Bottled 04/30/12: A toasty IPA with a lively, yet oily mouthfeel. Well-hidden alcohol, smelled and tasted lighter. Would be more quaffable -- not exactly sure why, however, maybe the palate. Overall, has a nice rural element to it, but that might be the label talking -- I really like the bottle and label. Iím use to those super citrus hop bombs and Iíve only driven through Utah so thatís what I meant by that, if that makes sense at all. Anyway, I liked it, enjoyed it, and would have another, but at another time.

Clear orange pour with a creamy single finger head. Lace is present. Slightly dish soap like. Lots of citrus and dank fruits, but not overwhelming. Grassy with some hints of melon. Refreshing and dry. Medium bodied mouth.

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.

Poured from the bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a semi-cloudy amber color with an average sized foamy white head with good cling and lacing. The aroma featured citrus hops, with touches of pine and straw, and a very light malt presence. Its taste had a bitter citrus flavor with a grainy component, and a slight sourness as well. It was a very dry beer with average carbonation to go with a full body and mouthfeel.

Bottle. Copper with thin foamy white head and light lacing. Smells a tad biscuity then a little lemony, grapefruity, and fresh. Tastes a little perfumey then goes into the dry/bitter. Hard mouthfeel, moderate bitter finish. Not bad, but there are others I like better. (Caveat- I just ate jalapenos and the burn is still in my mouth- so grain of salt.)
