Deep amber color with a thick beige head with great retention and leaving laces.
Aroma with notes of resin, pine, caramel malt, grapefruit and lychees.
Flavor with notes of pine, grapefruit, floral resin, spices, toasted and caramel malts, lemon and tangerines. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of7.3% is absent.
Hoppy and assertive American IPA with piney, grapefruit and lemony notes on a malty backbone. I was expecting more from the nose and more complexity given I had previously the tangerine and grapefruit versions. That said this is a fine hoppy brew.

12 oz bottle poured in an IPA glass. best buy date was 11/25/17, drinking on 2/17/18
Look: hazy pale orange, 1 inch white foam
smell: dominated by malty, biscuity goodness. Not sure if hops faded? Bottle shows a slight tip towards more hoppy characteristics. Honey, grains. delicious
Taste: grain and malt. No bitterness at all. barely any hop characteristic. Still not sure if hops are faded from best buy date? As it warmed some bitterness developed.
tastes like a honey blonde that i have home brewed with friends. I'd like to try this fresh. Complexity and hop notes aren't what I was expecting.
Feel: A bit dry, but a good amount of carbonation to it.
Overall: might be a better beer fresh. Might be a victim of sitting on the total wine shelves. Worth another shot at a fresh bottle.

Sampling a can with a best by date about 3 months from now.

I have to say, this beer is really aweful. The aroma is and flavor is very solvent like. I pegged it as a 10-11% beer on my first sip.

It's heavy, thick, resinousness and doesn't taste good at all. If you like cloying sweet malt with noticeable alcohol vapors this may be the beer for you.

For me it's 5 and a half cans to the drain. Yuck.

This tasty brew was on sale at my local grocery grab, so I figured - HEY - why not?! Yet another out of state brewery that I'd never heard of before? Sign me the hell up! Am I glad I picked up a sixer of this for under eight bucks? Hell yeah!
OK, enough with the Q&A! On to the review....
You'd never guess the ABV from the taste; I thought this more of a "sessionable" drinker... That is what the kids call it these days, right? "Sessionable"? Whatever, I'm old as dirt, who cares.
Anyway, "Sessionable"? WRONG. FAKE NEWS. And in the end, it was I that was SAD.
Not sad that I purchased such a finely boxed mouth-present, but sad that I smashed all six in two hours.
Last thing I remember I took the dog out for a late night pisser. By the next morning when I woke up under the kitchen table, the dog was lost, I was missing a shoe, someone wrote "UIN . . ." in the snowbank in front of my house (I can neither confirm nor deny any collusion on that), and my wife was pissed all the way off.
Too be honest, I'm not sure why my wife was pissed; she's just always kinda like that.
Would recommend! (the Beer, not my wife... she sucks!)

(I'm doing this with a very fresh can from the brewery, marked to expire in three months)
A pretty dark orange haze color, medium head.
Smells like fresh bread and refreshing hops some bitterness present.
Taste has this perfect middle of the road hops taste, not bitter nor citrusy, somewhere in between yet strong nonetheless which is balanced with a sweet but very present malt
Overall a very good IPA, some breweries would call this a double. Very drinkable yet very flavorful.

pine and citrus rind dominate the flavor. It has a nice sweetness alongside the bitterness. Its not too heavy for an IPA. Its a little sour for an IPA and the flavor doesn't linger too long with food. I could see it being too sour for some, too bitter for others, but for people who enjoy IPAs, it would be an excellent break from the usual.
