3.5/5 rDev -1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours a clear golden-orange with a tight, white head that leaves rings of lacing.
Smells of pine and earthy hops.
Tastes of the pine hops with a decent malt backbone. Hops lead off with citrus and pine along with a touch of fruit. Malts come through and add a bit of caramel and grainy sweetness. Finishes with a bit of earthy bitterness, but overall is malt forward.
Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly assertive amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is a solid IPA and I would like to check out more from this brewery.

4.01/5 rDev +12.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A: Clear, orange color. Two finger head that dies off fairly quickly. Laces quite nicely though.
S: Not a whole lot of nose. Hoppy. Orange. Some floral.
T: Gentle citrusy and floraly hops. Quite malty for an IPA. Toasty, caramel malts. Reasonably balanced but a gentle IPA.
M: Light, smooth, very easy drinking. Crisp, clean carbonation.
O: I reviewed this served from a bottle, but I much prefer it fresh from the brewery. Either way, a decent and very drinkable IPA.

3.31/5 rDev -7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: clear orange in color with a 1/4" head that breaks apart quickly.
Smell: light orange tones and a hint of floral bitterness are tough to pull from the glass.
Taste: light caramel, orange, a bit of pear, and some mild floral bitterness create a mellow flavored IPA.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp throughout. Short lasting aftertaste and mildly refreshing.
Overall: a so-so IPA that has some muted flavors but it is very easy to quaff.
Serving type: on-tap
