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.

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.

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.
