Pours slightly orange with a thin white head. Not a lot of aroma. The taste is full of grapefruit but not much else. Finishes clean. I’ve had this beer like 40 times before. I’m kind of getting bored with this style.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught sample at brewery. Medium amber reddish body with thin foamy lacing head. Starts with big juicy hops, fresh with grapefruit and resin. Good sweet malt with light caramel and biscuit. Finish is a big bitter chomp, dry, with a lasting bitter coating to the tongue. Medium body with medium carbonation. Floral hops nose with fresh grapefruit oil and resin. Really nice balance and goes down a bit too easily. Very nice IPA. It’s a refreshing step back from the IIPAs that are showing up more and more.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy amber orange with a thick white head. Aroma of bready malt and floral hops. Flavor features more hoppy bitterness and bready malts. Good IPA, although it’s more like a pale ale.

12 oz can from trade with mdg164. Pours hazy copper color with off white head. Aroma of caramel malts, grapefruit, pine and some earthiness. Similar flavor with the malts coming through stronger than the hops. Medium body with average carbonation. Thanks Marc.

Can thanks to DrSilverworm. Hazy light gold pour with a small head that fades to a very thin ring. Aroma is pretty malty for an IPA. Caramel and sugar cookies mostly with some citrus and floral hops. Taste is juicy sweet with not much bitterness to balance. Spicy and citrus hops are there to go with the caramel malt. Medium to full body and not much carbonation which hurts it I think. Not really my kinda IPA but certainly not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Rivertowne. Pours a hazy, amberish burnt orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is some dense grapefruits and thicker caramels. A light cystal, floral, and pine. Flavor is better with a sweeter grapefruit pine and floral with a touch of candy. Balancing caramel and a light crystal before this finishes dry with a nice, moderate bitterness. Leaves a lengthy aftertaste after a medium body and light carbonation. Overall, a solid IPA. Nice bitterness and grapefruity pine with a solid caramel balance. Not bad.

After taking in the weak aroma of stale hops and seeing the flat bubble-less orange pour, I thought I was going to be let down. Well as far as IPAs go, I was, but for this brewer and compared to the aroma it was great. Taste was light malt in the front with very little carbonation. The aftertaste, though, is when you are hit by hops so big you would think you were drinking an IIPA. Very nice finish. Would like to try this again.

This is a great session IPA, brings a nice malt flavor with a touch caramel and a bitter hops that is not overpowering nor too potent, for a casual drinker

Decent IPA. Nothing real special just an all around good beer. Well balanced with a dry finish.
