Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has an orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pine, malts. Taste is pine, malts, herbal, dry, hints of soap at the finish, mild bitterness. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall is ok, but nothing special.

Pours a clear golden orange color with a tight, white head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of floral hops mostly.

Tastes of the floral hops with a bit of malt baking. Hops lead off with mostly floral notes leading into some pine and a bit of grass. Some malt adds in next with a bit of caramel. Thins out towards the end before a citrusy finish.

Mouthfeel is medium-light with a slightly crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is an underwhelming IPA.

The color is quite nice but it reminds me of an Octoberfest rather then an IPA. Its malty with bitterness and weak in hoppiness. I didnt finish the can which was poured into a pint glass with a decent foam. Highly dissappointed.

Pretty good Classic IPA taste. Hoppy enough with some citrus, more lemon than grapefruit. Poured from a can into a pint glass. Bright cheerful orange hue. minimal carbonation. Over all, very decent and drinkable IPA.

Amber in color, 1/2" off white head, seems like there's plenty of crystal malt from the appearance. Aroma had no dry hopping or anything else going for it.

Substantially bitter, its the old tired formula, amp up bitterness, long c hop boil, no dry hops, crystal malt. Boring. If you like caramel and grapefruit, this is your jam. To me its just pedestrian and like 100s of other average ipas.

12 ounce can to wine glass
Appearance: Orange-light amber color
Smell: Nice aroma of hops
Taste: Nice initial taste, but lacks follow through
Mouth feel: slightly creamy. bitter after taste
Overall: Good beer, average, but not something to look forward to, there are far better IPAs in the Seattle area(like Lucille or Space Dust)
