UPDATED: OCT 2, 2014 balanced thick aroma of somewhat aged hops and carmely malt. good body. a touch thick, smooth. covers the abv well. taste hoppy, citrus, sweet malt. decent finish. i cannot freakin beleive i had a decent JJ beer. This place had 5 drainpours and a sad excuse for an RIS in the first six i tried. this is by far the best. I know that’s not saying a ton...Pliny it is not...but damn, it’s not drainpour. Yay!!

Pour is golden with a large fluffy white head. Aroma is hops and a earthy honey note. A very easy drinker that is full of hop flavors but little bitterness.

From the 12 fl. oz. can. The pour is a very cloudy yellow with a modest white head and lacing. The aroma is both herbal and floral. The body is medium. The taste has a slight toasted bread character to start but the herbal and floral bitterness winds it up. The herbs feel like Ginger or Rosemary.

Draft. Pours yellow with a very slight haze. Very thin white head that dissipates quickly. Medium heavy carbonation over piney hop aroma. Nice citrus flavor with a bit of complexity. Enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden orange pour with some caramel, light grassy hops and malt. Flavors are the same, basic, but not bad, more malt than hops for an IPA. Ok overall, wouldn’t seek out or go out of m y way to try.
