3.53/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

From a 12 ounce can.
Hazy gold with two fingers of off white head and good lacing.
Smell is mildly bitter resins.
Taste is medium resin bitterness with just a touch of malts.
Mouthfeel is light to medium.
Overall a medium level IPA. Nothing bad to report but mostly average. Hops are flat line pine bitterness with nothing all that interesting.

can picked up locally...not dated, but these hit town not too long ago. although age is always suspect on an alaskan can in NY.

a - murky orange with frothy oily head that left big chunky lace on the glass. thin soft bubbly head hangs.

n - overripe citric punch...fairly resinous. big malt match giving it almost a barleywine beefiness.

t/m - opens with a pine cone bitter wash, soft and even...followed by the resinous citric hop. the bitterness is even and throughout the palate. leaves a coat of tangy piney bitterness in my mouth. the toffee malt is also equally big and the body is full making it feel bigger than it actually is. not a bad brew, wish i knew how fresh this was...but more of a one off than a regular 6'er type of beer for me.

Poured from a can into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a thin off-white head that dissipates to light patches. Aroma of light caramel and bready malt, citrus hops and orange family citrus. Flavor follows with a caramel malt body with some biscuit, supporting citrusy, slightly piney hops. Finshes with a somewhat resiny, pine influenced hop bitterness. Medium bodied. A good, but not stand-out IPA, pleasant, but somewhat subdued, hop flavors.

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, biscuit, earth, and slight citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with earth and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is fairly earthy in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle.
