Tap @ Urban Chestnut. Pours a milky yellow brownish yellow appearance with a white head. Big juicy pineapple, herbal, a bit woody aroma. Bright tropical fruity hoppy, fairly dry, kind of chewy, herbal flavor. Pretty cool.

Beautiful copper colour. My favorite IPA so far. Usually prefer wheat beers and belgians - this corrects my aversion to IPAs due to many being hopped for the sole purpose of raising IBUs. Wonderful combination of malt and measured bitterness. Absolutely wonderful.

January 8, 2013 on tap at brewpub. Cloudy yellow with head and lacing. Spice and citrus in aroma that made you think hefeweizen, but taste had the bitter finish of an ipa. Interesting for sure.

Draft at Urban Chestnut. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Nose is spicy and earthy, light grass notes & pilsner malt. On tasting, reminds me of an unfiltered pilsner. Grassy hops, moderately high bitterness, some sweetness in terms of the malt. Clean overall, earthy finish. Really cool beer.

A German IPA? Interesting. Growler shared by Chris (spycow). Served in a New Glarus tasting glass.
A: Pours a clear yellow color with a whispy white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thick collar. Very reminiscent of a lager.
S: Grassy hops with a definite German pilsner yeast characteristic that is making this border on the lager side of things. There is a still a nice malty sweetness there.
T: The taste follows the nose really closely. Grassy hops with that pilsner yeast like quality. There is a touch more fruitiness in than the nose which brings back the IPA qualities of this beer. Nice sweet bread malts as well.
M: Light and crisp with a nice refreshing finish. Very lager-like.
O: This was an on hybrid type beer. It was definitely different with the German pilsner like qualities to it. Would definitely have again.
Serving type: growler
