3.74/5 rDev +1.1%
A: This poured a nearly clear gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like nectarines and oranges and pine, with some sweet honey malt.
T: It tasted like bitter pine and unripe grapefruit, with some oranges and honey. It had a clean bittersweet aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a nice IPA, with simple but good scent and taste and body. The finish was bitter but otherwise smooth, so not difficult to drink. Nothing special about this brew, but not bad either.

12 oz can, fridge temp, snifter, no freshness info.
Pours a hazy deep orange color. Really, big, dense, billowy head, off white in color. Good head retention, but as it fades it leaves some really nice lacing and a nice rocky appearance.
Pretty balanced aroma. Bready, biscuity malt seems to come out first. Resin, grapefruit, pine, a touch floral.
The balance of the taste leans more to the hoppier side of things. You can tell your simple, classic c hops were used in this one. Pine resin, grapefruit citrus, a bit floral with some nice bready malt to round it out. Quite a bitter beer which lingers well after the finish.
Medium bodied, easy drinking.
This is a run of the mill "good" IPA. If this were a local beer or something, I could see consuming lots of this. As it is, I probably wouldn't buy this again, but worth one try atleast. Beers that come to mind that remind me of this might be 60 minute or two hearted.
