Golden-amber clear pour, light but nicely colored head. Nice amount of bitterness, and not too sweet. Medium body, lightly creamy texture. Overall a tasty IPA.

Bottle pour. Pours a dark orange, half a finger head. Not much aroma to speak of. Floral hop taste balanced by plenty of malt. Pretty good.

Good and hoppy. Nice aroma. Would probably rate higher if I hadn’t had so many ipas lately.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy dark orange with an average size foamy off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops with a touch of malt to balance it out. Taste is flavourful-- citrus hops galore but still nicely balanced with malt. Medium bodied. Easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle from DMs with BB 3/11/15. Clear dark orange with an ample white head. Hoppy aromas with stonefruit (apricot), pine resin and citrus to the fore on top of a caramel biscuity malt bill. Taste is balanced bittersweetness with a substantially resinous dry hop finish that lingers. Palate is medium-fullish bodied and spritely. A great American-style IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Code date of 8/9/15. Appearance: Deep amber and clear with a light khaki head.
Aroma: relatively faint hop aroma for an American IPA. Some floral and herbal notes, but it’s minimal. Caramel malt also noticeable.
Taste: Rich caramel and toasty malt flavors dominate, with a sharp hop bitterness that has some herbal and resinous notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with some viscosity and low carbonation.
Finish: Some lingering herbal bitterness and caramel malt.
Overall: Definitely an east coast as opposed to west coast IPA. More malt balanced than a west coast IPA. Drinks like a slightly hoppier American Amber

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber, big foam. Filtered. Grassy resinous fruoty hops in the nose. Medium body. Taste is a bit flat, not incredible!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light yellow color until it settles into a light copper color. Drank this beer on nitro which could explain why it was creamy with a light IPA bitterness aftertaste. Minimal floral flavor, more of a light IPA in complexity as well as characteristics.
