Tap at Dig Beer Bar, Beer Cats Osaka Party event. Smooth, hoppy nose. Medium copper/amber color. Fruity initial, with peach and some rich caramel, tangy hopping, and good tracks in final. Well balanced all the way through. Good. A standard IPA.

Can. This pours exactly how I want an IPA to look: a copper gold with a big fluffy head. The nose has a big juicy hop bouquet with a nice malty sweetness. The taste is an earthy bitter pine with a sweet finish. Well balanced and satisfying.

From a can into a pint glass. The pour is a cloudy orange with a minimum white head. There’s a piney, lemon zest, great malt balance. Second beer I have from these guys and I’m impressed with this IPA.

Bottle from Haggen’s Grocery, Burlington
Hazy amber color, bright, with generous head. Very nice aroma, fruity, sweet orange peel. Lean mouthfeel, on the dry side, but soft on the tongue; mild caramel flavor, that lets the hops appear quite freely.
Very clean, good old school IPA.

Aroma is hops and malts. Pours golden with a rocky white head. Taste is citrus, spicy, malty. Finish is spice and faint banana. Good body and not too bitter.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
It just IS an IPA. Bitter but not too bitter. Hoppy but not too hoppy. Nothing offensive and nothing spectacular. A scent of grass and hips and green, and a standard IPA flavor. Good, for sure, and drinkable - there is nothing that can go wrong here. But nothing that would suprise you, either.

Sampler at brewpub. Lightly citrus bit more grassy weedy in flavor. Very light and clean. Low bitterness. Fine enough stuff, could drink again but wont seek out.
