I do love tall boy cans craft beers, esp IPAs, but doesn't look too great, but still my first beer from this brewery. Thanks to rudzud for leaving this with me.

Pours a nice fluffy fizzy 1.5 finger head that fades at a med pace, decent spotty lacing, semi hazy honey orange colored beer.

NOse brings IPA, but so-so IPA hops, more like an IPA from 10 years ago. big earthy piney slight citrusy hops, a piney resinous forest floor like aroma that can be nice in moderation but a bit much on this one, a little candied orange peel and fluffy candy malts, also a bit of an herbal peppery almost hop oil like note.

Taste is even more out there, hops are there, but different hops than I'm used to, some herbal flavors, a little herbal tea, earthy pine forest floor, some candied orange peel, a bit of an oily pine. It also has some fruity flavors, hard to nail which fruits, but a weird blended fruit kinda thing, A bit of sweet almost toasty grainy malt base, mild sweetness, etc. Back end gets a bit more orange peel and zest like notes, chewy hops, etc. Finish is very bitter, little sticky but mostly dry, long bitter earthy piney hops, gets pretty spicy and chewy as well, a little herbal and oily too.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb.

overall OK, nothing too great, a bit overly on earthy herbal spicy piney hops, quite bitter esp on the finish that just doesn't go away, OK malt base but also not great. It's the style IPA that was good years ago, but these days with the great hop explosion I feel they could have made better hop choices for an IPA, although if this is what they were going for it's not bad.
