Cloudy amber color with small lasting head, taste plenty of hops, malt, grapefruit, bitter finish. Flavour is kinda bland though. Ok pale ale, but couldnt drink a lot of it.

Had it on tap, nitro style! Pours a clear copper hue with a nice head and mondo lacing. Very smooth tasting IPA that has a even smoother kickback. And dare I say it, a smooth aroma to boot.

355ml bottle. Simply a delightful IPA. Very flavourful but not aggressively or jarringly bitter. The balance is just right. Looks, tastes and smells just like it should.

Clear mahogany with an of white head. Aroma floral with citrus and caramel notes. Taste of his and a little cardboard, not particularly bitter, would say this is a pale ale except that the palate is more bitter (and cardboardy) than a pale ale would be. OK

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber, solid 1/2" beige head, full curtain of lace. Aroma of malt and hops. Taste is full-bodied caramel malt that adds clear citrus hops on the swallow, only to have the malt pull even for a finish that has both lingering nicely. A superb IPA. High recommendations.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A terrific everyday IPA. Not west coast style--too malty--but 100% American in the powerful resiny hops. Very sessionable if not exactly low abv at 6.7. Pours amber with white head. Nose is spicy hops, pine resin. Flavor and palate is where the beer shines. Taste is sweet caramel malt followed by a rush of spicy hops for a dry finish. Very full bodied, but refreshing enough that it invites the next sip. Reasonable points of comparison would be Anchor liberty ale, DF 90 min. (sweeter and heavier), or Sierra Celebration, all of which blend assertive happiness with a firm caramel malt backbone.
