COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gearhead IPA is brewed in the Northwest tradition of generous amounts of aroma hops, creating layers of citrus and piney aromatics and flavors, while managing to strike a balance with moderate malt body. This crisp and refreshing beer will provide you with complex and resinous aromas

Boimber poured a clear orange amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of biscuit, eartthiness, mint, citrus and light pine. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of crackers, earthiness, pine, orange zest and mint with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.

Pours a light transparent copper, little head. Super floral hoppy aroma, with some sweet mandarin and honey behind. Pungent, and itís got a really nice flavor, too. Slightly dilute - needs a bit of crispness, but itís definitely a nice, but gentle, hop-forward IPA.

Bomber. Pours a cloudy golden orange color along with a layer of sudsy off-white head. In the aroma, itís mostly dank, earthy hops, pine resin and grapefruit. The flavor starts out with a fair amount of resinous, vegetal hops bitterness and grapefruit rind as well as some pine and orange citrus. Also a tiny bit of toasted malt and caramel sweetness toward the end. Somewhat of a creamy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a bitter, citrus finish. Overall, itís a solid West Coast IPA but not quite as tasty as Workhorse.

Delicious IPA. Malts have lots of bread, caramel and cocoa. Hops are green, pine-like, dank and citrusy. Bold, grapefruit bitterness gives it a snappy edge.

22oz bottle, split with dwm1034. Thanks! Pours a cloudy amber color with a lot of floaties. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, a little malty. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, a little hoppy, With a light bitter finish. Just ok. Bottle might be a little a bit old.

Bottle:   Fiery Amber, sediment showing on the bottom of the glass, moderate foamy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Citrus zest and pith on the nose, slightly sweet.   Moderate to light bitterness on the tongue, not terribly hoppy, moreso a citrus or pith sort of bitterness.   Does have a slight citrusy sweet aspect to it too.   Not a big beer, seems like a bigger Pale or a lighter IPA.   I say that because the bitterness isnt terribly strong.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Light citrus and hop bitterness on the finish, with a mild sweet background.   Its clean and easy to drink, just not a big IPA.   Not a hop heads type of beer, but still enjoyable.

Tap @ Parkway. Hazy light amber pour with a short white head leaving moderate lace. Nice floral nose with a hint of medium-roast malts. Medium-light body that fades to light and moderate carbonation. Biscuit, malt, tea, almond and pine. Long, bitter finish with a touch of coffee grounds.

Its okay, an IPAish suitable for your average microbeer swilling hipster. Otherwise not exciting.
