12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours an apricot color. The head is a fluffy one finger off-white shade. All in all, the looks are typical for the style: frothy head, okay retention, and plenty of lacing left behind. S: Aromatically, hops do jump out from the glass - mainly the floral, lemony variety. Sourdough bread seems to make an appearance, too. Iíve grown to point where I can smell Centennial hops from a mile away, and this brewís got íem. T: Flavor-wise, itís sweeter than what the aroma let on. I was waiting for the bitterness to prick the tongue...and instead I got a sweet, caramel forward brew where the hops are only there to balance instead of being showcased. Late in the aftertaste, some floral and spicy hop notes do appear. Aside from the typical caramel and toffee notes, itís also a bit earthy. M: Itís a rather clean brew, which at least helps quash some of the sweetness well. It glides down the tongue with a crisp bite, too Iíd almost call it thirst quenching...no, I will call it thirst quenching. Not dry by any stretch, but it does a good job of going down easily anyways. The sweet finish doesnít bother me at all. O: Iíll give it one thing - itís drinkable. Very drinkable, even for a 7.3% IPA. It just doesnít have the most interesting flavor is all. If I had bought a 6 pack of this (which I didnít) I wouldnít have any trouble killing it.

Good DIPA. 10oz pour into tulip. Pours an amber color with a thick white head that sticks around and plenty of carbonation running to the rim. Nose of fresh flowers, hay, and faint pineapple. Bitter on the tongue with a dry finish and medium carbonation.

Poured from a bottle with a medium amount of head and a golden orange color. It has a strong hoppy and slightly bitter aftertaste.

bkurtz (866) - PERU - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle - Pours a slightly hazy amber/orange with a big, creamy head that also had large bubbles. Aromas of orange, mango, and pine. Aromas meld well in the taste with some bitterness. Good balance, clean finish, nice IPA.

ICEatALAMO (997) - Troy, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Draft at Broadway Brewhouse. Served in a snifter and a bright vibrant orange. The aroma is sweet juicy hops, but not overpowering. The taste is a nice mix of hops, but almost lacking the pronounced hop profile. Good ipa though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
