look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours from the can hazy amber with a good two finger chunky head. Leaves thick lacing all over the glass, retention is just about average. Appealing.

Caramel malt, fruit sweetness like that of pears, tangerine and white grape juice. Hops hidden amongst the sweetness, slight pine, more oranges and herbal bitter tones.

Sweet malt, rather sticky with sugary white fruit, candied pears, clementines and vinous fruit like white grapes. Hops are understated here presenting garden vegetable dirt, pine and herb flavor on the back end with a decent amount of bitterness, not enough to completely dry the stickiness of the malt. Alcohol mingles with the bitter finish and a metallic twinge.

Light ipa, a bit chalky on the finish and sticky. Average carbonation.

A bit bothersome that the hops present themselves only in the bitterness department, the malt profile while sticky is nicely complex. Light drinker that is easy to put down, just not what I like in an IPA.

Pours a slightly cloudy copper with a thick, chunky head that sticks to the cup. Flavor is fine here, piney and quite bitter but with good balance, and a very well crafted soft mouth feel. Not an incredibly distinct IPA but a very good reproduction of the style. An any time solid choice at a bar or from the bottle.

A: Murky. Burnt orange. Huge fluffy head.

S: Floral, resin, pine, caramel, malt

T: Sweet, floral and caramel upfront. Actually quite a bit of floral. A sweeter IPA but ends with with a resiny quality (though not a punch to the taste buds). ABV is very well hidden.

M: On the thinner side for me.

O: A very good IPA. I enjoyed it and will enjoy another one.
