Picked up a single at the Quick Stop on 10-1-16 for $1.50. Canned on 5-3-16 but suspect it has been refrigerated the whole time.

Beer poured golden orange with a nice white head on the initial pour.

Nose was subdued citrus.

Taste was a subdued but nice blend containing citrus with a touch of peach over a lighter primarily pale malt body.

Mouthfeel was light to medium and pretty refreshing.

Overall this was a nice nearly sessionable IPA that i would not hesitate to have again.

Golden with lots of white head. Smells of lemons and orange. The taste basically follows the smell. More lemon than orange, perhaps a bit of mandarin in there as well and a hint of cracker in the malts. The taste is fairly typical for an IPA but a little on the weak side. Overall, decent but nothing special.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass.

L: Pours a hazy golden color, with a solid 2-finger head that dissipated to moderate lacing.

S: Solid aroma with pine and citrus hints.

T: Fairly well balanced with pine and citrus to match the aroma, and a little malt presence. Not overly bitter.

F: A little dry and thin. Notice the hops in the finish, but not overpowering.

O: Decent IPA. Wouldn't be my first choice, but it gets the job done, and is very portable in the 12 oz. cans.
