look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

12 oz. can poured into a plastic cup.

Appearance - Hazy deep orange. Big off white head. Nice foamy surface.

Smell - Floral with some citrus. Big biscuit and toast malt. Sweet smelling.

Taste - Floral hops have turned to grapefruit. Malty. Not really sweet, but toasty. A little creamy. Bitter in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Creamy with medium carbonation. Medium body.

Overall - Average IPA with some unimpressive characteristics.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: light golden hue with a light haze and a ton of floaties. The tiny floaties swirl around amid a moderate effervescence. Head is a thin layer of frothy white foam. It's ... certainly something!

Smell: sweet malt with soapy/floral and rich, grassy hop elements. Normally not really my bag, but it sort of works here.

Taste: soapy and floral but with an herbal bite, a little bit of graininess and a definite bitterness that I don't usually find in many floral IPAs or APAs. It's still not totally my thing, but this beer definitely has its nicer points.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big carbonation and a great creaminess for an IPA.

Overall: not outstanding, but a totally serviceable IPA which falls on the lower end of the bitterness scale. It may not be completely to my taste, but it is interesting.

Can shared with stillmatic2232.

Pours a hazy dark orange. A small half inch head, and little splotches of lacing down the glass.

Smells quite citrusy, with some dank earthiness. Not much malt to speak of.

This IPA has a really bright, juicy taste with little bitterness. Some orange, pineapple, grapefruit, with only a smidgen of pine. A little bit of malt gives the beer some body, but doesn't add much to the flavor itself.

Medium bodied, crisp, but slightly sticky mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Very drinkable.

This was one was a big surprise as it was completely off my radar. Very tasty.

Hazy golden orange with tons of large floaters. Decent head with little retention or lacing.

Very nice tropical nose. Grapefruit, mango, and pineapple. A little bit of perfume.

Tropical hop flavors, like the nose, with very little malt backbone. Very dry and bitter.

Medium bodied with heavy carbonation. The bitterness is punishing on the palate.

Overall, a very nice beer. It could use a little balance to tone down the bitterness, but it has some very nice tropical aromas and flavors.

Pours light golden with a slight orange tint to it and a white frothy head. Aroma offers some passion fruit, grapefruit, toasted cereal grains, a touch of floral, and pine.Flavor follows suit. Crisp, active mouthfeel. Overall, a really nice IPA here. If they could add a little more depth/complexity/something to the malt foundation this beer could become stellar. Nothing wrong with the malt foundation as is, just that there is room for it to be even better, IMO. Would definitely drink again.

My rating: 4.00
