On tap at the brewery. Pours a medium amber with minimal head. Aroma is slight dankness, citrus, and some light dry hops. Taste is slight citrus, hop bitterness that isn’t under or over powering. Overall, this was descent but just a middle of the road IPA.

Taste was close to the nose with hops of lemons. pine, grapefriut and then slight sweetness of malts. Palate was creamy carbonation with medium body, little thin for IPA.

Bottle; poured an orange-amber with an off white, frothy head. Aroma of citrus, fruit, caramel, earth, pine and lemon. Aroma was very good, flavor was a few pegs below. Earthy, with a malty stickiness. After taste was not all that welcomed. A bit dry; alcohol well hidden. Just ok.
