A: [3.00] Brownish/tan color. Very lackluster head formation. There are also "floaties" in the beer. Little flecks of white floating about. The ABV is listed at 6.2%. There is a best by date of 1/1/15 (so this is 2 weeks over due)

S: [3.25] I am getting malts and some nuttiness.

T: [3.50] Has nice bitter bite up front. I was surprised at the aggressiveness given the nose. I expected a malty IPA. The bitter start ends with a sweet malt finish.

M: [3.50] Maybe a little higher carbonation than normal. There is a bit of a dry finish with some hop bitterness lingering.

O: [3.25] I had low expectations based on the nose and the appearance - but this one did okay. It is not the greatest IPA but I'd drink another - especially if I could get one fresh.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured 12oz can into glass. 6.2% abv

Appearance- Hazy apricot orange with a lofty two-finger head.

Smell- Oranges, bready malt, and grains.

Taste- Citric hots first, and resembles tastes of orange and tangerines. Floral as well. Sweet malt flavors come through as well. The finish is dry and bitterness lingers in the palate.

Mouthfeel- Medium-heavy in body with ample carbonation. Smooth.

Overall- A sweet and refreshing IPA. Not on the strong side, but a decent entry level IPA. Good appropriate tastes make this a good offering. Quite smooth as well. Not bad at all.
