-optitically clear amber pour from can (canned 23 days ago). Aroma is faintly hoppy. Crisp pine hop flavors with a pronounced malt-back. Finish is very dry. I like this beer.

Canned 20 Oct 2016. Not sure why, but this showed up in Oregon.

A mildly hazy light copper with a dense off white head with good retention and nice lacing, this looks solid. The nose is a blend of grassy and floral citrus hops, orange pith, floral honey, a little dough, and some pine. A distinct malt character, a blend of biscuit and cracker dough, is present. The palate opens bitter with a nice fruitiness, a blend of blood orange and grapefruit, Jasmine and rose like floral notes. The mid palate has dough, a light caramel and some biscuit. A little dull, in some ways. Drying, bitter and a little pith like on the finish, this beer is medium light in body and moderately carbonated. Solid stuff.

On draft into a pint glass. Clear golden yellow color with a decent head and lacing. Citrus smell, very pleasant. Piney and citrus, orange and tangerine. Nice bitterness.

Tangerine-led citrus punch up front, then a dry floral finish with a touch of grapefruit. It's got a bit of body to it, and compared to most midwest IPAs, this has more juice to the hops character. I'd bring a sixer to a party.

I have now had this beer twice and it was slightly different each time.
Both times it poured a bright amber with a glowing orange hue. Big foam head, retained well.
Citrusy, tropical fruit, resiny weed like hops and caramel malts in the nose.
The first time I had this it was sweet and juicy with a moderate hops presence. The second time, it felt drier and with a stronger piny hops presence. Both times it was citrusy and with a solid caramel malt backbone.
Medium to light bodied and smooth in the mouth. Easy to drink.
I'm happy to see this brewery came to NY. I really liked this brew.
