Poured from a pint can into glassware, pours a rusty orange with a nice fluffy head that's just a bit off white. Nice lacing all the way down the glass.
Smell is a bit muted, a little bit of carmel from the malt but mostly citrusy tangerine aroma from the hops.
On the tongue the malt takes a bit more presence, the carmel is still present but hints of dark fruits and burnt biscuits are faintly detectable. The hops also make themselves known, mostly imparting pithy citrus as well as pine. A fair amount of sweetness that is perhaps overbalanced by the pithy qualities of the hops.
A nice beer on the tongue, quite thick and nicely carbonated. Easily drinkable and does a good job at hiding its high alcohol content.
Overall a solid IIPA that is decently drinkable but does little to excite due to its lack of complexity.

Another great IPA that I think everyone should try it smelled great,wasn't hard to go down and didn't leave that horrible bitter aftertaste in your mouth when your done drinking it. Just wish I would have poured it In a glass rather than straight from the bottle but other than that it was great
