4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a fairly thick, rocky off0white head that settless lowly and leaves some heaping clingy lace. Nose involves a whole gamut of hoppy goodness: floral, pine, citrus, earthy, herbal along with plenty of honey and sweet grain notes. Balanced sweet and bitter flavor: not over the top with bitterness, but plenty to balance the healthy malt backbone. Medium bodied, vibrant, a touch oily, with a pleasant drying bitterness on the end. A well put together IPA, and well-suited to those who favor some solid malt with their hops.

Bottle, bb 08/26/13 (I’ve definitely come to this brewery, for its labels and bottle design, production and operational practices, and of course, good product!). Nose is gorgeous, huge, powerful citrus, juicy and a little dank with mild undercurrents of pine and perhaps oak. Orange, grapefruit, lychee. Pale, slightly gradient orange pour, transparent with a rocky off-white head. Soapy medium mouthfeel, crisp and spicy, touch of oiliness form the hops along with the resin; cleanses the tongue, light wood, balancing caramel and toasted malt. Super clean, alcohol well-integrated, lightly floral, medium bitterness is utterly clean. Dry but not punishing, with light non-saccharine sugar swipes from the hops, and a little earthy toffee when it comes time to buckle down. Supremely balanced for such a big boy. Hop notch, indeed!

Bottle. Pretty good IPA. Some citrus tastes up front. Not too bitter and has a mild aftertaste. Not a lot of malt flavor.
