Pour is a clear deep amber with a fairly tight white head and nice lacing left behind. Nose is big, lots of juicy tropical fruit hops, some strong coriander spiced citrus, and pine resinous notes with a fairly powerful malt backbone leaning to the sweet side with a doughy presence. Taste is heavily balanced, malty dough and a moderately deep grain bill, citrus and herbal hops, faint bitterness, assertive carbonation with a creamy body.

This beer is light, a little darker than a Budweiser. White thin head that sticks around on the glass as you drink the beer. The smell is faint citrus and the taste is mediocre at best. Water downed citrus and pine. Mouthfeel is impressive compared to all of the other benchmarks. I could see this IPA being enjoyed on a hot summer day in Arizona. Easily a session IPA for beginner craft beer drinkers. They have to start somewhere :)

12 oz can. Poured into pub glass

A- pours a clear straw yellow giant fluffy two finger head that stays put
Sticky lacing coats the glass all the way to the end.

S- some caramel malt but hops dominate the aroma, citrus, mango, pine.

T- hop heavy citrus dominates with backdrops of light caramel malt and pine resin. Bitterness is at a great level for a sessionable ale.

M- near perfect. Flavor flows crisp and clear with a smooth mouthfeel. Bitterness doesn't kill flavor right away nor sharp carbonation. Smooth with the bitterness finishing
With a nice dry finish.

O- I'm an ipa snob and could drink this all day. Sessionable with a respectable punch of hops. This beer is easy to drink and has all the balance and flavor you could want. Nothing super fancy just a solid IPA.

12oz can at 41 F poured into a pilsner glass. Canned on 2/28/14.

Pours slightly hazy with a fairly large light tan head that fades fairly slowly. Smell is nice, hoppy, grassy (I just mowed the lawn), some citrus floral, somewhat subdued.

Taste is kind of muted version of already subdued aroma, with more malty toastiness.

Mouthfeel is a little coarse, a little abrasive. Overall, it's fine.

Pours a dark gold-orange into 16 oz tulip glass.

Faint nose of hops, not too strong.

Taste is a nice balance of hops and malty sweetness, neither is too strong. A slight bitterness in the finish occasionally, but again not overpowering.

Average mouthfeel - a good balanced, easy drinking IPA. Paired well with a tomato-basil brat.

A decent IPA all around. I would definitely drink again.
