Thanks to Lukahn (Reddit) for this, my first from this brewery.

Nice fluffy 1+ finger head that doesn't want to fade, but leaves a bit of lacing as it slowly does, over semi hazy slightly darker nectar orange colored beer.

Nose has some lighter hops, a bit of pine, hint resin, light citrus, more candy like hops again that bring a bit of candied orange zest, a light sweet caramel malt and candy like base, and most likely some bittering hops.

Taste continues, with some earthy hops, little pine and citrus, decent bitterness, again a light candy hop flavor with more candied orange, and a little rind. Light fruits under that, with a bit of chewy candy malt base, little caramel and slight sweet malt to balance the hops. Juicy but light overall, big malty base. Finish is still a bit sweet, bit more bitterness, little fruity and citrus hop, more candy hops and malt flavors lingering.

Mouth is med bodied, little fluffy, good carb.

Overall not bad. Not sure why it has such a low rating. Not the best hops but decent, lighter on the bitterness but still overall pretty tasty, clean, etc. Little too sweet as well but still decent.

Tastes very wheaty... Not in a good way. Doesnt wow me with complexity. Has a lingering bitterness that is never remedied. And an abv that isn't attempted to be masked. Def would avoid this beer unless only other options were light.

Smells like swamp water, very easy IPA to drink, tastes alright but won't knock your socks off. Would only get again if there were no other solid options.
