12 oz bottle poured into a mug.

Appearance
Golden amber with 2 fingers of creamy white head. Excellent clarity with lively carbonation.

Nose
Dank greens, pine, candied citrus, and caramel.

Taste
Thick honey, caramel, and toffee backbone. Lightly dank hop flavors along with candied orange, honeydew, and pine resin.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, smooth, oily, and off-dry with a medium-light bitterness.

Overall
Pretty malt forward but it has a decent Simcoe hop profile hiding beneath.

Bottle bought at Bottlebox in Norfolk, VA.

This one pours a clear light amber, with a decent half inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like grapefruit and orange, with some caramel bready malt and dank pine.

The aroma is definitely better than the taste. This feels overly malty, and weak in the hop department. There are definitely hops here, I get some pine and grapefruit, maybe a bit of orange. It doesn't feel like it's a more balanced, English style IPA, it just feels like a poorly done American IPA. I think the bottle is fresh.

This is medium bodied, with a crisp mouthfeel, and a moderate amount of carbonation.

This was a bit of a lackluster IPA, to be honest.
