No freshness date, poured into a pint

A- pours a clear golden-orange color with a small foamy and creamy white head that retains nicely

S- nice mix of citrusy orange peel and piney hops with some leafy and minty aromas. Sweet candy-like malt aroma with some bready notes to close it out

T- citrusy hops follow the aroma with flavors of orange peel and grapefruit juice, leafy and grassy notes, candy-like sweetness with some sweet toasted bread malt. The finish gives some piney notes with a nice bitter linger

M- medium body with medium prickly carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and finish

O- very good IPA that showcases some nice citrusy notes, well balanced malt allows the hops to shine

The can pours out a dirty orange but bright sort of brew, which settles with opacity in the glass. It raises up a bubbly off-white head that doesn't quite make it to one finger but holds up and drops thin patching.
The nose is quite aromatic with hops, big and biting with pine resin and sharp grapefruit, with pithy orange rind note, spicy herb, and grass. The balance from the malts is very dry; it would be a little more well-rounded with a hint more sweetness, but it works pretty well and shows off the hops.
There is a certain sweetness from yeast and malt that shows in the flavor, mostly via some red apple and a little tropical fruit-like note. The spicy herb is there, with lots of citrus and resinous pine as the nose displays. Malts show more biscuit and malt here to even things out.
This beer is semi-dry in the feel from front to back. It's crisp and has some smoothness until the grains build up in the back of the throat. There's a note to it that's biting, and it's not crispness. Something just goes a little too sharp. It's pretty good overall, though, and a good beer in a tough style these days.
