Golden with a thin head and a hoppy nose. Malty intro with a mildly carbonated, sticky mouthfeel, and a smooth finish with hoppy, lemon, butterscotch notes.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
A musty floral aroma. An amber pour with a rapidly dissipating white head and no lacing. The flavor begins hoppy - notes of pine and citrus - and pretty much stays that way all the way through to the finish. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Fizzy mouthfeel. Overall, refreshing on a hot day, but not my first choice for an IPA.

Hazy orange with lots of visual carbonation that creates a lasting white head. Floral hop aroma that is not over powering. Nice malt and hop balance with medium body on the first drink. Glad to see an American IPA that resembles the original style. Long dry finish.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent for the style but above average for most beers. Faint hop aroma of pine that could have been stronger. Nice amber color with average head. Could amount of carbonation and there was a nice weight and fullness to the beer. A mix of hop flavors that had balance with the malt background. Outside of their Divine Reserve series, one of this brewery’s better beers.

Bottle pour to glass. Fresh tasting; balanced hops and malts. Not bad, but not outstanding in any way.

Bottle from ldhughes3 many thanks. Pours amber hue with off white head, fair retention. Nose of pine and citrus. Taste starts with cereal graininess was over by solid bitterness that lingers. Finish adds element of grapefruit and pine. Light to medium body.

Classic IPA with perfect balance of malt and hops. Easy to drink, Elissa hides the 6.6 abv incredibly well and is one of my favorite beers of this genre or any other.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from drabmuh. Thanks Matt.
The beer is clear and light orange hued with a small whit head. The aroma consists of grain, biscuits, toasted bread. Very little hop presence here. The flavor confirms the absence of the hop profile one would expect in an IPA. Too grainy. Light to medium bodied with appropriate carbonation. Overall, I find this beer unimpressive. Not a repeat for me.
