SAmpling a cellar temp 12 oz can poured into a snifter. Beer is a courtesy of my cousin Joe in NC. thanks bro!
The beer pours a clear bright copper hue with fluffy eggshell white head of 2 cm foaming up and fading slowly to a surface layer leaving some tightly packed lattice after each sip.
Aroma is some grassy and rindy hop notes. There is a bit of biscuit malt buried in the background of the nose.
First sip reveals crisp textured body with very fine and slightly spacious carbonation.
Flavor is some sweet grainy malt which rolls to a crisp hop bite featuring grapefruit rind and a general herbal astringency on the finish.
I dont get any alcohol heat or presence and find this to be a smooth drinking IPA that could be sessionable but would sneak up on you after a few.
certainly a well crafted beer with interesting qualities to make quaffing more than one a worthwhile endeavor.

Poured from a can into a shaker pint, the beer is a slightly hazy, bright, copper-orange coloring with a thin, low profile, clingy, bright white head. Aromas of tangerine, orange peel, subtle caramel highlights, and a biscuit backbone. Flavors are richly sweet forward, with a caramel backbone supporting a heavy tangerine and citrus component. Floral highlights throughout, with some grassy and woody notes, too. A bit on the rustic side, with a smooth, slightly dry body. The aftertaste is more of the citrus notes, with bits of grass and spice. The finish is slightly bitter, subtly dry, and with a grassy, citrus linger. Tasty and refreshing.
