Thought I had reviewed this one already having had a few in the past, but turns out I haven't so here it goes.

L - 12 oz bottle poured into pint glass pours a slightly hazy, golden orange color with a finger or two of off-white head that dissipates a little slower and leaves about an inch of lacing on the glass. Very bubbly and consistent.

S - Grapefruit, honey, orange blossom, fresh-cut grass, dank, earthy, piney hops, and a strong floral presence but mostly citrus-heavy on the nose.

T - A nice balance of bitter and sweet throughout the sip. Orange, tangerine, rapefruit, lemon, and peach up front with bitter, astringent alcohol notes to follow, some spice, slight biscuity malt with a dry hoppy finish.

F - Light-to-medium bodied with good carbonation. The carbonation is present but not overpowering. Drinks fairly easy for having a 7% ABV. Very smooth, not-so-sticky, and finishes dry.

O - A nice, complex IPA that drinks almost like a lighter beer. A good balance of fruity and hoppy notes and a strong alcohol presence. Up there with some of the better IPAs I've drank and a good representation of the style. Good for the hop-heads and good for those who like a more citrusy beer as well.

No aroma. 3 months old so maybe it had a little more a few months back.

Got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 12 ounce can into tulip glass, best before 3/20/2018. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy deep golden amber/light orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, citrus peel/rind, pepper, pine, toasted biscuit, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, citrus peel/rind, pepper, pine, toasted biscuit, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, citrus peel/rind, pepper, pine, toasted biscuit, light caramel, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome 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 bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy/sticky, and fairly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 7%. Overall this is an awesome IPA! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly bitter/resinous/drying finish, never aggressive. Old school IPA, classic C and Amarillo hops. Great mix of juicy, dank, and earthy hop complexity; nice bready Vienna malt backbone, with minimal residual sweetness. A really enjoyable offering, loved the hop profile.

I'm initially impressed with this beer.
Smells grassy, poured golden and the head was smooth, and quickly retreated to a soft foam. The taste is what gets me, it's a simple and beautiful IPA. Very wheatie and moderately hoppy, it's an easy drink. I could be fooled that this is 7% abv, as my senses tell me this is a lighter beer. This is an awesome choice for all drinkers! I think that sums it up; it's a really good IPA!
