On tap at this good old West Bank brewpub. Aromas abound here and the subtle additions make this beer a local favorite.

Poured from a growler into a standard pint glass Growler opened with a satisfying burst of carbonation. Pours a beautiful copper color with a thin 1/2" white head. Crystal clear with appropriate level of carbonation. Good balance of earthy hops and sweet malt in the aroma. Nothing overpowering - just a really nice balance. I expected this to be a little more hop forward, but this wasn’t at all disappointing. Flavor has a good amount of bitterness, and a nice balance of fruity malt. When first poured, I detected a slight bubble gum flavor that was interesting and not unappealing. As the beer warmed in the glass a little, this disappeared. Solid body, maybe slightly on the thin side, but appropriate for an IPA. Extremely drinkable. I could have these all night long. Nothing is overpowering here - alcohol is detectable, but restrained. Malt and hops in perfect balance. Balance is the key word for this beer. Not a hop monster of an ipa, just a really solid, malty, hoppy ipa that is worthy of the hype.

Clear copper pour with a thin off white head .... Aroma of piney hops, citrusy, grapefruity and caramel malts .... Taste is of piney hops, grapefruits, rindy, orange with a nice caramel malt backbone and a bitter ibu punch of hops.... Finish is dry and bitter with a lingering piney rindy hop bite ..... Mouthfeel is a little slick .... Solid above average IPA

Growler. Amber pour with a big off white head. Herbal/floral hop aromas. Herbal almost medicinal hop notes dominate. It has that eucalyptus/woody characteristic that for me is off putting. A bit unbalanced with an underwhelming malt backbone. Average mouthfeel.

On tap at the Brewery/Brewpub -- My second favorite of the flight. Very solid offering, but nothing spectacular. Balanced between early bittering hops and later aroma/flavor hops.
