12 oz can into a wine glass.

A: Pours a clear copper color. The head is about a finger high, with an eggshell shade. Retention is pretty good for the style, and the stickiness of the head's texture means plenty of lacing is left behind.

S: This lands more on the citrusy/fruity side rather than the piny/dank side in terms of hop presence. After a while, it develops some herbaceous tones. No real aromatic complexity here - still, it's not like an IPA needs to be complex. Just give me an assload of fruit-laden hop notes and everything will be peachy.

T/M: Like most IPAs, it starts with citrusy hops and ends with malty touches of caramel. That's pretty much the gist of the flavor profile, but - and I don't know exactly what - there's just something about that helps it rise above the average IPA. Maybe it's the softness of the malt backbone? Or maybe, it's how that soft texture leads into a dry, crisp finish? Or, just maybe it's the kiss of bitterness that balances the malty sweetness so well? Everything here just seems a bit more delicate than the standard Johnny-come-lately style examples. The carbonation is also perfect - it carries enough flavor to the palate, but doesn't come off with any harshness.

O: Solid, solid IPA. The sweetness works in concert with the hop profile quite well. It's just a really nice, casual, easy drinking IPA, and I'd definitely drink the hell out of it again.

A: The beer is clear amber yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that gradually died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose—oranges seem to stand out in particular—along with slight hints of tropical fruits.
T: Much like the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of citrusy hops and has a moderate amount of associated bitterness. Hints of pine resin hops and caramel malts are also noticeable.
M: It feels medium-bodied and quite crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation and a slight amount of dryness.
O: The hops in this beer tasted very fresh. It had a nice blast of citrusy flavors but wasn't that difficult to drink. This is something I could make as one of my go-to local IPAs.
