Local beer just released in cans. Straight forward, high bitterness, which is advertise on can, but not followed with any floral scents. Refreshing but lacks complexity, bitterness lasts long after swallow. I might try again, but too many other great IPA's around to get on my list.

Medium orange hue with traces of sediment floating about, giving it a murky look. Balanced and smooth with good hop bite. On the less bitter side for an IPA. Not too shabby.

On-tap @ the brewery in Meridian ID. Served in a tall, thin fluted glass.

A: Hazy-as-heck golden orange with white head and lacing.

S: Sweeter, sugary crystal malt with lots of grapefruit and a good amount of sweet orange and pine. Fairly floral and citrusy and sweet.

T: Moderate bitterness, ample grapefruit and background pine character with orange zest and citrus pith...malt backbone is fair and lends a sweetness to the body.

MF: Straight-up medium bodied with a dry finish. Alcohol is invisible.

O: Not 'outstanding' but I scored this a '4' to bring the entire score into alignment. There are better IPA's, even locally, but this drinks just fine. Slanted Rock doesn't market this one as a hop bomb, and it certainly isn't, but the hop and malt profile work pretty well together. Tasty.
