Poured from a 16 ounce can into a Teku glass. Canned 7 September 2017.
4/3.5/4/4/3.75

Clear amber with creamy, churning finger of head.

Smells floral, earthy, and sweet. Hint of ripened fruit.

Tastes kinda weirdly fruity, but in a good way. The overall flavor is mineral, robust, and earthy, but there is an almost heavy, round maltiness and a *touch* of stewed strawberry and stonefruit. Aftertaste is "beery" -- reminiscent of a "copper ale" or the like.

This is almost a "double fresh hop" in a way. A serious IPA with hops that I'd prefer dried out or powdered. Still, a fun addition to the lineup.

Pours with a whit, heavy, and dense head. The color is deep amber almost caramel. The nose is very floral. Hops are in the air!!! The taste is a little bitter with a decent hop bite to it. Good beer.

Drinkable beer and one that i wouldn't turn down again in the future. Clear, amber color. Taste is very balanced for a 7% IPA. Expected more hops out of it considering all the hops caricatures on the label. I would say this is a good IPA for folks who don't particularly like IPAs. That may sound bad but, I promise, that's a good thing. Taste is more like a typical English ale.

An excellent beer with lots of pine and citrus. I love hoppy beers and thought this struck an excellent balance. Another well done beer by Hardywood.

Disappointed in this one. Expecting IPA, got a Pale Ale. If you are looking for a Pale Ale, this is decent. Definitely not an IPA
