Bold bitterness upfront without lingering flavor. Bready. It’s ok but not worth $10/4-pk.

Smells good, looks nice, be the taste is lacking. Some kind of weird caramel stale hop taste. Almost smells on the verge of a scotch, but is just not very good.

Smells like dank cheap weed. Seems like it has potential to be a nice IPA then just doesn’t make it. Pretty much what I expected from the brewery.

Meh. This was a very blah beer. Not much going on at all. Could do without trying this one again.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with white head. Fresh cut grass, resiny, bitter aromas. Grassy, earthy, bitter, light caramel flavors. Meh, alright.

Dark and dreamy amber pour with thin beige head. Great to look at. Nose is dank hop and evergreen copse. Mouthful of grass and sweet resin up front, followed by a dry and bitter kicker. Was hoping for stickier, more profound hop notes. Some lingering malt sweetness. Full bodied and smooth. Has some potential, just not quite on the money.

Bottle into a glass. pours deep amber, slight white head. Grassy, slightly bubblegum aroma. Taste is grass, malt, caramel, cotton candy. Meh.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2014 Decent IPA, has a great color and mouthfeel but falls somewhat short in the aroma and taste departments. Was really expecting more piney and citrusy notes with the claims of extra fresh hops being used in this brew. Would not buy again in bottle but I would like to try it on tap and taste the difference.

Pours amber with a thin wispy tan well maintained head. Notes of sweet, mild hop resin. Medium bodied and resinous with lush carbonation.
