The other reviews sum this beer up. It smells like cat piss. Since when is this desirable? 0/25

As soon as I took my first sip I realized it also tasted like cat piss. 0/25

Did I mention its the same color as the piss of a dehydrated cat? 0/25

At least I absorbed some alcohol when I drank it, however since it looks, smells and tastes like cat piss, I promptly vomited what I can only assume was fermented cat piss. 1/25

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A- poured gingerly into a snifter. clear golden with very little head.
S- orange, lemony, very floral and piney
T- sticky hops, pine, mint, orange marmalade, not much of a malt profile
M- thin body with moderate carbonation. Resinous hops coat the palate. It's almost numbing.
O- underwhelming. It lives up to the name very dank and resinous but lacks in aroma and more complex flavors.

Had a pint on tap in Santa Fe.

The pour was golden; high carbonation. Nose was strong citrus with heavy grapefruit overtones. Head was modest; about a finger's width.

Taste was solid hops but with enough malt overtones to make this a very drinkable brew. It reminded me a lot of the La Cumbre Full Nelson, but the bit of malt flavor made this much more enjoyable. It paired well with a green chile cheeseburger.

Bottle poured into a bell tulip. Bright orange-yellow color, slightly hazed, with a finger or so of frothy white head that eventually sank to a collar and held there, dotting the glass with lace. The aroma was mostly floral, lesser notes of citrus rind and pine needles. Taste was good, but not quite as inviting as the aroma. Floral and herbal notes, citrus zest bringing in a solid yet low-key bitterness, pine resin, with a small, crackery malt complex. Mouthfeel was on the lighter-side of medium, which was nice, and this was a pretty easy drinker. Not really "dank" as compared to several other IPAs out there. A pretty average IPA overall, with nothing really setting it apart from many other easily obtainable options. But it was still a good beer.

Received this as an extra from @hambone85.

Appearance: orangey yellow with a half inch of head from a fairly aggressive pour.

Nose: grapefruit, orange peel, and a hint of mango.

Taste: orange and grapefruit, the malt flavor increases as as it warmed.

Mouthfeel: smooth with medium carbonation.

Overall: a nice IPA that I look forward to trying again.
