The can pours out a dirty orange but bright sort of brew, which settles with opacity in the glass. It raises up a bubbly off-white head that doesn't quite make it to one finger but holds up and drops thin patching.
The nose is quite aromatic with hops, big and biting with pine resin and sharp grapefruit, with pithy orange rind note, spicy herb, and grass. The balance from the malts is very dry; it would be a little more well-rounded with a hint more sweetness, but it works pretty well and shows off the hops.
There is a certain sweetness from yeast and malt that shows in the flavor, mostly via some red apple and a little tropical fruit-like note. The spicy herb is there, with lots of citrus and resinous pine as the nose displays. Malts show more biscuit and malt here to even things out.
This beer is semi-dry in the feel from front to back. It's crisp and has some smoothness until the grains build up in the back of the throat. There's a note to it that's biting, and it's not crispness. Something just goes a little too sharp. It's pretty good overall, though, and a good beer in a tough style these days.

Pours clear gold with white head. Smell is generic with bitter hops that are quite faint. The taste is meh. Some grassy hop character, stale malts, bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light and fizzy. This drinks like a macro with a tinge of hops. Not a fan.

A - Pours a lighter amber color. It has a two finger bubbly fizzy offwhite head. Excellent retention

S - Very strong grapefruit aroma. really not much else present. Maybe some other ctirus.

T - Very good flavor. A little more complex than the aroma. Still, lots of grapefruit. Some grass is present. Nice caramel flavor from the malts balances the hops

M - A lighter medium bodied beer. Fairly smooth. Slick with a very slight burn

O - Not a bad IPA. Good flavor. I dont think I would call it sessionable even at lighter ABV. Lots of hops present.
