A: pours a pale foggy gold body, a fluffy white two finger head builds and falls back slowly with medium retention into a halo, leaving a little lacing behind.
S: dank melon light citrus hop and a little lemon-squeezy brown sugar malt to back it up
T: follows the nose with lush melon, dank hop with a faint amount of earthy pine bitterness, orange peel and tangerine, sharing the stage elbow-to-elbow with sticky light brown sugar malts
F: mid-to-high level carbonation, medium body, with a sticky bittersweet finish that only lightly coats the cheeks and tongue for a short period.

Bottom line:
a great shade of the ole "dank hop" IPA genre, focusing on melon. smooth, juicy, dank, slightly earthy, little sweet; it's near lemonade, or Arnold Palmer even, sans the sour tart that comes with lemon...maybe a stretch but whatever. point is, it's good. would 10 out of 10 do a again. looking forward to the other 5 waiting in the fridge

12oz canned in early August.

A: Beautiful clear straw-gold.

S: Balanced and somewhat subdued nose of malt with hints of hoppy pine and stone fruit.

T: Faint bitterness, pineapple, crackery, bready malt.

MF: Refreshing and smooth and easy dirnking.

O: Says its brewed to be an everyday IPA - I get that, just would like some more hop flavors out of this one. This is pretty much a Pale Ale, I would say.

12 oz. can from Lifesource Natural Grocers in Salem OR.
This is the new flagship IPA for the brewer..non organic as far as i can tell.
Pours a regulation burnt orange colour for the body..larger frothy/rocky off white head.
Aromas are of orange peel, strawberry, peach pit and dank..a wee bit
Taste is similar to the aroma..fruity but not ultra..bit of olde PNW dank in the back.
Mouth feel is medium full with medium to low carbonation OK.
A normal IPA..slightly boring.

Poured a golden yellow, a bit hazy with a real nice head and sticky lace.

Fruity aromas and flavors, a really nice choice of hops.

Great feel, low bitterness and nice sweet, fruity aftertaste.

A real hit, excellent worthy of being the flagship beer.
