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.

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.

Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a near clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has notes of bitter citrus and light grass with a light grain backbone. Flavor has notes of earthy citrus and grass with a grain backbone.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I cannot complain about this IPA. It is perfectly balanced. There are no uniquely discerning attributes or characteristics that may be memorable, other than the fact that this is just a damn good IPA. Prototypical for the style. Melds pine, resin, and to a lesser extent citrus notes in balance. Sufficiently hoppy, but doesn’t give away anything on the malt bill, either.

Bottle @ Jon’s place on the 4th. Pours a bit hazy golden orange appearance with a lasting white head. A lot of caramel and bread in the nose. Dull grapefruit and herbal hops. Fairly burger. Nutty, toasted bready flavor. Slightly oxidized. Dull citrus. Not that great.

Awesome piney hop flavor and aroma. Lasting white head. The malt character is understated, bready flavor that supports the hops and not much else. Overall a great example of what can be done with hops.

Draft at the brewery. Light amber body. Moderately hoppy aroma. Fresh hops in the flavor with some bready malts in the background. Alcohol well-hidden.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe. Clear deep yellow pour with an off white head. Mild piney hop aromas. Not huge but still note worthy pine and resin hop notes. Average body and mouthfeel. A nice IPA.
