3.81/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pouring a bit of the can into a snifter to get the look and smell, taste and feel are out of the can

Pours a cloudy orange and amber gold with a finger of foam. Transparency around 60%, moderate carbonation stemming from the center, alright lacing and retention. This would probably be more clear if it was fresher

Smells of strong citrus and earthy hops- a lot of floral pine with a touch of grapefruit, back up by a fairly strong and very sweet caramel malt. Again freshness would probably improve this aspect of the beer also, still pretty good

Taste is with the nose, a nice light hoppy flavor of pine and citrus balanced well against a sweet caramel malt and a touch of alcohol. Definitely not the most exciting, but pretty solid none the less.

Feel is a medium/light body with a wet finish. Not very bitter at all (44 ibu) and would probably make a good gateway ipa. Alcohol is concealed and finish is smooth. This stuff is pretty drinkable

Overall while 'epic' is a bit of an over statement of this beer, this stuff is pretty good especially on a warm summer day. I feel like it's a bit underscored, and the bros giving it a 68 further solidifies they're ineptness. Worth a try if available, ever since my shop stopped selling hop 'ottin this is my go to canned beer

3.86/5  rDev +6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a clear orange with a foamy orange-tan 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, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with grapefruit juice 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 good beer with a tasty citrus forward hop presence that makes this one easy to drink.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Translucent copper orange with a white head.

S: Tropical fruit, mango, pineapple, passionfruit, papaya in the nose.

T: Pine comes out up front in the taste, followed by orange, papaya, pineapple, grapefruit peel and maybe a little mango. Some malt as well, but the hop character is much stronger.

M: Medium bodied and smoothish.

O: One of the best IPAs I've ever had. This is an amazing brewery from what I can tell. I'll have to visit it sometime.
