Bought this beer in a can and poured it into my top hops glass. The beer pours a beautiful light amber with a nice one inch head that dissipates quickly. The beer does not leave much if any lacing on the glass. The nose is a nice spicy grass; it’s not super strong but gives you a good idea of what this beer is going to taste like. And the beer tastes exactly like how it smells with those grassy & citrus hops backed up by light bread malts, really a great balance going on here. There is mild carbonation that is smooth on the tongue and goes down nice and easy. Overall this is a very pleasant IPA that is reminiscent of some of the Oregon hoppy beers I’ve had in the past.

A: Opaque orange with a white head.
S: Lots of orange, sweet mango and tangerine in the nose.
T: Starts off with a touch of orange, then orange peel, pine, then sweet nectary tangerine and mango in the finish.
M: Medium bodied and smooth for an IPA.
O: A really good IPA. Definitely recommended.

A-I will lump the can into appearance. I hate this can. I forgot I put it into my fridge and when I noticed it again I thought someone left a rogue Miller High Life in there. The beers looks fine though. All orange and foamy and such.
S-Very zesty citrus medley. Pungent grapefruit, light lemons maybe even lime? It's got some pop to it, but not much in the way of complexity. Tangy orange juice.
T-Stressed grapefruit to the max, underlying pine. Oranges. After a few sips I get accustomed to its sneakily portly malt bill.
M-A truly bitter cup of 'the creature'. This one lingers in its bitterness. No booze. Relatively easy to drink.
O/D-A solid IPA. This one won't enlighten you with its intricacies but it's got plenty of pop.

For the style this beer did not hit the spot as expected with bitterness and flagship carbonation, seeking the missing strong presence of finishing hops was not hit first in the finish department for this dance.. A little dry a little piney and royally florally and the ladies didn't sing it home. Could have a couple of these with no complaints.

Poured into a Harpoon Leviathan. Thanks Josh
A- Nice thick, sticky head. Beautiful appearance.
S - Citrus notes up front. Not as sharp or pronounced as I thought. Rather subdued. Pleasant though.
T - very nice flavor. Just on the side of bitter in terms of balance. Great hop character. Malt is nicely in background. A slight honey note. Deceptive on abv.
M - Slightly thicker mouth than use to for style. Smooth though. Pleasant carbonation.
O - an excellent beer. Well balanced for the style and deceivingly drinkable. Would love this on the shelves here.
