Buy this frequently in cans. Excellent IPA.

Canned, don't see a date. Pours a slightly hazy amber with thin soapy white head, a few blobs down the glass. Smell: dried pineapple, peach note, resin. Taste: orange zest, resiny / woody, sugar cookie base cut by orange extract. Sticky finish. There're some nice things going on here.

Attained from Trader Joe's, Tampa. 6-pack cans. Says on the can: "...doesn't slap you in the face with bitterness."

6.5% ABV .:. 55 IBUs

A: Pours a murky brownish yellow. Not the typical robust copper that you usually get from an IPA, but definitely looks tasty. The head is what really gets me though; a thick, creamy, 3-finger pillow-top was poured into my frosty mug.

A: Getting that piney, resiny scent characteristic of IPA, but also a lot of maltiness with it. Might be the green can, but there may be a hint of sweet lime as well...

F: Good punch in the face of hops, (Centennial?). Not getting much in the way of fruits, but a lot of malty, breadiness too. And no real bitter after-taste! I wouldn't say this is a beer your girlfriend will like, but definitely tolerable to most palates.

M: Moderate level of carbonation, getting a bit of wateriness, but not too bad.

O: Pretty good, drinkable IPA. Doesn't have as much wow-factor as Jai Alai, Two-Hearted, Torpedo, and similar IPAs, but is definitely a great day-drinking choice. Love supporting FL breweries!

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Hazy copper color, just under two-fingers of fluffy white head, and relatively low visible carbonation.

S: A little diminished overall – citrus rind, resinous pine, and bready malt.

T: Big grapefruit rind hops, bready malt backbone with just a hint of caramel sweetness, some resin in the middle, and some flowery hops in the back end. Moderate amount of bitterness in the hang.

M: Medium body, average alcohol presence for style. Carbonation sensation does seem a touch on the low side.

O: A solid beer from a new brewery to me. But in the end, it's nothing that I would go out of my way for. Again, it's a crowded canned-IPA market these days, and this doesn't do much to stand out.

Can shared by Curran tonight.

Pours a light shade of orange, with a half inch head, and not a whole lot of lacing.

Smells sweet, some citrus, some pine, kind of just like every other IPA out there, unfortunately.

This tastes weirdly off, I can't really describe it. There's an orange-ish fruity hop flavor, with some lingering bitterness, but literally nothing else. Very one-dimensional. No malt flavor, no change in flavor as you drink it. It's perplexing.

It's medium bodied, and slightly syrupy in the mouthfeel, with a good amount of lingering bitterness. Not all that drinkable.

Not the best IPA I've ever had, by any stretch of the imagination.
