Pours light amber with an off white head. Aroma is pine and hops. Taste is bitter from beginning to end. Backend lingers a bit, which leaves a sour taste on the palate. Not a bad IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nonic pint draft at the Terminal BrewHouse in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The pour is a mostly clear golden with a ˝ inch well formed white head. The aroma is soft cracker earth, bit of citrus fruit, hint of floral. Subdued nose. The taste is a decent balance between the softly sweet malt and the subdued floral and citrus fruit hops. The palate is medium bodied, soft carbonation and a dry finish. Did the trick.

on tap at brewpub.
A: a golden color with a moderate size white head. The head has excellent retention and lacing.
M: good carbonation, but seems a tad light/watery.
More East coast than West coast, with a strong malt component that nearly balances the hop load. This does have a moderately bitter and mildly hoppy aftertaste, but the malt load is really high, and the hop load a bit low, for a beer sold as a West Coast IPA. Does become more hop forward with warming.
