Poured on tap into a plastic airport cup. Hazy golden orange with thin Lacing & head. Sharp hop taste right off the bat with a ton of citrus. Not enuf malt to make it perfectly balanced and a slightly astringent chemical flavor somewhere in the mix. Long bitter finish.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 7/18/2016. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel/nuttiness, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel/nuttiness, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, lemon/orange rind, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and fairly creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Minimal warming alcohol for 7.2%. Overall this is an excellent IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink, despite the aggressive bitterness. A very enjoyable offering.

A great IPA. Lacking only in hops and complexity.

Canned on 7/18/2016. Poured into IPA glass. It pours a hazy, honey-amber color with two fingers of foamy, milk-white head and thick lacing with excellent retention. The smell is quite malty and grassy with whiffs of orange, melon, grapefruit, and subtle but fragrant herbs. It also features pine needles and resinous hops. The initial taste is sweet malt but then there is a jolt of dank, bitter pine and hops. There's also a touch of sweet fruit at the finish. It's a great balance of malt and bitter hops. This ale is medium-bodied with a touch of creaminess, moderately carbonated, and the 7.2% ABV gives it a nice punch without being overly boozy. Overall, this is a well-crafted IPA that deftly balances West Coast hoppy, and Southern malty, styles. It's a winner!
