First had in Durham, North Carolina, on draft into tumbler. Commendable for appearance and aroma, but falling short in taste, I actually sent this back, wondering if it was an old keg. Now looking at other reviews, I remain unsure.

Bitter aftertaste. Cloudy appearance! Good lacing on glass.

A: The beer is very hazy yellowish amber in color—too hazy to see if there is any visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that has good retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of caramel malts are present in the nose along with hints of tropical fruit hops.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of caramel malts, although the hops are a little stronger and contribute notes of tropical fruits and a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a malt-forward IPA, but the tropical fruit hops make this a little interesting and don't taste like an IPA from the early 2000s.

12oz can, sample from the brewery.

The hop character this beer wields is pretty crazy, very aromatic with piney, citric, and tobacco. The palate is a mouthful of grapefruit rind with a evergreen undertone. Just enough malt to keep it balanced. Slightly warming but still very quaffable.

A very well put together IPA.
