3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz Bottle. The pour was a cloudy orange with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that was mostly lasting, reducing to a thick frothy film and large collar with excellent sheeting of sticky lacing.
The aroma was of a grain malt, floral and citrus hops and a sweaty yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit and orange peel).
The taste was moderately bitter with a light caramel sweetness pretty much throughout, progressing slightly with a nice grapefruit hop presence taking over along with a bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow with a light hoppy grapefruit taste left behind to linger a little longer.
Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a carbonation that was just beyond mild in intensity.
Overall I found this to be a very well balanced IPA, nice and hoppy with a tasty light sweetness and a not so overbearing bitterness...

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle Pours a medium-to dark gold with a high, lacy, coarse-grained cream-colored head. Nose is very clean -- camphor, spruce, mint, grapefruit. Flavor is as clean; sharply defined, elegantly balanced between bitterness, citric sourness, and an almost butterscotch malty sweetness. Finish remains sweetness -- a touch too sweet for me, this beer’s only flaw. Excellent.

New copper color with a golden tint. Foamy white head. Floral hop nose. Citrus and.floral hop taste balanced by the malt. Just pushes the boundary of traditional enough to satisfy.
