Pours a cloudy yellow straw color with visible carbonation. A generous frothy white head retains quite well, yielding sticky lacing and a thick creamy film throughout.
Fruit is predominant in the nose, mainly citrus, along with peach and pear. There is also a light grass, pine and floral aroma set against a background of cracker malt.
The taste features a dry crackery malt backbone set against a moderately bitter hops backdrop that evokes flavors of pine and grass. Furthermore, flavors of grapefruit pith and dry peach add a nice bit of juice. The palate is dry overall, as is the finish, which has a light peppery spice and clean bitterness to it.
The mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate carbonation. It has a nice crispness to it and is quite drinkable.
A nice “little” IPA which is quite sessionable and flavorful for the low ABV.

[Revised 8/2/2018] Poured into a small chalice: color is straw gold, a bit hazy, head is bright white with fine bubbles and head presents about at least 1 inch thick, head lingers well with plenty of depth and lacing.

Smell is big burst of eureka! hop aromas - light citrus rind, hint of pine and some herbal notes; malt is lightly bready.

Taste adds flavor as it warms with very light toast, biscuit, herbal hops, some more citrus like qualities, less pine/earthy notes than the aroma.

Mouthfeel is crisp, moderate carbonation, good lingering bitterness.

Overall this brew starts very subdued but the qualities enhance with warming with fairly clean malt with toast notes and herbal and light citric hops. On the second tasting the aroma was much more prominent and pleasant with the hops providing great presence and adding the the flavors depth.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, some pine. Taste is pine, malts, some orange peels, mild bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking and decent beer, but not as hop forward as I expected.

Dark yellow in color with an orangish hue and a murky, unfiltered appearance. Poured with a short, creamy, white foam with medium low retention. Medium light herbal and pine aromas with an underlying dankness and maltiness. Medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Fleeting creamy feel up front and light warmth toward the end. Medium malty flavor up front followed by herbal hop flavors that transition to pine. Medium hop bitterness through the middle followed by mellow dank hoppiness to the end. Finished semi dryly with light pine bitterness and bready malt flavors. Drank more like a pale ale than a IPA. Malt and hop characters were pretty evenly balanced. Aromas were a bit subdued and the feel was a bit thin for 6%. Solid malt flavors with tasty hop character. The lighy dankness makes this work. Tasty and easy drinking.

Undated can (I wish they'd date IPAs) into pint glass. Pours a hazy light amber with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Initial impression is citrus, mango, pineapple, a little pine, with bready and caramel malts to balance things nicely. Mouthfeel is medium, as is carbonation. Finish is dry and ever so slightly bitter, but certainly not dominating. Pretty good IPA!
