Transfer from BA review on 3-29-14-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a medium golden amber color with a tiny white fizzy head. The head fades very fast leaving a bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is mainly of a sweeter smell being a mix of caramel, toffee, and some tropical fruits of mango and papaya. There is only a very light level of hop smell in this one, with just a hint of grapefruit and herbal hop. With a little bit of a doughy smell the aroma is overall very fruity and sweet.
Taste – The taste begins with a doughty and bready flavor mixed with some hop of a grapefruit nature as well as some sweetness of a caramel and tropical fruit flavor. These flavors remain relatively constant throughout the taste with only the tropical fruit flavors getting slightly stronger as the taste moves on to the end. Some more hop flavors of an earthy and pine nature come to the tongue more toward the end of the taste and with the increase in the tropical fruits and all the other flavors that acted as a base for the flavor profile, it ends leaving a sweet and more lightly hopped (for an IPA) flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is actually rather thick and chewy for a brew of only 6.2 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. For the lighter hop flavors, the thinner carbonation and thicker body actually were quite nice as they accentuated these lighter flavors in comparison to the sweeter and beadier flavors of the brew; giving it a more IPA like quality than it otherwise would have had.
Overall – While a bit light in the hop profile for an IPA, the flavors all melded rather well together and made for an easy drinking brew. For the style not really appropriate overall, it should be labeled as an APA as this would be a great drinking brew for that style.

Not a bad offering at all. Fairly malted but the hops are strong enough to overpower a lot of the malt. I all honesty, it’s a really decent clean drinking IPA that’s worth it.

Amber pour, off white head. A tad maltier than I would like but certainly not bad. Hop pellet bitterness and caramel malt. Decent.
