look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

Pretty good IPA. Pours a clear golden color with a big frothy white head. Good head retention and thick lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus hops, not bad smell. Taste is moderately bitter with floral and citrus hops. There is some balancing biscuity malt. Mouthfeel is medium richness, crisp with some mild bitterness. There are better IPAs out there, but this one is fairly good.

12oz can poured into a tulip. The brew appears a clear copper color with yellowish stained cap a finger strong.

This smells citrusy and fruity/floral. Some rindy/pithy and grassy herbal hop notes mixed in with minimal alcohol and maltiness to be noted.

This tastes bitter and rindy with some herbs. A slightly cheesy appeal with pine-like hop resin and stale grain/grapefruit aftertaste.

This is medium bodied and modestly carbonated. Overall a decent IPA.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The aroma is a nice blend of pine, citrus, malt and yeasty bread. The color is a murky bright orange with a large white head. The flavor is big on hops and is very refreshing with a nice aftertaste bite. An excellent beer in my humble opinion.
