4/5 rDev +5%
A: single finger head. Murkey amber.
S: wet and mildly hoppy
T: hoppy, piney with floral notes with a bitter aftertaste, more so than I like in my IPAs.
M: mild to moderate carbonation. Semi dry finish. Medium to full body.
O: as IPAs go, this is good but not memorable.

A - Pours with one and a half fingers of white foam, resting on top of a hazy, orange-copper body. The foam settles slowly and leaves nice, thick lace.
S - Pungent hop aroma with lots of pine and tropical fruit. Some bready malt in the background with just a hint of caramel.
T - Sweet malt up front with some bready character and a hint of toffee. Pine hop flavor in the middle with a hint of floral character. The beer finishes with dry bready malt and a strong, somewhat harsh bitterness.
M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a very dry finish.
D - The hop aroma is excellent, thought the flavor is a bit weaker. The fruity hop nose is rich and juicy but it is more one dimensional flavor wise with pine and some spicy, floral notes that just don't live up to the aroma. There is bready malt character throughout but it gets so dry in the finish that it leaves little to balance the stiff bitterness. Drinkable, but with a touch more flavor and some residual sweetness to even out the finish it could be even better.

12 oz can into a pint glass. Big thanks go to Stakem for hauling this one back from FL for me.
Pours a clear copper, with a couple fingers of foamy bright-white head. This maintains roughly a ½ finger or so of rich froth, which soaps the sides of the glass with lace. The aroma smells of pine, grapefruit, and spice, with a big underlying malty push of grainy toast and some sweeter caramel. The nose definitely has some flavor to it but overall isn’t very airy in the nostrils.
The taste is at least a bit more forceful with the hops, with a zesty grapefruit character and herbal tones that are buffered underneath by a malty backbone of toasted grains and caramel. This is definitely more balanced than the nose; with this finishing fairly aggressive as pith and pine stick to the tongue after each sip. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a firm creaminess that fills up the mouth but then glides along on some underlying oiliness. This has a little bit of warmth to it as well, which really brings out that assertive finish at times.
There were definitely some things to like here but the maltiness of the nose made me think that maybe this can had some age on it. It’s hard to say since the balance improved a lot in the taste once this warmed. I was intrigued enough though to check it out if I ever run across it again.

3.6/5 rDev -5.5%
A: Poured a orangish color with good carbonation and a nice white cap that provides some nice head retention, bubbles and light lacing
S: Caramel, citrus bouquet and pine
T: A noticable caramel malt with some light grapefruit, prange peel which transitons into a little bit of pine resin. The finish is pretty clean, some sort of light metal like twang, light booze sting and light hop bitterness
M: Medium bodied, well carbonated, pine and citrus sit on the palate.
O: A pretty good IPA. Balanced and I would drink again.

Finally getting caught up on my reviews from the 4th of July. Fron a 12oz can into a snifter. The brew appears a clear amber color with a tan cap that receeds
leaving patchy lace sticking to the glass.
The aroma is sweet and toasty grain with an inclusion of citrus hops that are a bit herbal. Quite rindy with a touch of alcohol across the back as it warms up.
The taste is toasty and sweet like caramel grain and then it turns catty with herbs and a pulpy hop bitterness. It lasts long into the aftertaste with resins and fruity bitter pulp flavoring that is quite herbal.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It displays a big hop impact and bitterness with little alcohol inclusion. Not the best ipa but pretty good as far as canned offerings go. It is worth a try but nothing to get crazy about.

on tap at the brewery
Poured a crystal clear amber with a very durable off-white head that left good lacing.
Aroma and flavor reflect more piney than citrusy hops; so not my ideal. Some herbal aspects mid-taste on. Moderately bitter (for style). Body is smooth but a tad too light. Very good carbonation.
O: a solid IPA with no apparent flaws but not particularly outstanding in any way.

Poured on-tap at the brewery in JAX, the beer was served in a pint glass. The beer presents a lovely bright yellow-orange color, with a thin ring of bubbles around the glass. Orange citrus and green hoppy aromas. This beer leaves a great lacing along the glass. Mid-bodied, with a flash of orange flavor before a truckload of hops punch you in the mouth. Very peppery and green on the finish. Good length of linger on this beer for all the flavor it carries. Creamy bodied, and almost a "thickness" that allows you to really absorb all the different nuances of flavors the beer has in store for you. Two thumbs up!

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.
Appearance: medium orange with a haze-free body and a moderate effervescence. Head is two fingers of tan foam with a bit of an orange cast. I rather like it.
Smell: funky, grapefruity hops dominate the aroma, but a little bit of caramel sweetness comes through from the malt. A little bit messy, but overall not bad at all.
Taste: a raspy bitterness comes through right up front and maintains through the finish. Piney, funky, citrusy hops are strong and dominating, although the sweetness is pretty high for balance. Pretty good, but it lacks finesse.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a light-to-medium carbonation. Not particularly creamy, but prickly enough for the style.
Overall: this is a pretty good IPA if you like 'em rough & ready. Unrefined, but unapologetic.
