3 month can poured to YETI.
L: Copper color, good creamy head.
S: Earthy, piney, lightly fruity. Picked up a little tropical vibe but it wasn't consistent.
T: Uniquely flavorful, great mix of hoppy bitterness, rich malt, ripened earthy fruit, with a touch of pine.
O: Very good IPA.

Best of the bunch for these guys beers. Low bitterness and pretty smooth for an Ipa frankly but decent hop bite. The oddest think though was that this beer straight up smelled like the dank. I put my nose in and took and sip and started looking around. Smelled again and yep.... it's the beer. Weirdest damn thing.

L-Darker beer with a solid single finger head. The head hugs the side of the glass.
S-Piney hops, mellow citrusy hops, sweet and grassy rooted scent alcohol booze follows.
T-Bitter and mellow. Malty, pleasant and sweet.
F-Crisp and fresh. Goes well with the flavor.
O-Very tasty and refreshing beer. Better than a lot, not the best though. Nothing bad at all. Solid brew from a solid brewery.

Drinking locally at WOB in Birmingham in October 2016 while on business trip.

One of the most interesting IPAs I've ever had.... Such a balance of hops and malt. Has a real earthy, grainy taste. Not bitter. Packs a very surprising 7.5% ABV given it seems light and almost lager like.

Will drink again.

A: 1 finger head, hazy golden amber
S: nice resinous bite with touches of sweetness and pine, some citrus in there too but not too much, pine is up front, seems a touch mentholated, not minty mind you, just barely stinging the nose a bit
T: amber malts come through, bitterness is mild but present, not overwhelming, a touch of sweetness and base malt, pleasant
m: I honestly wish it was stickier
O: solid and enjoyable, more on the east coast end so on that note good because in some respects those always seem to be in shorter supply than they should be given the proliferation of the west coast style, good not great
