A - Pours an offsetting murky amber color, a tad over 1 finger head, thin lacing that fades fast.
S - Oily hops, biscuity malt, sweet aroma, orange peel, grapefruit, dank herbal and earthy florals
T - You get that resiny hop flavor along with some malt and some orange peel, it actually has some skunky type flavor to it, not very appealing with a dark and dry hop bitterness.
M - Sticky and lingering.
O - Not impressed with the brew at all. I like the steelhead IPA much more than this. This has a bitter aroma that isnt enticing by any means. These type of IPA's arent among my favored palate profile, but I cant appreciate them. Its an about average IPA that I wouldnt get again.

On tap. Pours a golden amber with a small white head that has decent retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. The aroma is caramel, light grapefruit, orange, and some light floral notes. The taste is sweet orange, sugar cookie, and some light grapefruit. Finish has a decent bitterness with a lingering orange sweetness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. A bit too sweet.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
This is a pretty good, IPA. It pours a cloudy golden color, and is floral and fruity from hops. I doesn’t really stand out, but it’s not a bad beer. I enjoyed it all in all, and it's certainly worth having if it's around, but I don't think it's something I'd seek out.
