Appearance – The body is a murky orange with hints of sediment and the pure white head exploded on an easy pour.

Smell – This is a beautifully balance hop profile with equal parts citrus, pine, and grapefruit. There’s a small malt backbone here as well but the hops steal the show.

Taste – The malts come on much bigger at the taste. There is some good caramel in there to go along with the hops that taste as they smell. This is an exceptionally balanced IPA.

Mouthfeel – This just is medium-bodied with some bitterness but not enough to be off-putting.

Drinkability – This is a big beer but not too big for the average drinker. It’s definitely one of the better, more quaffable big IPAs that I’ve ever had.

You immediately notice upon pouring there's a interesting angle to this IPA. Copper colored due to strong caramel malt presence, playing sweet to the significant hop bite. Good intensity.

12 oz. can - canned on 11/29/18 stamped on bottom - From a fifteen pack that I paid less than $20 for (at Sun Devil, Mesa, AZ):

Pours copper to amber. A foamy head leaves lacing.

The smell is of tropical fruits and caramel.

The taste is of tropical fruits (especially mango), some melon. Some spice. Plenty of (almost too much) caramel.

Pretty smooth. Abv well-covered. Slightly sticky. Full-bodied.

A solid - a bit "old school" - IPA. Fruity character balanced by caramel. Bittersweet. Worth the purchase and experience.
