Medium body and carbonation. Grapefruit, peach, and apricot flavor. Peach aroma. Clear amber body. Low-medium hop, which was well balanced with the malt.

A great big hop punch offset with a slight malty sweetness produces a perfect go-to IPA. Carbonation produces a thick grassy head of hoppiness that is added bonus of pouring a pint of one of these bad boys.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into a snifter. I love the funny little medicine bottle it comes in.
3.0 A: First pour was nearly asll head. It took a long ass time to get a full glass. Opaque amber brown color. Three fingers of off-white, airy froth. Retention is great, but the head itself is ugly. Some lacing left.
3.0 S: Floral and citrusy hop aroma, though the overall vibe is more earthy. Caramel maltiness with a heavy yeastiness. A little soapy. Bready from the yeastiness.
3.5 T: Taste is well balanced with malts and hops. Fairly strong caramel flavor with a strong malt backbone overall. Orange citrus from the hops with some herbal and earthy notes. The yeastiness is again strong, but it somehow works well in the taste.
3.5 M: Medium body. Surprisingly not overcarbonated (and I didn’t even aggitate it much). Reasonably creamy and fairly smooth.
3.0 D: Not a bad IPA, but heavy on the yeast. If you like that kind of brew, you’ll love this.

Good, easy drinking IPA. Aroma of strong citrus bursting through the malt, and a crisp, clean, extremely hoppy up front taste that finishes a bit bitter. As far as IPAs go, this one is somewhat pedestrian, but solid nonetheless.

Pours copper with nearly 3 fingers of puffywhite head. gobs of lacing. Aroma of crystal malts and a bit of pine. Balanced though somewhat bland taste - some hoppy bitterness, crystal malt. A bit rough in the finish. I’d consider it somewhere between a session ale and a british pale ale - I prefer more hop forward. It’s good enough, just not as an American IPA. Love the stubby bottle though..

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy copper with a nice cap of off-white foam. Pretty good lacing.
Smells is very citrusy with pineapple and grapefruit being dominant. A tiny bit of grain is present as well.
Flavor is pineapple and grapefruit up front followed by a bit of tartness. Some earthyness and grain is present towards the finish.There is a strong bitterness throughout. Mouthfeel is a bit sticky.
The whole beer just seems a little rough around the edges. It is a little bit harsh and would probably be a one and done for me.

Poured a light orange hue til the end when the sediment murked it up. This bottle is old so I am sure there is more going on when fresh. Sweet malt with some fain piney harshness. A little earthy. Sweet finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Cloudy amber with a medium head. Aroma is sweet, with caramel and fruity citrus and pine hops. Flavor is sweet citrus fruit with a bitter finish. Not especially carbonated. Good flavor, but somewhat flat and sweet.
