look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a hazy golden orange in color with minimal amounts of visible carbonation and some orange + amber highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the surface of the beer with a couple of small slightly thicker patches and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of caramel malts with some light aromas of pine hops and some citrus/orange hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of caramel malts without a lot of sweetness along with some moderate flavors of citrus/orange hops (sort of a mandarin orange flavor). There are some lighter notes of pine and herbal hops as well. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness which fade pretty quickly.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp and smooth.

O: Probably closer to the IPA end of APAs, there is a little more bitterness and hop flavor than I expected for the style. Enjoyable and pretty easy to drink but nothing about the beer really stands out. Slightly strange how the citrus/orange have a slightly syrupy sweet taste.

Serving type: can

Pours a cloudy, golden/orange color. 2/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, floral hops, slight sweet malt, slight alcohol, and a hint of pale malt. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of floral hops, hops, hint of earthy malt, slight sweet malt, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, good appearance, decent aroma, and decent blend.

Serving type: on-tap

Can poured into pint.

Three finger off white head; mild carbonation, straw gold body.

Smells: grapefruit, pine, and resin.

Taste: pine, hop, grapefruit, and a nice bitter finish is at the end.

Mouthfeel: superb

Overall: this is an excellent beer that showcases dry hopping. I do not think I would commit to a six pack though.

This seems to cross pretty close to the IPA territory. Fairly intense characteristics. Hops and malts are both there in abundance. The flavor kind of thins out rather quickly. Nice to drink. Could have done with a more rounded out flavor profile, but this is still pretty nice. Always down to try a new canned beer. And a new brewery to top it off.
