Canned date of 12/19/16

Appearance - Pours clear and golden orange in color with an off-white. finger width head. Fair retention, resulting in a thin, broken layer of suds and a ring around the edge of the glass. Not much for lacing aside from a few random spots.

Smell - Equal balance of hop and malt on the nose, comprising orange, toasted bread, caramel, floral notes, pine and a bit of spice.

Taste - Citrusy, spicy and floral upfront, then a big punch of toasted bread and lesser caramel pushes forward to deliver a mostly balanced finish. Aftertaste lingers with spice, hints of caramel sweetness and pith bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Slick, easy drinker with a semi-dry finish.

Overall - Not the punchiest IPA out there, but I really dig the balance and flavor profile that this delivers. If it had just a bit more hop bite, it'd be killer.

Great tasting IPA. Smooth and relaxing. I recommend this beer for most IPA drinkers. If you like a nice tasting, not too bitter beer give it a try. Nice color, nice smell, good taste but it's a little murky.

Got this from my friend @csp0380.
A - Pours a clear golden orange with 1 finger of head.
S - Aroma is mango, grapefruit and piney.
T - Mango is the flavor on the front end. The bitterness at the finish is a lot of grapefruit zest.
M - Medium mouth feel and carbonation.
O - A good, solid IPA.

If you love Fresh Squeezed IPA from Deschutes Brewery then you will love this one too. A bit lighter in color (I prefer lighter colored IPAs - reminds me of the Pliny malts) and a little creamier than Fresh Squeezed. A really easy drinking IPA. A must try if you love Mosaic hops. I got this in a can - poured great - not missing the bottle at all.

Pours a finger of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is danky citrus.
The taste is clean with a quick bitter followed by a honey sweet and some spice. Nice.
The texture is crisp.
Enjoyable.

On tap at Brewhouse Gallery. Served in a pint glass. Hazy pale orange. Nice white head. Lightly tropical. Some lemon. Popcorn malt. Tastes less of hops, but still has a melon flavor. Cracker and doughy sweet malt. Grapefruit bitterness. Medium body. Solid IPA that maybe isn’t bursting with hop flavor.
