3.8/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a chill-hazed & effervescent caramel with 3+ fingers of cream colored head. Stays hazy, nice lacing & head retention

S: Bready, tropical fruit notes, not much else

T: Breadyness, caramel, pineapple & woody hop notes. More bready sweetness as this warms, some pineapple, orange peel & woody hops. Finishes with pineapple, a little grapefruit, breadyness, & a little dryness

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, a little grainy, skews a little sweet, but bitterness swings back in as it warms

Drinks easy, tasty take on the style, wish it was little more hop forward in the nose...

3.79/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

12 oz. can poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy copper body. Clear body until the sediment flows in. Clouds it up. Small white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Citrus. Grapefruit. Light sweetness. Toasted malt.

Taste - Grapefruit hops. Toasty malt. Bready and grainy. Slightly sweet. Low bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium light. Drinkable and well carbonated.

Overall - Not very exciting, but drinkable.

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.
