Taster on tap at Wedge during RBWG. Mostly clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Good thicker splotchy lace. Nice head retention. Caramel malt, bruised citrus fruit. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry. Moderate sweet taste. Alright, kind of malty sweet IPA

on tap @ Wedge Brewing --- Head and lace disappear after a couple of minutes. Light hazy, very still orange amber brew. Taste is caramel malt that pushes medium hops ahead of it until the bitter crashes over in the finish. The hops then quickly disolve to reveal a little caramel again at the back end. Solid IPA.

On tap at the brewery during RBWG 2014. Pours a clear amber with an off white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of pine and dankness with an earthy grain backbone. Flavor has more earthy grain with a bit of grapefruit and musty pine.

Tap @ brewery. Orangey with thin dissipating head. Dank weedy, light cat piss, and a faint perfume- plus I almost get a meaty aroma. Bitter and a little perfumey. More bubbly feeling than some IPAs.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2016 had on tap at the brewery. a solid ipa. somewhat suprised at the rating of 95. think this is a decent, solid ipa but was by no means blown away. definitely the right color, nice aroma and balanaced all the way through. good maltiness to it- hops are there but not as much as I would like. sort of lacking the hoppy finish that the best ipa’s have mastered. some would say balanced but to they are playing it a bit safe with this one. appealing to the masses- can definitely see why it’s their most popular brew. very nice way to wash down the complimentary bowls of peanuts. wish they offered a flight so could have tasted them all - was intrigued by the hemp brown ale on tap. With Cory and Michelle. Maybe slightly better than I remember but previews review still stands. Decently hoppy but mostly just crushable. Hence the "IPA window". Nice citrus notes in there and not overly dank or resin. Easy.
