, with a peach colored clear body, two finger thick foamy head with lots of staying power, and gentle streams of natural carbonation streamers. The beer had a strong hop aroma, as I did no even need to bring the glass to my nose to start to smell it. The hops were typical citric type, with grapefruit, mandarin orange, and cut hay being the predominant smells. The taste wasn’t quite as complex as I had thought it was going to be. It was plenty hoppy, but with not much malt backing it up. The result was a bitter and spicy, "California style" hop bomb. Lucky for them, I actually really like the one dimensional assault. I think the freshness of this hometown brew really shines through, as the hops are really green and herbalicious, which is word this beer made me invent. Quite a light mouthfeel, with tingly bubbling of bursting carbonation dancing on my tongue. This is the perfect first sample from a brewery less than two miles from my house. I think I am going to go on tour of their facility just to get this at the source.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Served at around 40-45F.
Pours lightly hazy copper with a two-finger off-white head that leaves a little lacing and settles to a light cap.
Aroma is nice citrus, some mango, fruity hops, hint of pine, quite a lot of caramel malt, some bread. Good strength.
Flavor has more piney hops, some citrus, some fruit, hefty malt backbone of caramel and toasted bread that brings in a decent bit of sweetness...more than I like in an IPA, which drowns out the bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, sticky & oily, good carbonation.
Average IPA. Too malty for my tastes.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very clean, crisp and refreshing IPA. Not a west coast IPA which is fine as I prefer the east coast IPA. Lighter in body, but full of flavor. Well balanced.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ TacoMac, Crabapple. Deep orange color, white ring. Aroma of citrus hops, nice. Flavor is very fruity. Odd flavors for an IPA. Good caramel malts character. Finishes with a bold bitterness, as an IPA should. Lighter bodied than expected. I think the Kölsch was a bit heavier than this offering. I think I thoroughly enjoyed it. Glass was quickly emptied. A nice session! (3845)

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Taco Mac. Amber pour with foamy white head. Best thing about this beer is the aroma - floral, fruity, a bit of pine - really nice. Nice juicy flavor; nice bitter bite. Some balancing caramel malt lingering in the background. At first, the body seemed a bit on the light side to me, but as I progressed through my pint it seems to suit the beer well. Nice to have such a quality IPA available locally. Well done.
