4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Difficult to find fault with this one, and after more than one, I’m hardly inclined to. A nose that will knock your socks off, enough hop bitterness to satisfy your hop cravings, and a mouthful soft and full enough to keep this quaffable for a good session of beer drinking. Truly a great discovery in Iowa! I found this in a couple of places during our (my girlfriend/bride to be and mine) visit to Iowa City last week--Blackstone and Sanctuary. Worth checking out.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from my Secret Santa, shared with Ian. Light gold pour, with a small, bubbly, beige head. The nose is butter toffee, soft pine sap, and orange juice. Bold, smooth bitterness, with a good malt balance. Medium to heavy body, thick, creamy, and slick. This is a very assertive, yet approachable IPA. Manages to be strong and bitter, yet smooth and balanced.

How: Bottle (12 oz) at home. Courtesy of Minderbinder, thanks!
>>> A well constructed IPA with a more than decent malt backbone and a mix of hops that, despite the fact they aren’t intensely aromatics, complements each other nicely to give a nice flavor profile to this beer.
- Clear bright orangey golden with a medium easy to revive white head and some lacing.
- Aroma isn’t super intense but there’s a really nice mix of citrus (oranges, nectarines), melons, resinous/piney notes,floral hops and mild spiciness.
- Sweetness level is low and the malt backbone is discrete but pretty solid.
- Bitterness is low to moderate with a tingling resinous presence.
- Body is medium and perfect for the style. Carbonation is medium and mouthfeel is fluffy. Dry and floral finish.
- Very easy drinking and quenching despite not being "light".
Flavors: Citrus (oranges, nectarines), piney notes, floral hops, mild spiciness, mild caramel.
