Pours a decent orange with a nose of new-car grapefruit and doughy hops. Flavor is nutmeg, clove, and hops. Decent mouthfeel. Very exotic, and quite tasty.

sweet aroma; lightly hopped; golden, hazy, minimal head, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, medium body, average carbonation, long finish. Pleasant to drink, but not a good session beer.

Pretty strong IPA...pours caramel, translucent. Piney up front wiht a bitter crisp end. Malt body tastes like it has some rye to it; it’s substantial without being over powering. Good dry finish.

I really wanted to like this, but overall I thought it was very mediocre. Mouth feel was kinda blah, and the hops weren’t up to my standard for an IPA, barely even came through in the nose.

10/23/2012 - From notes - Sample pour of golden straw with full white head. Nose is citrus and floral with grapefruit and lemon, orange and bitterness. Kinda sharp. Flavor is citrus and hops up front; mineral notes follow... cardboard. Kinda cleanish. Pretty light body

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
This crisp and prickly India Pale Ale showcases oranges and hop resins aplenty, as floral honey suggestions cover light biscuits.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A tireless head of foam laces atop the hazy amber.
-The flavor profile is leveled throughout, of medium-level of intensity.
-A touch of alcohol is hallucinated.
-Malts are as nicely defined as the hops in this one, which is not often the case for American IPAs.
-The body is slick and professionally-rendered.
-Drinkability is very high for a 6% brew.
Can. Thx Steve!
