12oz (355ml) bottle purchased from Ryan's Party Store in Port Huron, Michigan. Pours a deep copper orange with a thick ring of cream white head and strands of stringy lacing on the tulip. Smell is sweaty and doughy yeast (similar to the Prima Pils), barley, blood orange, red grapefruit, floral notes, taffy, and a small hint of lime. Some unusual aromas for an IPA but enticing nonetheless. Flavour is pine, caramel, slight woodiness, spicy and grassy hops, firm malt sweetness, bitter and citric finish, somewhat astringent. IBUs are apparent on the palate. Mouthfeel is prickly spiciness upfront, medium body, crisp carbonated bite with a juicy and lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. A solid candidate for a session, even if it's not the most intricate example of the style. I would grab this again.
