A bit soapy. Hop profile is disinteresting.

I had the 12 ounce can, poured in a shaker glass. It pours a copper/amber color, much darker than most of the IPAs I'm used to. There's a good head, but it doesn't stick around. The smell is surprisingly mild for an IPA. There's some hoppiness there, but not as much as I was expecting. The taste is a mixture of hops and caramel malts. Neither wins, and the combination doesn't work too well. It's plenty bitter, which is fine with me, but that's about all it has going for it.

Overall, this was a disappointment. It's pretty far off the mark from a lot of the IPAs I've had. I'm no style purist; I like unusual beers. But this one just seemed to fall short of the merits of a typical IPA, without offering much else in return.

12 oz. Can
Canned On: 092117

Pours a pretty nice clean/clear dark golden orangy color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, with some malt, with a nice little citrus note. The taste is hoppy, malty, with some citrus. Medium body, ABV hidden pretty nicely, with a dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty brew, a nice thirst quencher.

Thanks Drevis.
Subdued aroma for style with a doughy and earthy quality (that reminds me of citra, but according to the website it is not) to the hop aroma.
Quite light colored for style too with a pale gold and mostly clear. Smallish head settled down.
Immediate hop bit that very quickly moves to a prominent bitterness that lingers a good long time and really seems to dominate. Some of the bits of doughiness and some earthiness, and some fruitiness (a bit of citrus and some tartness). Complexity increases some with warming, but it doesn't seem in a hurry to get there.
Body is a bit thin and fully carbonated.
Pretty standard fare.

My kind of IPA right here. Reddish copper color, assertive hoppiness, very smooth. Loved it as my go-to post ski beer in Telluride.

Dark copper colored with a half inch of frothy beige foam on top. Heavy lacing. Aroma is an aggressive burst of citrus hops and biscuit light malt. The taste is sharply bitter citrus hops and light biscuit malt is apparent at the back of the palate. The mouth is dry and lightly sticky.
