4.14/5 rDev +16.3%
smells uber hoppy with lots of lemon smell. you can smell the alcohol content which weighs in at 7+ %.
pours slightly a amber/gold body white lumpy very retentive head with lots of lace on the glass from a 1 pint and 6 ounce .
lots of hops and lemon lime a slight alcohol burn gives it a very refreshing feel . here’s also some nutty flavors maybe cashews or pistachio I can’t decide, but its good.

Pours hazed golden with a thin head that lasts. Some lacing sticks.
The smell of citrus and herbal/spicy hops come through as strong as the bready, caramel-ish malt. Some black pepper from the alcohol mixes in. Mild, but pleasant overall.
The taste is of herbal/floral spicing - with a touch of citrus. Caramel and bready/grainy malt balance it. Alcohol is quite noticeable, though not overbearing, in the finish.
The texture is slightly watery, but bitter taste is not washed out.
It's a more "balanced"/more mild IPA, but still enjoyable. Pretty easy to drink despite some heat from the alcohol. Overall, a pretty solid take on a standard American IPA.

22 oz, no freshness date.
Pours into a large tapered mug with a finger of cream colored foam on top, which settles to a patchy skim with minimal spotty lacing around the edges of the glass. Color is a dark hazy orange, not quite opaque but sufficiently murky. Tiny micro-sediment in suspension when inspected closely.
Faint aromas of caramel malt and citrus peel, fairly textbook.
A little citric orange peel bitterness arrives and lingers a little into the aftertaste. Pale and caramel malts comprise the base of the beer, balancing the adequate hop character. Medium bodied with trace malt sweetness at first, quickly becoming bitter. Overall it's a pretty good IPA, but similar to so many others on the market.
