Shared at a 10K review beer tasting; drank from a Hill Farmstead stemmed snifter.
Thanks to Lubiere (RB) for the bottle!

Pours straw in color with 1 finger of white head with a touch of lacing. A nice nose of floral hops with some spice, lemon and hints of caramel malt. On the palate, the toasted grains comes first followed by dry citrus (grapefruit), pine and some floral notes. It has medium body a nice amount of carbonation. Nice and tasty.

12oz can. Pours a semi hazy vibrant orange with an inch of frothy head. Lots of lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, dank hops, and malts. The taste is grapefruit, pine and dank hops. Some bready malts as well. Finishes with a fair amount of piney hops and grapefruit. Medium bodied and a bit on the dry side. Minimal alcohol presence and pretty drinkable. Overall, pretty good IPA.

Poured from a 12oz can into glassware

A> Pours a clear orange-gold with a fat 3 finger head that does a decent job at sticking around and clinging to the sides. Gorgeous looking beer.

S> Grapefruit, peaches, a little bit of bubble gum. Pretty aromatic, lots of sweet and bitter flavors are present.

T> Starts with a bit of pine and citrus bitter that quickly mellows out into tropical and peachy hop flavors. As the hops mellow the sweetness from the malt creeps in. The malt comes through with a bit of candy-like sweetness. Finishes quite sweet from the malt with a bit of the hops to bring everything back down to earth.

M> Pretty thick but could stand a little more carbonation, the finish is pretty wet.

O> A pretty solid IPA weighing in at nearly 7% that features some nice tropical & peach hop flavors but is just a little too sweet for my taste.
