12oz. can filled 06/10/16

Pours clear amber orange with a creamy frothy white foam head. Smells like red grapefruit, caramel, toffee, sweet cinnamon-esque spice, orange, blueberry, blackberry, raspberry, strawberry, melon, papaya, toasted graham crackery grain, with dank earthy grass and herbal resinous pine. Tastes like red grapefruit, mixed berries, caramel, dark toffee, orange citrus, melon, papaya, sweet spice, dark crackery malt, with bitter herbal resinous pine and dank earthy grass. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy with moderate low carbonation. Overall a real nice IPA.

3.38/5  rDev -17%
look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Look: Golden orange. A foamy off-white head that fades somewhat quickly and doesn't leave much lacing.

Smell: I was pretty underwhelmed by the strength of the aroma. What I picked up was good: citrus and bit of pine. It just wasn't very strong.

Taste: Sweet, fruity citrus right off the bat. Mostly orange and tangerine at the start. It finishes with a bitter grapefruit flavor.

Feel: Crisp and refreshing enough to drink more than one. Doesn't finish overly dry despite the slightly bitter finish in taste. Very moderate carbonation, and I'm glad because too much would hurt this beer a lot I think.

Overall: If the ABV was a little lower, this would be a great session beer. It's tasty if you want a beer full of citrus flavor and don't mind a slightly bitter finish.

Canned on 06/10/16 (3 weeks old); awesome artwork. Light clear amber color, no haze. Smells very very sweet, citrusy, piney and a little earthy. It's like caramelizing grapefruit or orange using honey, while camping in a pine forest. Also a hint of crackery malt. Taste follows the nose with a nice mildly bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel. Overall, a very well balanced beer; very good!

Reminds me of a lower ABV version of hopslam. It drinks pretty much the same way but without the alcohol burn at the end. Love it.

Medium amber color with 1/2" white head, diminishing to a thin coating. But, solid lacing all the way down the glass.

Smell of grass, dank, some pine and peach.

Good IPA taste with some overriding bitterness, slight sourness (little vinegar?).

MF was lighter than I expected (given color and flavor profile)...so refreshing for mid-summer.

Nothing special, but a good available IPA.
