look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Picked this up on my recent Northwest trip. Another of the bottles I shipped to myself.

Even with a slightly aggressive pour there is very little head that forms here. Not much in the way of lacing either. Pretty much a lightly hazy straight amber color with some orange highlights.

The aroma was light with pine notes and also notes of green…(grass)

The vegetal or green notes continue in the flavor. Very herbal and almost minty. Lot’s of pine with a strong bitter aftertaste that lingers a long time. Interesting malt flavors.

Almost a cask like feel to it. Very low carbonation and almost feels knocked down.

Decent, but not among the favorites of the bottles I’ve sent home.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Served from a can into a nonic pint glass

A- Poured a hazy bright golden color with a big fluffy white head with tight bubbles that leaves big clingy lace

S- Big piney hop aroma, lots of citrus, big astringency, and big sweet malts. Very aromatic

T- Huge sweet caramel malt flavor, some big floral hop character, citrus hop and kind of a sweet orange marmalade flavor as well, and finishes with lots of nondescript bitterness.

M- Pretty smooth mouthfeel, effervescent carbonation, dry finish

O- Great aroma on this beer, lots of nondescript bitterness, astringency, and malt character. This is good as it is, I wonder how fresh it is though.

Serving type: can

O - refreshing tasty relatively one dimensional brew.

3.83/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

pours a light copper orange/wheat color, thick dry head dies down to a persistent layer across the surface, moderate lacing throughout the glass. a tad bit of haze, but not much. hop forward smell, hints of malt, and drinks the way it smells. very clean, simple ipa. nothing terribly fancy going on here, but what's been done is done pretty well. ends with a sweet, dry finish. i'd like it just a bit more chewy, but it's by no means bad the way it is. not terribly memorable, but overall a solid B+, with points for not throwing any curve balls at me.
