Smells amazing. Easy drinking, citrus plus malt are balanced perfectly. Clean, crisp.

Clear deep golden color with off-white head. Aroma has candied orange peel, hop resin and slightly nutty malt notes. Taste is quite bitter and medicinal up-front. Some citrus rind at first but then you only get the leafy bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Quite unbalanced and flawed by some off-flavors.

A well priced and tasty brew, a little on the malty side. $15.99 for a twelve pack with a good drink by date. This and SN Hazy Little Thing are my favorite everyday brews.

Pours hazy orange, string notes of pine and floral off the nose. Followed up by slightly bitter and earthy tasting notes. Overall a smooth and easy drinker, a classic IPA and good introductory beer for the style for new consumers.
