Pint on tap. Itís dark yellow, clear, and has good lacing. Bitter, bitter bitter, though. I kind of disagree with the description...I didnít find it exceptionally malty or complex, actually. Kind of a basic IPA, just fine, but youíre not missing anything.

Copper with an off-white head, leaves nice lacing. Aromas of grassy hops. Citrusy +piney hops with a good malt balance. Smooth but slightly sticky mouthfeel. Great IPA!

Pours a copper color with off white head. Aromas of spice, malt, light citrus, and grass. Flavor is sweet malt and citrus, some biscuit and a dry bitter spice and hoppy finish.

12 oz - nicely laced, wonderful head of white froth. Looks a little fizzy, but the malt is there. Thereís nothing Iíd change about this one.

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.

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. Itís nothing revolutionary but itís damn nice.

EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUN 18, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2015 The appearance fuses a hazy orange color with a medium off-white head that has a good retention, and the aroma is reminiscent of resin, grassy, and floral hops the second your nose gets close to the rim of the glass. The taste is mildly bitter, a touch sweet, and a touch sour, and the aftertaste is grassy; furthermore, the palate combines a sticky texture, soft carbonation, and a medium body.

Oh my! Nice white head and lacing, beautiful dark amber pour, medium texture, good medium hippy taste, nothing to not like here.
