"...helps animal rescue organizations." On label. I object! I support hundreds of "human rescue" organizations...which allow me to drink fine beer with a feeling of accomplishment. This is a very average IPA which wants to siphon my money to THEIR, not mine, cause!

Pours from 12 oz bottle a nice copper color with a small white head. Aroma of crystal and caramel malt, hops, citrus, pine, and spruce. Flavour of earthy hops, biscuity malts, floral and bitter rindy citrusy (lemon peel) hops with very light pine. No wow factor here.

From old notes:
Draft pour in New York wherever I’m at. Cloudy orange with tiny circle of white head. Fruity orange tangerine aroma. Fruity orange taste too. Mild bitter and hoppiness. Drinkable as shit - fruit juice

12 ounce bottle
A solid IPA is no Double Simcoe but works reasonably well as a regional session beer. Not once to sit on at all, it already felt as if the polish was coming off despite it being tasted as soon as possible. I doubt I would buy it again with so many other options in the area. Even so it defines a typical middle of the road IPA.
Aroma / Appearance - A cloudy coppery base shimmers with a foamy layer of eggshell decoration. Caramel, twigs, and earthy hops lend this an arboreal nature of Twix rolled in pine sap.
Flavor / Palate - The full bodied mouthfeel immediately fills the palate with a wave of caramel dipped oranges, oak, and strong citrus bursts. The dry transition carries to a warm hoppy finish typical of a well crafted IPA. Effective at getting the job done, the beer ultimately falls in the middle of the road with a blend of pine sap and apple. This is above the median for Weyerbacher.
