3.29/5 rDev -5.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25
16oz can from 4pk dated 3/22
A – Pours a dark shade of orange, with a tall off white head. Head thins to a small layer, leaving behind nice lacing.
S – Pretty muted, notes of orange peel, and a lot of sweet malts come through.
T – Citrus notes try to come through, but this still leans heavily on its malt backbone. I find it overly malty. The hops merely provide a bitterness, and not much else.
M – Not as sweet as I expected, body is a nice medium. Hops come through on a medium-long, dry finish.
O – Not bad for a couple bucks a can, pretty standard offering here though.

i definitely dont think i like this one as much as its little brother, the session edition, but its a serviceable ipa nevertheless. my critique rests not with the beer itself, but in a comparison to the other one. it seems like the hops are the exact same while the grain bill has been ramped up for more fermentables. i think you have to scale both up accordingly, because her the malt balances out what i liked so much about the session, its C hop vibrancy. its too tame here, too back seat, too crowded out. the grain is fresh and big and well placed in the flavor here, but it has lost some of its brightness. i do like the beer though, and had i not had the other one, i may view this one more favorably, unfair maybe, but true. i like the nutty malt character, i really do, and i like the way the hops sort of taste like good indica in the finish. may favorite feature though is the texture, it creams right up our of the can, and like heady, holds its hop character better in this format than it does being consumed from a glass. maybe intentional for the outdoor nature of the moab beer drinker, and that is genius in my mind. blue collar feel to the pint can guzzling, and i like that too...

3.88/5 rDev +11.5%

APPEARANCE: A fluffy head filling roughly a third of the top of my Funkwerks globe foams up on top of a nice, clear, orange beer. The stark white head remains on top for a while as it very slowly recedes. A thick ring of lacing is left around the top along with a nice cathedral-like lacing left below.
SMELL: Grassy on the nose along with a solid citrus backbone. Orange is the dominant citrus. Nice smell, but could be stronger.
TASTE: The citrus pulls through in the flavor much stronger and the orange still leads, but a nice grapefruit and grass punch towards the end backs it up nicely. The malt is there to balance and an almost chocolate-like flavor arrives near the end of each sip to sweeten in up just a touch.
MOUTHFEEL: Dry and hoppy to start with a semi-sweet, malty finish. The carbonation is relatively low, my notes say "half-way to nitro." This is a silky, smooth IPA.
OVERALL: Spending four days in Moab is always awesome, but this little treat adds to the experience. While the 7% canned version is definitely the way to go, I also enjoyed the 4% session version on tap. Good go-to, especially when you're in the area.
