12 oz. can:

Pours hazed orange amber with a thin creamy head that leaves lacing.

The smell is citric/tropical (orange, some pineapple), herbal with a touch of caramel.

Oddly, the taste doesn't match the nose. Some orange peeks through, but it is overwhelmed by aspirin. A subtle hint of caramel comes through. Bitter finish.

I love hop-forward beers, but this is a bit chalky, and the hops are aromatic and bittering, but not juicy. It's drinkable, but there are so many better examples of the style.

Amber appearance, full on inch of head, white. Aroma wasn't hoppy enough. Some there, not enough, maybe zero dry hopping even.

Taste, another bomber ipa that just drops bitterness and not a lot of flavor. Too much caramalt. Really average ipa, at an expensive format.

Dark honey in appearance, the head laces well but fades extremely quickly. The smell is where it's at with one. The hops explode out of the top of the glass and the aroma is wonderful. Taste is better than average, but not quite among the elite, there is something slightly off balance with the bite although it does end with a nice bit of sweetness. Mouth feel is a little thin to me for some reason, but overall I think this one is growing on me.

A reddish copper pour, light tan head with decent retention. Aromas of pineapple, mandarin orange, and light honey. Flavors of pineapple and grapefruit with bitterness just barely taking the lead over the malt, and then a little sweetness comes through. Mouthfeel is a bit think initially, but improves. Aftertaste of lightly bitter citrus rind. An IPA that's simple and easy-drinking, but has just enough flavor to keep my interest for a pint.

Served On-Tap

A — Pours with a clear and clean light amber color, there is a light white colored head that forms and leaves behind some fair lacing.

S — Smell is oddly malt forward and sweet, though there is a nice light hop bitterness to round things out.

T — Taste is more hoppy than the nose would have suggested, lightly piney, bitter, lemony, with just enough of a sweet malt backbone.

M — Light-Medium bodied, crisp, lingering finish.

O — Good overall, kind of like a light NW IPA

Mediocre. A bit disappointing given the nose. Not my favorite use of C-hops.
