3.68/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Standard golden bordering on orange IPA with off white 1 finger head. Modest lacing.

Smell: No real malts to speak of. The hops are bitter centric with citric support.

Taste: This is a bitter IPA with citric notes. I'd say this is closer to orange or maybe even slight hints of pine than anything else. It's good but not epic.

Mouthfeel: Typical and well done.

Drinkability: This is a well done IPA, but nothing to write home about.

Nice to have this six pack while traveling around MT and WY for the last two plus weeks. This is the last can of the pack and time for a review.

A- 12oz can poured into a chalice for the review with a fairly clear light amber body. A white head rises on the beer to almost two fingers with a frothy texture with some giant bubbles. A thick ring leaves sheets of lace followed by spots and drizzle.

S- Hop forward but no one note really jumps out to me, more of a melding of citrus, pine, floral, herbal and fruity hop aromas. The 7% ABV results in some malt coming out in the backdrop but not enough to take away from the hop aim.

T- Here the hop bouquet is somewhat citrus and pine forward with grapefruit and orange zest coming to mind and then the other flavors of stone fruit, floral, herbal and earthy come into play. A decent amount of malty sweetness with light cracked grain and slight caramel hints.

MF- Light-medium bodied with a silky and foamy texture. Agitation brings on some creaminess. Carbonation level is on the high side and a moderate clean bitterness finishes the beer off.

A lot of different hop flavors come into play but the beer never feels muddled. I can appreciate the bitter citrus zest and then get some hints of tangerine and stone fruit and the high carbonation and 7%ABV drive those flavors home. I really enjoyed having this over the last few weeks while camping, one of the better random finds of my trip so far.

Golden color in the glass with a nice head and excellent lacing on the glass. Nose is citrus hops. Tongue is a great well hopped IPA picking up citrus and pine... but lots of hops and in the double IPA territory. Good carbonation on the mouthfeel and lingers well after taste.
