16oz can. Pours a golden brown color with 2 inches of frothy head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is dank hops, pine, grapefruit and orange. The taste is much like the aroma. Pine, grapefruit, orange peel and some dank hops. Bread crusts, pine and orange peel finish. Creamy with an oily mouthfeel.

Tastes like the floor of a horse stable. This beer underwhelmed in every way, as did their Stay Down dry hopped session lager. at $14 a 4pk its pure robbery. The second i get to work tomorrow I'm putting both in the discount bin. Sub-par beer at a premium price.. that's not how it works. Back to the drawing board Carton. Never again.

L: Clear copper with a creamy white head. Long retention, and sheets of lacing.

S: Caramel, toast, pine, weed, green vegetables, orange peel, grapefruit pith.

T: Yellow grapefruit, pith, orange zest, brown bread, toffee, woody/tree bark notes, pine needles, skunky weed. Malty-sweet upfront and in the middle, and then an intense lingering bitterness.

F: Medium-plus, well-carbonated, creamy and well-rounded, lightly dry with a sticky resinous finish.

O: A perfect old-school dank IPA.

a tasty beer here, i have not had nearly enough from these guys considering how much beer it looks like they put out. this is somewhat classically fashioned in that its hop profile also contains some bitterness, and that it has some maltiness to it as well, perhaps more balanced overall than we have let the style become. i like it being only 7% abv too, yet hopped liked a double, it drinks sort of halfway in between, and thats a sweet spot for me. hazy and pale from the tap with just a little deeper color to it than many have, a tall white head on top, looks nice from the tap, but it falls a little flat after a few minutes. the aroma and flavor show a sturdy dry hop, but somewhat of a more northwestern complexion, pine and bitter grapefruit zest, more intense in nose than flavor, where it takes on a bit more of a balanced profile. juniper and citrus zest, it flashes like a gin drink for a second, before the crackery lightly toasty malts come in. good lingering bitterness at the end and an oily slick sort of feel, built up in body by the malts nicely. overall tasty stuff with a bold hop flavor, weed-like sticky fruitiness, and pint glass drinkability. solid offering from these guys.

on tap at griffon gastropub. lacy. yes there were hops, yes its the style, but it simply tastes rather plain. Pales in comparisons to all the other good hoppy beers around.
