Bottle. Thanks, Nate. Citrusy, floral nose, with some overripe dates. Thin pale straw color. Hefty citrus initial, tropical fruit in mid, decent medium-strength bitter tracks in finish. Thin--medium body. Tasty and quite fruity. Good IPA.

Rated based on notes taken 14 July 2012 -- I really rated this beer high, I think by the time I drank it I was pretty hammered though, so not sure how accurate it is. Oh well, guess I’ll have to try it again sometime.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Clear deep gold body that pours with almost no head. The head is just a bit of lace. After a few minutes, the surface is barren. Smells very hoppy. Not shy on the grapefruit hops. Totally dominates he smell. Behind it is some piney hops and some toasted malt aroma. Taste is hop-forward, which is good. The hop isn’t quite as pronounced as the aroma. Behind the hops is some spicy, almost rye-like malt. Very dry and toasty tasting malts. Not a lot of carbonation, which emphasizes the dry taste from the malts. It leaves an empty bitterness behind. It also makes it feel pretty light in body. Decent beer. Smelled pretty nice, but didn’t deliver in flavor as much.

This I.P.A. has a medium body with a good head. It has a good malt flavor, with some character, and it is highly hopped. Overall, a good beer on a hot day.

Drinking this draft, the appearance was excellent, very well carb and a clear golden color. Smell was citrusy but nothing really highlight an essential fruit. I think the ibus overpower any fruit taste other than hops. Overall good IPA.

Aroma has faint hints of pine, and floral notes. Nice copper body, ok head and a fair amount of thick lace. Flavor (thankfully) was more pronounced with malt at first and the floral taking a brief hold, finishing with a pine/ grapefruit finish, nice bitterness.

Light aroma, smooth taste front to back on the tongue, not strong as an IPA, but refreshing.
