3.53/5 rDev -4.6%
Poured from 12oz can into my Diamond Knot pint glass.
Appearance: medium orange hue with a light haze and a light effervescence. Head poured a thin finger of creamy ivory foam. Nothing special, but not bad.
Smell: malty, with lots of bread and biscuit right up front. Hops are citrusy and a bit earthy. Not completely to my taste, but it's clean. The overall effect is quite autumnal.
Taste: quite a bit sweeter than the aroma would suggest; it's quite earthy with a big, toasty, biscuity malt and earthy hops with a bit of citrus thrown in. Again, it seems like a well-crafted beer, but all this biscuit malt is not really to my taste.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess.
Overall: could be worth a shot if you like toastier, maltier IPAs.

12oz : SN IPA Glass
Lightly hazy, coppery orange, with a foamy off white head.
Lightly citrusy, piney notes. Fairly strong caramel malt backbone, a bit more than I like in an IPA.
Medium+, foamy body.
A decent beer, a bit more malt forward than I prefer in an IPA.

3.49/5 rDev -5.7%
On draught at MSBC, appearance is clear brownish orange with a faint white skim. A little sticky lace.
Smell is citrusy, orange, some sugars.
Taste is orange citrus hops, a little sugary, and grainy. Not the best execution, but good bright West coast style.
Mouthfeel is solid, leaning towards the classic softly carbonated MSBC fullness. Dry, medium to med-light bodied.
Drinkability is fine, pretty tasty, in spite of the graininess, although I find the orange marmelade to be too one-note to keep my attention.
