look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. can poured into tumbler.

A- Gold, with some copper hues. Off-white head. One finger. Fairly dense. A little lacing.

S- Sweet malty aroma, caramel and bread. Hop aroma is up there too. Citrus, orange.

T- Pretty smooth light flavor. Citrus, and some bread notes.

M- Smooth. Sweet, not overwhelmingly bitter. The finish is semi-dry.

O- This one isn't bad. I actually have to say I like this better than the 113 IPA.

3.34/5  rDev -12.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Servign Type - Can

Appearance - Dark tan, murky brown with a nice foamy 2 inch head, lots of lacing.

Smell - Danky hops, orange, a little pine. Some caramel malts and spices near the finish.

Taste - Much like the smell, some dank hops with some pine make up the most flavor. Some orange mixed with some lemon and some spices give it some flavor to a bland beer. Caramel malts come out some at the finish. Pretty much all that needs said about this beer.

Mouthfeel - Hops nail the tongue and bitter it up. Palate gets some spices and malts. Aftertaste is a little piney, bitter and warm.

Overall - Above average ipa from a above average brewery. Rather simple, easy to drink with just enough hop profile to enjoy. I can drink this again or I can never drink it again, im fine either way.

12 oz can poured into a pub-style pint glass.

Appearance
Gold with 2 fingers of creamy, white head. Good head retention with excellent clarity and light carbonation.

Nose
Damp pine, dank greens, wintermint, and caramel.

Taste
Watermelon and wintermint. Damp pine, pineapple, orange marmalade, and dank greenery. Smooth honey malt backbone. Notes of grapefruit and orange zest bring in a decent bitterness.

Mouthfeel
Medium-light bodied, juicy, crisp, moderately bitter, and off-dry.

Overall
Great flavor profile. I dig it!
