Can from Tipples. Pours a pretty, clear amber orange color with a small white head on top. Aroma of strong caramel malts, some bready notes, citrus notes, some mango. Flavor is some stale hop notes, dried grass, light citrus, lots of caramel malts, on the sweet side but still a bit of dankness here. Meh. Body is resinous and a bit juicy with medium carbonation and mild bitterness on the back end. Eh. This isn't terrible but with everything else available in the style that is excellent. out there, I don't know why anyone would choose this one.

Poured out of a can into a pint glass.

A – Deep golden yellow pour with two big fingers of white foam that sit in top like a ice cream float. Nice looker. Sticky lacing all down the glass.

S – Very floral smell with pine aromas, resin and citrus. Pleasant and stong.

T – Nice amount of hop bite right off. Grapefruit type of bitterness follows along that compliments it well. Not overpowering. Piney and earthy flavors. Finishes off with just a touch of sweetness. Solid all around.

M – Medium bodied with a nice amount of carbonation rolling around the palate. Finishes cleanly.

O – Very nice IPA. This is a damn easy drinker. Picked up just one can when I was in Savannah and wish I had a couple of more. I can see this being a great BBQ beer or just an easy drinker on a hot day.
