  • Pours a deep golden color with a quarter inch head. Head has good retention with nice lacing.

    Aroma is strong and not what I was expecting from an IPA. I am getting lots of yeast, bread and grain type aromas mixed with a citrus hops.

    Taste is nice and grows on me as I am drinking it. I am getting a nice balance between the light sweet malt body and citrus hop finish. This beer starts out strong with the bread and malt type character and works in to a citrus hops with a bitter on the finish.

    Mouthfeel is rich and creamy. Medium body with medium carbonation.

    Overall I am enjoying this beer. The aroma is a very unique to me, as I am not used to the strong malt and bread mixed with the citrus. This is not a style that I have had very often with an IPA and I am enjoying the change.

  • Poured clear with a big, white, fluffy foam. Fair amount of retention and some lacing. I was expecting an amber color.

    Aroma is of bready malt with a touch of sweet caramel malt. Malt scents are balanced by citrus hops.

    The taste starts off with bready, grainy malts. Finishes with citrus, grapefruit hops. Some bitterness that lingers.

    Light carbonation and mouthfeel with slight oiliness.

    Good but not great. Has a little twist: big bready malt both on the nose and palate. This isn't something I expected. If you like malty IPAs, then by all means, find yourself some. If you like smooth or fairly hoppy IPAs, don't know if you will find it all that appealing. Enjoy!
