I'm trying this at the brewery. It poured a slightly hazy orangish with white head that is not leaving much lace. The scent had citrus peel notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with subtle tropical fruit peel flavor through the drink. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer.

Good looking amber orange with an abundance of head and lacing that holds a long time. Great smell of citrus, pine and wildflowers. I was hoping for a more west coast style taste. I didn’t get that but what I did get was a mouthful of hops, dry and bitter. You can feel the dry hops on your tongue, if you like that, and it’s potent. Overall I was a little let down but this is a solid IPA if you like it hoppy and dry so I rated it for that category of drinker.

12 oz can canned sometime (partially illegible) in 2017.

Lightly hazed amber colored body topped by a huge, very foamy white head. Very good retention with a thick foamy film of lacing left on the glass.

Aroma: complex; moderate strength; floral with hints of tropical fruits including oranges, and some pine.

Flavor: largely follows the aroma. Some pine and grapefruit in the finish. Moderately bitter for style but leans towards bold for style overall.

Feel: medium+ body; medium+ carbonation.

Overall: a high quality West Coast IPA.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly cloudy pale orange color with a small white head. The aroma is tons of hops and fruit.

Way toooooo much carbonation. So much so that I could not enjoy any aspect of the beer's taste. Aftertaste was acceptable, but not by much. I'll pass on this IPA.

Pours a cloudy, gold color. 3/2 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of citrus hops, slight piney hops, slight sweet malt, slight caramel malt, slight tea, and resin. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a slight dryness. Tastes of citrus hops, slight piney hops, slight sweet malt, hint of alcohol, hint of tea, resin, and a hint of floral. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, and complexity.
