Poured from a pint sized can into a pint glass.

Pours a very attractive hazy orange with a nice white head. Leaves belgian lace.

Nice orange and hop aroma.

Flavor is rich and full, maltier than many IPA's. Lots of hops (of course) but an appropriate amount. Picking up notes of grapefruit, juniper, and oranges.

Nice full mouthfeel.

Overall, this is a very good beer. So glad it is brewed in Oklahoma!

Pours a clear golden-orange color. Moderate white head with very nice retention and lacing. Aroma is phenomenal with a huge burst of citrus and piney hops. Flavor is surprisingly well-balanced. Don't get me wrong, the hops still dominate, but it has a nice amount of caramel malt to keep it from being one dimensional. Medium bodied and smooth, clean finish. Hides the alcohol well and very easy to drink if you like hops. Very well done.

The beer comes in a deep blood orange color with with a decent amount of floaties (I suspect this can is a bit old). Beautiful white head with tons of lacing.

The aroma has juicy orange, as well as a bright green pine and resin. Quite bright and hoppy with some candy sweetness as well.

The flavor follows with mostly green pine, grassiness, grapefruit. Some bready malt in there without much sweetness. The finish is of sweet grapefruit. The finish is quite dry of bitter grapefruit pith and green grass. A generally light and drawn out bitterness until the finish, where is lots of drying with a decent bitterness.

A very easy drinking and hoppy IPA. I’d imagine this beer was better extremely fresh, but plesantly surprised by this extra. Not an in your face IPA, but an very sessionable in flavor beer that definitely matches with food.

Orange body with a creamy, white head. The aroma brings some grapefruit, assorted citrus, fresh hops. Smooth and easy drinking. Hop forward and quite tasty. This is certainly a fresh can. Malt presence is relatively minimal. Moderate bitterness in the late palate. 7% abv is masked gracefully. Drinks more like a 5-6% IPA. I'd have this again.
