Poured from the can a slightly hazed orange color with two fingers of rich white head. Loads of sticky lacing left behind. Very attractive.

Aroma of light orange citrus, earth, and caramel malts.

Bitter hoppy notes of orange peeland grass along with some caramel maltiness.

Medium bodied and sticky with a moderate carbonation.

A good-but-not -great IPA from Flat 12 Bierwerks.

Growler from The Filling Station East Nashville poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear copper, with a creamy off-white head. Pretty lacing.

S: Bits of citrus and pine, but nothing strong.

T: Hop forward and piney. The hop bite is short. Smooth finish that becomes dry but not bitter.

M: Medium feel. Carbonated just right.

O: A solid IPA that hints at more. More hop forward than expected, but those hops quickly give way to a smooth dryness. Very sessionable. Could pass for a DIPA for just a second, but then reveals itself as a just-fine IPA.
