Pours a pale golden with a hint of copper along with a touch of haze. Half inch of off white cap offers decent retention and moderate lace.
Oily hop aroma with citrus and pine notes coming through in full battle regalia. Touch of sweetness in the background and showing a slight hint of alcohol.
Tastes of orange pith and pale malts. Not overly complex by any means but nice and smooth in the delivery. Finish is a bit brief however and the bitterness doesn't quite measure up to the hop aroma delivery.
Decent coarse in feel with a firm grainy cracker character and a decent hop bite. Shows a flash of orange oil again before a quick finish.
An easy drinking IPA though the apparent sweetness does detract a bit as it shortens the finish of the brew. Does expand with warming to some degree.

Consumed directly from can.
A - Can't really tell from the can, but looks to be a pale yellow color.
S - Very floral and earthy, with hemp, dandelion, and a bit of tropical melon.
T - Actually less potent than the scent. First grassy, spicy, hop flavors. Then a wave of malt sweetness followed by a touch of tropical melon and citrus flavors. The finish is fairly dry and bitter.
M - A very lively carbonation lifts up a medium, semi-creamy body.
O - While there is nothing exceptional about this beer, there is also nothing at all outputting about it either. It seems content not to swing for the fences, but still succeeds overall. It is an enjoyable sumertime IPA to have while camping, fishing, or, as the name suggests, watching a baseball game.
