Sampled from a 12oz can in a tulip pint glass. Thanks surge1311!

A - Golden with a slight haze and a firm off-white head. Loads of lacing.

S - Nice floral, citrusy and piney notes. Not powerful but pleasant.

T - A nice citrusy bitterness from start to finish. Lingers nicely! Some pine mixed in and enough malt to carry the hops.

M - A slight creaminess and a moderate carbonation.

O - A solid, easy drinking and enjoyable IPA. I made several trips to Birmingham back in the 90s and the beer scene was very limited. It's nice to see that's changing.

3.74/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours from the its aluminum container a delicately hazed, golden-orange body with a sizable, whitish, sudsy head.

Smell: Pale malts, with middling bready, grainy characteristics and a sweet-scented element to it a bit like caramel or toffee. Lightly floral, adequately citrusy hops, with some grassy hints to it all.

Taste: Bready pale malts, somewhat grainy in taste, with a caramelized sugar sweetness. Floral, lightly grassy, citrusy hops (lemon, orange) with a moderate degree of bitterness delivered.

Mouthfeel: This one falls just shy of medium-bodied. Medium-light carbonation.

Overall: Not bad. It has some nice flavors and an easy-going body to keep things mobile.

Came to the table in a standard pint a slight hazed deep burnt orange with a nice looking one finger creamy/frothy head that nver really leaves,I really liked the creamy texture of the head.Aromas were of herbal and grassy hops along with somewhat sweet bready malts,not a big citric resiny bomb.Flavors are alot like the nose with grassy and leafy hops giving off their flavor profile but not in your face,a camel maltiness hits quite hard as well.Not a big hopped up IPA but there is nice herbal hop notes.

Thanks to PALEMJ1 for sending this.

Pours a dark burnt orange color with golden apricot edges and a 2.5 finger yellowish, off-white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Really good retention with large chunks of soapy lacing left behind. Nice looking IPA.

Earthy, grassy aroma with resinous pine and oily hops countered by a subtle citrus character and sweet malt presence. Floral and slightly onion-y with some grass, pine needle and soil followed by some grapefruit and orange peel. Sweet malt backbone with caramel toffee and biscuit. Very earthy with soil/dirt and a stronger onion like quality than I expected.

On the fuller end of medium bodied with a dry, bitter hop presence that lingers over the sweeter notes and malt backbone into a bone dry finish. Dank and earthy with lots of grass, dank buds, pine needle and spruce tip followed by subtle grapefruit and citrus peel before finishing with a sweet malt backbone. The onion character is again noticeable, but it's nowhere near as strong as it was in the nose. Very dank and bitter with a decent amount of malt sweetness for balance. Hints of biscuit, cracker, toffee, caramel and booze toward the finish. Nicely balanced IPA but could use a bit more of a tropical/citrus fruit presence to round things out.
