12 ounce can poured into an Eau Benite glass. They've got the appearance dialed in; this stuff is unfiltered way past the point of haziness and there's a huge soapy head that throws the lace left and right.

Otherwise... there's some work to be done here. An odd cardboardish aroma overpowers more appropriate smells of leafy and citric hops. The cardboard continues to rear its ugly head as the dominant flavor. Perhaps something went wrong with this particular can; there's a nice pop of bitterness and what seems to be a decent beer somewhere in there, but the off flavor just can't be overlooked. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. I'm inclined to give this a shot another time, perhaps in a bottle or on tap instead.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy dark golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of hops, pine. Taste is very bitter, some pine, unbalanced and not very good. Feels medium bodied and very bitter in the mouth and overall I did not care so much for this beer.

2.8/5  rDev -24.5%
look: 1 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

A: very cloudy, had a tablespoon of sediment in one pour. The rest were less than a teaspoon.
S: a nice piney smell, a little bit stale.
T: light bodied but crisp.
M: a bit over carbonated, however light for an IPA
O: needs a lot of work. The pour was difficult because of the over finished product. The sediment in the bottom was not expected from a craft beer. Really unacceptable.

I unfortunately got an over-primed bottle....so the taste and smell are affected severely. The beer poured hazy orange with massive fizzy head. The smell and taste as mentioned above are similar to other over-primed beers. There is that bitter citrus and sweet malt base. The mouthfeel was medium in body with huge carbonation. Overall, I'm disappointed...hopefully others have found joy in this beer.

This is an alright IPA, but it was different than the ones I have been drinking lately. It had the hop presence there for sure, but it had something that was off putting to me which I will get to in a minute. But first...

Appearance: Nice golden straw color, lots of frothy head that never seemed to go away. It was served on tap and was extremely cold, which may have been some of the problem.

Smell: IPA, floral, sweet a little citrus fruit bouquet going on but not a real piney resinous smell going on. Kind of get a little of that off odor given from wheat beers.

Taste: The same type of flavors are going on but I couldn't figure out if they may have tried to add some wheat beer components to this or what, but I was definitely getting that rotten cabbage thing I get from wheat beers mixed into the hop bitterness, it was present maybe not powerful enough to turn me off, but there was something going on with it that reminded me of a wheat beer. I have not had a wheat beer I liked. It is my least favorite style of all. It seems to be a gateway, or "chick" beer style and I have never been a fan, If you have to add a slice of orange, just order a damn margarita or something out of the slushy alcohol machine. Anyway, this is my only downfall with this beer. Overall it was solid but i was offput by the wheat beer aroma and flavor I detected. Some may love it for that.

Serving type: on-tap
