Dark amber color, huge foamy head leaves lots of lacing. Pine aroma. Medium body, malty and sticky oily mouthfeel. Tastes pine, hops bitter. Pretty good.

Excellently smooth IPA. Had a draft half yard at the Yard House in SJ. Nice and strong without being overpowering.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Honey orange color, nice deep head (out of the bottle, that probably makes a difference). It leaves a lovely lacing on the glass.
Aroma is serious pine hop, very resinous and pungent.
The taste is equal parts spicy pine hops and earthy malt. It’s nothing revolutionary but it’s damn nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The appearance fuses a hazy orange color with a large off-white head that has a good retention, and the aroma is reminiscent of resin and floral hops the second your nose gets close to the rim of the glass. The taste is quite bitter, a touch sweet, and a touch sour, but the flavor doesn’t really balance as a large product; furthermore, the palate combines a sticky texture, bitter finish, soft carbonation, and a medium body.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark orange color with finger and a half tannish white head that goes down slowly and leaves a blanket of lacing. Smells of light grapefruit, some pine, some grass, oranges, a resinous quality to it, some light bready notes as well as some carmel sweetness. Taste is pretty much like the smell. It starts with grapefruit, oranges, and lemon. Then the malt comes in and balances the beer fairly well. Lots of sweet breadiness. Then the hops of the more bitter variety come back. Lots of resinous pine, as well as some grapefruit and oranges. Nice creamy and smooth mouthfeel to accompany the resinous hops. Medium body. The bitterness lingers after each sip. Wouldn’t mind getting this again. Decent ipa that comes in cans.

3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Purchased six pack of cans at Binnys
Aroma- smells mostly of bread. Not as much hop herbal aromas as i expect to get from an ipa.
Appearance- nice burnt orange with a white lingering head. Very clear
Taste- Tastes mostly of bread and malt. the hops come in next with a subtle piny and citrus flavor then dissipates quickly
Palate- very dry refreshing brew. the bitterness lingers on the palate for quite awhile after tasting.
Overall- not really the type of ipa that i prefer. i prefer an ipa to be more hop flavor based instead of malt based. All personal preferences aside i think this is an awesome beer well worth the six pack of cans i purchased.

12 oz can from DMK with sherm1016. Pours a rich yellow with modest head. Mild hops in the nose; mild bite in the taste. Nice mild bitter finish. A much better than average IPA.
