Voraciously hoppy and not overly bitter. The Kind brings enormous aroma and maximum flavor. It’s like taking a walk through a pine forest and ending up at a citrus farm. This beer brings joy to the world, one sip at a time.

Bottle at Pat’s birthday tasting at chriso’s. Pours hazy gold with a fine, white head. Big pithy citrus aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor, faint toasty grass bitters, more citrus pith, some straw. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Slightly dry to finish, yet more pithy citrus, light white sugar. Nice enough IPA. Nothing outstanding about it.

Bottle at Pat’s birthday tasting at Chriso’s. Colour is light cloudy orange. Nose is sweet tangerine, orange. Taste is light bodied sharpness and sweetness from tangerine and orange fruit. It’s lacking a bit of body and feeling thin. There’s also a hint of menthol on the finish.

From bottle. Pours clear and light golden colour with not much head. Seems like not enough carbonation. Aroma of grassy floral hops, a slight bit of pine. Taste is a bit different than the aroma - thin and slight bitterness.

Bomber. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Big hop aroma. Lemon and grassy flavors though not very complex overall. A mediocre IPA that is still quite drinkable just not that memorable.

bottle... a bit ugly, dark gold with deep cooper notes, murky, light watery tan head... the aroma at first is some nice dank notes but then it becomes skunky, average... this seems a bit old, skunky with light grass, watery, not much here

Pours slightly hazed gold into a Sam glass. Bright white micro head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Resin and pine aromas. Soft with sweet dough upfront turning to resin before the lasting grapefruit finish.

Straight pour from a pry-off 22oz bomber into a wit tumbler, no date. Appearance (4/5): Rocky, 2 finger, just barely off-white head with minimal lacing but some head retention; clear, pure golden body. Smell (7/10): Moderately aromatic, the smell is totally pine and some bracing (bitter, not sweet) citrus, with some very lightly sweet malts in the background. Hops are definitely front and center in the nose, and the scent is clear but not as strong as you’d think (and personally I’d hoped for). Taste (8/10): Follows the scent, pine is front and center followed by bitter citrus, with a mellow, light and mildly sweet malt body on the mid-palate. The aftertaste is mainly bitter citrus, which I enjoy—very much prefer pine and acidic citrus in my IPAs, as opposed to overly “fruity” hops. Aftertaste lingers, and the hop presence is almost constant, with not a lot of room for the malt body. Makes it feel more sessionable though, which I like. Mouthfeel (3/10): Relatively thin, actually, with very little carbonation. This was kind of a surprise after getting such a nice head, but it is what it is. It’s actually more like a cask ale, which is interesting. Not bad when you look at it that way, but for a bottle I’d prefer more effervescence. Hop oils offer a light coating on the tongue, but nothing major. Overall (16/20): This is a decent IPA, and worth trying if you like piney American IPAs that won’t weigh you down too much. I’m marking it down a bit because it wasn’t quite what I was expecting for a straight pour from the bottle, but I’d LOVE to try this fresh and on cask.

Draught at the Lovin’ Cup. Dark gold color with lace. Big citrus nose with grapefruit, light malts. Great. Rather sweet malt flavor wth lemon and sweet orange, big citrus hops, grassy. A bit too sweet, but the hops are great and it’s darn good overall.
