Pours a thick, hazy gold. I like hazy ipas. I find them appealing. The nose is good. Tropical. Papaya, cantelop, peach. The flavor is well balanced. Not super complex, but not disappointing either. It's a solid beer. (216 characters)

22 oz bomber poured into glass.
L: Deep orange. Hazy.
Nice off-white head. Dissipates quickly, but leaves nice lacing
S: Some hops, and a little citrus
T: Hops are well balanced. There's a nice bitterness and a little sweetness. Has a pronounced orange/citrus taste (is that the Galaxy hops?)
F: Medium body. Medium carbonation.
O: Overall, a nice IPA. Not particularly hoppy, but very drinkable with a crisp citrus taste. (430 characters)

Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a half finger white head with decent retention and lacing. Aroma of bready malt, pineapple, grapefruit and citrus hops. Flavor follows with citrus, slightly piney hops, citrus rind, light tropical fruit, mild malt. Long, lingering citrus hop bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied. A nice citrusy IPA that emphasizes hops over malt, but still well balanced. A solid, enjoyable hoppy IPA from a brewery with a name that didn't inspire confidence, but still delivered. (538 characters)

Poured into a pint glass.

4.0 A: Moderately hazed light orange color. Two fingers of pillowy off-white head. Retention is very good and lots of lacing is left.

3.25 S: Surprisingly herbal with wildflowers and lemongrass. Smells almost like a saison. Dry citrus and peach underneath. Bready yeastiness and hints of caramel.

3.25 T: Tastes like it smells. Big herbal per above. Lots of peach, some lemon, hints of papaya. Again bready yeast and a like caramel maltiness.

3.25 M: Medium body. Chewy yeastiness. Mildly creamy and reasonably smooth.

3.0 D: I'm not a huge fan of herbal IPAs. It's okay, just not my preference. (642 characters)
