Pours amber/copper/orange with a medium creamy head that leaves lots of film/spotting around the glass. Nose is a milder melon/pine than expected with a bit of earthy quality as well. Taste is rounded/malty up front with bitter hops building and overtaking. Mint at the finish. Overall a solid beer that is not in your face but remains interesting.

Comes in can, nice. Phrasing. . .

A real light orange/yellow appearance, 1/2" white head. Mild Oregon berry fruitiness and citric grapefruit hop aroma.

Taste is an active lifestyle ipa, this isn't weighed down heavy with crystal malt or or shit ton of fancy proprietary hops. Its a standard west coast ipa before the citra/mosaic/new zealand explosion of stuff. Might have simcoe and amarillo, but that's as new as it gets, other than that drops some pale toasted malts with Columbus and Cascade hops I would suspect. Always enjoyable stuff.

Nice west coast IPA. Dark color, slightly lighter than an amber. The smell is actually a little more antlers than I expected. The taste is relatively mild for a west coaster, with slightly less citrus/grapefruit and more generic bitterness.
