UPDATED: NOV 10, 2014 Hopped up and bready, a lot like a Fat Tire mutated into a bold IPA. The aroma and flavors are fairly unique amongst the mass of craft India Pale Ales.

Smells of malt, with maybe a slight hint of hops. Nice golden amber color. For an IPA this doesn't have much hop flavor, just malt really

Bottle at the RBWG 2014 grand tasting, thanks! Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. ARoma has a bit of grassiness with light pine and a light grain backing. Flavor has more resinous pine with light grains and a hint of grass.

Taster at RBWG 2014 grand tasting - thanks to the person who shared this! Clear orange yellow color. Thin white head. Dots of lace. Good orange citrus aroma, nice pine, light biscuity caramel malt. Holy cow, this is only 5%? Very good aroma for the very light ABV. Light to medium body. Very smooth, lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Moderate sweet, light bitter taste. A solid, quasi session IPA.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft @ The Tap. Nose is mostly pine and floral hops. Flavor has lots of bitter resinous hops without much malt balance. Leafy green hops and more pine cone. Whoa, for me itís really on the harsh side. Lighter body doesnít make it any easier to drink. More malt for balance would really help this recipe.
