Hazy and deep, dark amber-orange; frothy head and really nice lace. Moderate carbonation and medium-bodied. Rich malts (bread dough) were mildly sweet. Slightest hint of chocolate. Hops (grassy, citrusy, earthy, wholesome) complemented very well (definitely there, but not over-the-top at all). Rather easy to drink and pretty tasty.

Nice grassy and malt aroma. Murky dark copper color. Nice grapefruit bitterness up front with a good malt and fruity base. Crisp and clean finish. Very nice IPA though I like more aroma out of this style.

This beer is a suprise! I was bored with the beer selection at the pub I used to go to. I confessed my fustration to the bar keeper. When she poured me a sample of this new IPA that just arrived. She called it "the twig". Appearantly, they call it this because the tapper is in fact a plastic tree branch. Making it look very different from all the other tappers! It was very different indeed! Tasty and delicious. A very nice find. Highly recommended!

what a wonderful beer. Has a great bold flavor that is different from most other IPA's. Once you have a pint of Gravity you won't mistake it for anything else.
