Hazy gold with one finger of five minute white head.
Smell is light pine and bready malt.
Taste is grapefruit zest resinous hop oil and a bit of malts.
Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation. Finish is long dry and bitter.
Overall a decent light IPA.

Can from Boise Co-op. Pours out a murky orange golden with high fluffy head. Gentle hoppy aroma, hops offer a bigger bite in the taste, and linger on through the finish. Hops pretty much dominate the whole brew.

Poured from 12oz can into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: murky light-orange hue with a two fingers of frothy ivory foam that dissipates slowly leaving a nice chunky lace on the glass. I like it a lot.

Smell: sweet malt with a nicely floral hop character. Subtle, but enjoyable.

Taste: moderately sweet malt with piney, earthy hop character. There's a little piquancy and a dash of minty, herbal and floral character. It's decent, but a little muddled.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a decent carbonation and all right creaminess.

Overall: this beer isn't bad, but it doesn't blow me away.

Pew. Pew. Pew.

Finger Gun pours a mostly transparent yet slightly cloudy blonde pale color with hints of mustard powder. The head is ridiculous in the best way, with a four finger retention that would make other IPAs blush. Diseased freckled overgrown lace left behind. Recede already so I can taste this without wearing it!

Pine, onion, and grapefruit in that order from strongest to weakest. Some slight fresh cut and washed fruit behind that (cantaloupe, melon, tangerine). Actually a bit of black pepper also surfaces, adding spice and bite to the aroma. This is nice.

Intense rush of tasty pine (and I never use those two denominators together) and grapefruit, with WHITE pepper this time, giving bite, spice, and gusto to the profile. It finishes out with juicy orange and orange peel, a slight resin (but not too much), and lingering spruce bitterness. Malts are muted but obviously pale. I love the honest balance of tropical and pine going on here. Seriously impressed with this juicy IPA.

It feels crisp, tart, slightly oily, and finishes with a dry slickness.

My overall thoughts : IPAs aren't my thing, but...seriously impressed here. A bit too-in-your-face to have another right off the bat, but from an objective stand point this one caters to both crowds and does a phenomenal job at it. Highly recommended.

Hazy brew with a predominantly chalky hop taste. Not light or "easy drinking," as the abv may suggest. Minimal malt backbone makes hops very in your face.

I can't get past the smell of dawn dish soap. Also with an after taste of soap. Maybe a bad 6er so is I will come back to this in the future. Haven't seen any other reviews noticing a soap flavor or nose?
