This IPA just isn’t my type. The flavor upfront was not what I expected. Tasted more like an ale and it finished off not particularly well either for me.

12oz can (best by 10/29/2018) into a tulip. Pours a glowing orange with a big sudsy bright white head, nice patchy lace.

Aroma is a burst of tropical citrus--grapefruit and tangerine. Touch of malty sweetness underneath.

Taste if juicy and acidic. Grapefruit rind, alpha acids, pale sweet malt.

Mouthfeel is balanced and a touch chewy, medium bodied.

Overall a solid, straightforward IPA.

12 oz. Can
BB: OCT 15 2018
ABV: 6.5%

Poured into a tulip a nice hazy dark golden orange color, with some nice carbonation, with a nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which also leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit), piney. The taste is hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit), piney. Medium body, ABV is hidden nicely, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty brew.

12 oz bottle- Pours hazy orange with a large white head that reduces leaving a thin blanket and nice foamy lace. Aroma is citrusy, sweetarts, orange rind. The taste is earthy hops up front, citrusy hops, orange and grapefruit, malt. The earthiness wanes after awhile, but is still noticeable, distracting. Not bad, but have had much better in the citrusy IPA category.

I was expecting more of a Citra presence, but this came off as more of a pale ale. Light citrusy aroma and taste, but not enough bitterness to be in IPA territory. A good beer, but not a great IPA.

Another typical West Coast IPA. Nothing to write home about but definitely an enjoyable beer. Fruity hop profile but also naturally citrusy bc of the grapefruit peel. Malty yet fruity finish and smooth feel. Enjoyed a six pack with my Jordy!
