CAN:

Orange pulp. Bitter orange. 2-row. Pale malt. Floral hop notes. Marmalade.

Hop profile is nothing special or unique, nor is it particularly effective. It's a balanced beer but it plays it so safe and close to center that there isn't much to balance. More depth of hop flavour would be needed for this to be a memorable IPA.

There are so damn many IPAs out there right now, and many are excellent. You've really got to bring a terrific hop profile in terms of flavour, diversity, and balance in order to stand out...this fails to be anything but forgettable.

C / AVERAGE

03/01/19 CAN:

Hum-ho hop profile. Floral, bits of mango flirtation, caramalt, 2-row. Meh.

Appearance:
Light copper, hazy. Medium rising bubbles. Thick rocky head. Very good head retention. Leaves a very nice lacing behind.

Aroma:
Citrusy, orange, tangerine, pineapple, sweet bread, some caramel.

Taste/Finish/Body:
Hop bitterness is moderate, citrus, bitter orange, floral, slight onion. Solid malt backbone, semi-sweet bread, some toast and caramel. Sharp finish, semi-dry, lingers fairly long. Medium bodied, fairly sticky, smooth, soft carbonation.

Overall:
It's a very good American IPA.
