3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint on tap. Clear copper with a film of lasting bubbles. Pleasant but slightly subdued nose of orange toffee, grapefruit and resin. Taste has grapefruit, earthy orange, toasted grain and nut, toffee and a nice drying finish of resin. Light-medium body finishes well to the dry side, has medium carbonation and is one of the few well-balanced American IPAs.

Growler. Pours a clear, dark amber with a fairly thick pale buff head. Hoppy aroma is mostly woody, with malty and resiny undertones. Woody hops dominate the flavor, more resin/evergreen coming through, while a malty tone provides backup and fruity and floral snips. Texture is firm and ragged, enhancing a nice finish. Don’t monkey around, because this will help you achieve liftoff!

From a can. Pours hazy copper with a bubbly off white head and lots of lacing. Tastes malty, like dry raisin, roasted nuts, dry hops. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like roasted malt, nutty, and citrus hops.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Never heard of this brewery or beer but I’m a sucker for IPA’s so I grabbed it to try. Popped the top and got a bunch of pine, soft fruit and a nice sweetness. Taste is different, in a good way. There is a sweetness almost like molasses taste here and then a big punch of resinous hop bitterness. Super tasty stuff, one is not going to be enough. I’m pleasantly surprised by this.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 I prefer my IPA with a malt backbone and this one delivers. Takes some getting used to at first. Heavy on the malt, almost ESB like in the biscuity, bready side. Very well done. A unique IPA and one which I canâ€™t quite come close to a flavor comparison. Very well done!

Can. Cloudy amber body. Fizzy white head, mostly lasting. Aroma of toasted grain, pine, resin. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Big caramel malts in the taste. Thicker body than usual for an ipa.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hoppy with a sticky mouthfeel. A nice balance of malt and hops. A little to rich to drink too many, but a nice IPA.
