Thanks to Orthodoxkardia.

12oz bottle. Pours a translucent orange with very little head. Some lacing. The aroma is floral and spicy hops, malt, and some light citrus. The taste is bready malts followed by some spicy and floral hops. Light grapefruit and tangerine. Floral and spicy hops at the finish. Medium bodied. Nothing stands out too much with this one, but its not a bad beer by any means. Overall, decent but I wouldn't be heartbroken if I never had it again.

Pours a clear copper with a moderate head. Aroma is malty with dank/herbal hops. Taste is malt forward, butterscotch bittering with wet/dank hops. Tastes like a midwest IPA. I am guessing this utilizes the British style of yeast due to its caramel/butterscotch notes. A little too malty for my tastes but each to his own.

Pours a crystal clear orange amber with a thick firm head. Initially outstanding looking but head fades rather fast. Still, good looking.

Nose is muted fresh pineapple with lemon mousse tones. Pleasant and true to style but a little diluted in assertiveness.

Mouthfeel is medium/light in that there is a light diluted character again. Hints of "watered down" mouthfeel but not bad; still somewhat inviting.

Taste is light diluted bitter pine. Somewhat true to style but flavors are a bit simple and thin.

Finish is a long lasting dull pine bitter.

This is not bad beer; it is just not exceptional either. A bit more of a bright character and this could have some real potential to appeal.

16 ounce can poured into a tulip

A: Pours a light pale straw color with a white head, beer is clear, slight lacing and some head retention.

A: Not much on the aroma, really lacking in hops, malts come through pretty strong, might be an old can, no date.

T: Slight citrus and pine hops on the flavor, mild bitterness, finish has aftertaste of pine, hint of malts.

M: Light bodied with a semi-dry finish.

O: Not much of an IPA compared to the many offerings available, maybe but an old can, date on bottom says August 2017.
