4.46/5 rDev +9.3%
S: Very fresh-cut grass like, resiny hoppiness, intense, candy-like grapefruit, pine with a prominent malt aroma in the background.
L: Hazy dark burnt orange. White creamy head that dissipates. Ok lacing.
T: Big malt backbone followed quickly by a grassy, fresh hoppiness. Medium, grassy bitterness, quite smooth. Grapefruit peel and fresh cut grass hop taste with some pine. Has a very bisquity maltiness, but not heavy or masking the hops. Finishes dry with some resin.
M: Medium full body, refreshing, medium carbonation.
A very unique IPA, but i loved it. Loved the grassiness with the grapefruit/pine, almost had a negroni taste to it. Malt backbone elevated the without being dentrimental, rare in an IPA. A must try.

4/5 rDev -2%
Easy drinking IPA with a citrus hop and a hint of apple. Hops lean towards bitterness more than aroma or flavour. Not bad, but fairly middling in all respects - moderate carbonation, light-medium body. Some fruit, some graininess in the back, some apple and grapefruit. Fairly bitter. Maybe a bit lemony.

Poured into a snifter. Bottom of can says 03/01/? Helpful.
A- Pours a dark amber color with a 1/2 inch of white head that retains for a good while before becoming a very bubbly 1/8 inch head. Very sticky sheet of lacing slides ever-so-slowly down the glass.
S- Sweet, almost flowery bouquet of citrusy hops and biscuity malt.
T- Taste is very malt-forward lending more of a sweet breadiness than bitterness. The hops are there with some grassy bite but it's not pervasive like in a lot of extreme American IPAs. More notes of caramel and crust than citrus or pine.
M- Pretty standard with a nice amount of medium carbonation plus a tad dry finish. Medium body.
O- While it's very drinkable for a 6.8% ABV, I could probably think of a few session IPAs I like better than this. But thank you BlackBelt5112203 for the bonus beer!

Smell (4.00) – Wheaty with a good hop presence. Hints of lemon and grapefruit. Mostly a wheat presence. Maybe some caramel?
Appearance (4.00) – Pours from a 12oz can into a very large wine glass. Dirty, hazy lemon color. Looks like a lemonade gone bad – or like even kind of like iced tea. Lacing is not too great, possibly due to the temperature. Lots of sediment.
Taste (4.50) – Hello lemon. Mix of hops, lemon, and wheat. I served it a bit cold so the hops are really down played. Front is mostly hoppy and has a great crunch to it. Finish contains the lemon and has the hops smooth out.
Mouthfeel (4.00) – Good crunch, great carbonation, very refreshing. Drinkable for the amount of IBU it has.
Overall (4.25) - Pretty good IPA. I'm always in pursuit of some intense hops and this one certainly delivers . Its not the most complex beer, but it does have some stuff going on.

Poured this American IPA from a 12 oz can into a pint glass. Poured a hazy straw color, produced a thick off white head, excellent retention and thick rings of lace left on the glass. The aroma consisted of toasted malt, sweet caramel, lemon citrus and floral hops. Medium bodied, a foundation of pale malt, toast, caramel, lemon rind, and heavy dose of grassy hops. Well balanced, complex hop flavor.
