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.
