Love the art work on the can but this beer is just okay and brewed for those who like a malty backbone in an IPA. 6 varietal hops? Doesn't mean much if the amount of each hop is a skimpy sprinkle.

As far as flavors there is some bitterness grassy malty caramel piney metallic taste but truly not as hoppy and delicious it should be with 6 hop varieties. Says enjoy by July, it's April, 90 day shelf life for IPA so I'd say it's quite fresh but has more of that IPA turning into a barley wine flavor.

In a can, best by date of 06.04.2018

Golden copper in color, darker than most IPAs. Nose is quite balanced, with a strong presence of sugary sweet toasted malt and a resinous and dank hop aroma. Flavor is similar; nice balance of malty sweetness and fruity hops. Smooth feel and body with a pleasant finish. This was pretty good and would definitely score better back in the day when the model IPA wasn’t OJ with hop dust and concentrate added.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, best before 7/10/2018. Pours crystal clear golden amber/light orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, citrus peel/zest, pepper, pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, citrus peel/zest, pepper, pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, mango, melon, citrus peel/zest, pepper, pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy/sticky, and slightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 7.3%. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mellowly bitter/drying finish, never aggressive. Old school IPA as expected. Classic C/Simcoe/Amarillo hops. Balanced juicy/dank hop complexity; nice bready Munich/Victory malt backbone, with mild residual sweetness. A very enjoyable offering and well made style example.

12oz can bb 6/18/18 poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass at fridge temp 7.3% ABV. The beer pours bright light honey in color with sticky off white head. The head recedes to a cap and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is semisweet caramel and a touch of hops. The taste is more semisweet caramel with a tea-like hop addition. There is caramel, then green tea, then a dry bitterness. Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied, adequately carbonated and very dry in the finish. Overall, good but dated. I've noticed this quality in other southern IPAs and I'm not a fan. Thin, super dry with the hops making a tea like presence. It's ok drinking and well made, just not my preference.
