Hazy pure amber color. Thick and foamy beige 2 finger persistent head with some nice activity.

Sharp aromas of fruity citrus and toasty bread like. Strong highly bitter flavors of smoky orange peel and clove. Slightly missing some freshness.

Medium slick body with average carbonation. Strong and long mouth puckering and astringent finish. Powerful smoky bitter mouth coating of cloves and orange.

Overall : It's like chewing an orange peel, interesting taste but way too bitter.

Very, very hoppy, without much else to be said. A very bitter, dry--almost burnt--aftertaste that left me scratching my head. Not bad but not a keeper.

Serving Type: 500mL Can

A- Pours an Orangey Red colour (think cedar) topped by a 3 finger head that quickly dissipates to a think skim. Tons of lacing on the glass.

S- Citrusy Hop notes that are a classic representation of a West-Coast style IPA. Mild Pine notes.

T- This IPA is a hopbomb for sure. Not much other than citrus hops (lemon/grapefruit). Little bit of pine comes through

M- Medium mouthfeel with low carbonation.

O- Solid IPA and one of the better beers I've had from Shipyard. Tasty even with the high ABV.
