3.39/5 rDev -9.4%
A: Dark orange. Very murky. Loosely packed large off white head. Attractive lacing.
S: A tinny pine character. Weak hop aroma overall, nothing assertive. Weak caramel malt.
M: Wouldn't quite call this creamy as the brewers do. Seems a little thin with moderate carbonation. Doughy malts and a little sticky.
T/O: Dirty, woodsy, earthy and grassy, light orange hop bite. Some medicinal and edelweiss herbal character leads into a moderately high bitterness.Pithy lemon and clean finish that rest for about a minute on the palate. This beer has some nice bones just needs to fill out a bit more. I don't find it as well balanced as others, the brewers say the hops are assertive, which they are. However, hops are fickle, and just because hops are abundant in a beer doesn't make it a great IPA unfortunately.
Pros: Nice price point, local, good bitterness for spicy food
Cons: Body doesn't match flavor, hops don't necessarily dominate in the 'best' way

4.05/5 rDev +8.3%
First time having this. In a can, poured in a glass. To me it smells like a lager. No potent or distinct smells. Taste is very smooth. At 7% it is just as easy to drink as a yuengling. Very refreshing. Very faint hop taste, smooth finish. I wouldn't say this is for hop heads, but overall a very good beer that could be refreshingly drank one after another.

12 ounce can.
w/o any freshness/canning date info
Pours hazed medium amber. Loose off white head and leaving decent looking rings and strands of lace.
On the nose its pine hops.
Respectable IPA, I get mostly pine and resin in the decent but not outstanding brew.
