12 Oz can poured into glass
Look - somewhat light for an IPA. gold yellow color with a medium foam head and lots of glass lacing
Smell - Some canned pineapple. Grass. Sweet and tropical for the most part.
Taste - Overripe tropical fruits. Sugar cubes. A dank herbal quality. A little alcohol. It's certainly not a run of the mill IPA, it stands out. It has medium body and medium-low carbonation.

Overall, i like this beer quite a bit. It's not too bitter and it has the tropical fruit flavors that i like in IPA. It also has an herb flavor that is almost like oregano, but i think it works well. Grade is a B+

A: Pours a golden orange color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves good lacing

S: A good mix of citrus, pine, and floral hops along with some caramel and malty undertones

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the citrus and floral hop notes and then picks up the malt and a light sweetness. Finishes with lingering citrus and floral notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A little watery

O: A nicely drinkable IPA that has some good flavors. Nothing special though

From old, undated notes. Poured from the bottle.

Very light orange color.

Very filtered; easy to see through, especially when held to the light.

Frothy head & lacing.

Fruity, hop forward nose.

Slightly thin mouthfeel; very quaffable.

Subtle hop flavor on this guy, slight bite on the back end. Orange citrus is the main flavor. A little watery, truth be told, but this would be an IPA to turn to on a super hot day.

Decent, with a great nose.
