look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A - Golden beer with a bit of a white hue. A finger of white foam that faded to a meandering ring and partial cap.

S - Sweet, a bit too much for my preference, but there is some nice citrus and oily hop resins. Bit of a graham cracker malt backbone with a touch of caramel.

T - As some others have said, this is not nearly as much like a west coast IPA as one would expect it to be. Quite sweet, with some sugary malts and a touch of caramel. Some pine bitterness on the end, hopping flavor is primarily citus.

M - Medium bodied, a little oily, moderate carbonation.

O - Solid beer, but was hoping for something more west coast. Good, but wouldn't seek it out.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance-
Copper yellow, not the kind of fiery orange I like to see in this category.

Smell-
Hops are bitter and floral, with a surprisingly spicy malt.

Taste-
Follows smell, the malt is more present than before.

Mouthfeel-
Best part about it, one of those beers that demands attention and refreshes, but doesn't linger longer than necessary.

Overall-
An interesting joint venture, but I would not seek it out again.

Poured from tap into a pint glass. Pours a medium orange color with not that much of a head.

Nice aromas of florals, orange, peels, some hops and some sweet citrus. Balanced, but lacking real depth.

Medium/full bodied with a very nice and smooth feel. The flavors of hops, florals and a lot of citrus are a bit muted and don't really pop with that much depth either.

A refreshing IPA, but not much more than that. Easy drinking, but this isn't one of their best IPAs that they've released in my opinion.

22oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a glowing golden with a slight haze; small white head that leaves nice retention and decent lacing. The aromas are full of caramel malts. Lots of bread. Also lots of orange and grapefruit. The flavors seem to match. I really pick up alot of caramel in this beer. Lots of pine in the flavors as well. More grapefruit. Tons of orange and tangerines. Lots of bread. The orange notes seem to shine the most. Very subtle resin notes in the finish. It's juicy and dry at the same time. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and thin with active carbonation. It's pretty smooth.

This is well crafted, but pretty middle of the road for me. Not bad, but nothing to rave about, in my opinion.

Pours a slightly hazy dark golden orange color with apricot edges and visible carb bubbling up. Two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Sporadic streaks of soapy lacing left behind.

Earthy floral hop aroma with subtle dank resins and tropical fruit notes countered by pale malt sweetness. Some grassy pine needle followed by strong melon and pineapple sweetness. Underneath, there's some bread, biscuit, cracker and subtle light fruit.

Lighter end of medium body with a blast of dank, sticky bitterness that lingers over the sweeter hop notes and pale malts into a bone dry finish. Dank resins with crisp, dry bitterness that lingers throughout. Sticky pine needle and spruce tip followed by prominent melon sweetness and subtle tropical fruit. Morale malt backbone than expected with bread, biscuit and cracker. Well balanced and easy to drink with decent hop flavors.

22oz bomber poured into a teku.

A: a lighter shade of gold

S: sweet dank pine and hops; bread; musty orange peel

T: "taste follows the nose," but pulls its punch quite a bit; since nose was so reminiscent of enjoy by, i was expecting stronger flavors (missed the abv reading on the bottle); so crestfallen; still, some nice musty orange flavor and maltiness

M: really nice stickiness; full-bodied, creamy and chewy

O: good stuff, but still a middleweight contender in a heavyweight division.
