From the can this beer pours crystal clear and amber yellow. It's not the color that bothers me its the large spongy almost sudsy head that doesn't last very long. The carbonation also looks weak and that's not a good sign.

The nose is a step in such a better direction. Heavy handed hop scent that sets the tone of this beer profile. Pine, tropical fruits and a smooth malty backbone. A very welcome nose on this IPA.

Taste delivers just like the nose with gobs of hop fresh hop flavors and solid malts balancing out the experience. Like the nose there is some citrus and mild pine but the hops diminish to a tea like flavor and a sweet cereal finish. Very tasty and refreshing.

The mouthfeel is solid but could use a touch more carbonation to add to the overal package. It seems a bit flat despite the excellent flavor and scent. This is a great brew and worth checking out especially in cans.

Baltic amber pour with dense off white head.

Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, lemon Pledge, sugar and piney. Nice aromatic bouquet.

Delightful balance of malt and hop. Dank and catty In the middle and piney resin in the back. Rather a safe attempt ie. missing some pizzaz or sparkle.

Light to medium bodied leaning towards accentuating malt. Some slickness.

Overall a solid IPA. I believe it needs more a fruit flavor approach and less malt. The nose is great and then I'm expecting the taste to follow and it don't happen. About as fresh as can be and it's local so why the hell not. Good backyard BBQ quaff that wouldn't offend say the BMC locals.

Pours light brown with a two to three finger head. Orangey and light to the nose. The taste is smooth at first impact and finishes with a buttery sweet aftertaste. The orangey flavors work well to counter-balance the booziness. It is on the lighter side, as far as IPA's are concerned, but it still possesses enough body to be considered one. Overall, this is a very drinkable beer. It might benefit from a bit more complexity taste-wise, but at its reasonable price, I'm not complaining.

Thanks to Tricerahops for this one.

Poured from a 12oz can, canned 02/15/2014.

A light chill haze on a gold body; solid 3-4 fingers worth of foam. Aroma is sweet hops, caramel, pineapple. Flavor has some mango, pineapple as well as sweet side of hops, fresh lemon. Feel is a bit dry and on the malty side. Good IPA but lacks a little oomph to it.
