3.53/5  rDev -3.6%
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.

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.

12 oz single purchased from Capital Market in Salem. $1.70 Pours a slightly murky dull orange colour with a nice sized thick and frothy off white head. Fruity, citrus aromas mainly with some light caramel malt backing,citrus hops resemble orange peel and some lemon zest. Actually OK. Taste the hops are more aggressive away from the citra and to the cascade and Chinook..malts still strong but barely contain the exuberance of the hopping. Nice mouth feel the raucous carbonation leads to great drinkability.Very nice can of beer here!

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.
