Very approachable, sessionable IPA. Sampled from the bottle with glass pour. Golden color with moderate lacing. Aromatic floral, citrus and pine notes. Very balanced flavor, with subtle malt and hop finish. Very drinkable with clean finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
To me, despite the ABV, this drank more like an APA. It looked okay, pale amber/yellow bodied with a modest foamy head with plenty of lacing. The aroma was all hops, citrusy with lemon and lemon zest. The flavor was more of the same and had the light addition of tropical fruit and pale malt. It finished dry and solidly bitter, this being the only bit that made it seem like an IPA.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Kyle. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A light nose of lemons, some biscuit, a bit of marmalade. The flavor is medium bitterness, big oranges, toasted malts, almonds, Amarillo is pretty clear. Quite nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, enjoy by is smeared but looks like 5/11/14. Nose is very hoppy, very woody; there’s typical orange peel citrus with lighter floral notes and some resin, light paper. Only very mild tropical accents. Pours orange with a soapy white head. Taste is bitter and very dry, nice scratching resin on the bottom end, touch of sweetness in the middle with oily orange before drying right back out again for the nice papery finish. Very cleansing. Medium-full body, crisp and refreshing, has a pine base with more generic wood wafting up through the middle. Good, clean fun, but was expecting a little more.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent IPA, but would probably lose in a taste battle half the time. Has a vanilla/warmer malt hint that lingers.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy orange yellow. Smelled like hop pellets were floating in the beer. Incredibly fresh. Taste is noticeably malty. Much more than the aroma indicates. Southfield is smooth and thick with a thick foamy head. Finishes dry with notes of orange and other citrus. Impressive.

Had this tasty little number at the Cleveland Winter Beerfest last night 1-31-14. Very similar to Fathead’s Headhunter IPA. Hop forward and aggressive must try for any hop head!
