12 oz can, dated 9/4/20, into Elipsis glass. I misread the date on this.

Honey color with slight amber tinge, half finger of head, receding to a ring leaving slight spots of lace.

Smells like pine and caramel, slight cardboard/oxidation. Some citrus - orange, tangerine, orange marmalade.

Tastes like apricot , cardboard, and newspaper. Some smokiness. Ian says Chinook hops, I would agree 100%.

Feel is slightly resinous, slightly juicy, no alcohol heat, heavy carbonation, with very slight pleasant resins.

Overall, very good, but moderately upset that I mistook the "20" for a "21". Will maybe try fresher sometime. Total Wine wins again.

$2.29 / single @ Total Wine in Indianapolis

From a 3 month old 12 oz can into a glass in a hotel room outside of Louisville. Pours a fairly clear light orange amber, with a decent head. Lots of hops but they’re a little muddled...dominant notes are melon and round almost overripe citrus. Bready and caramel malts...not to heavy, but add quite a bit of body and lingering sweetness, where one might hope for a little more hoppy bitterness. Happy I had a chance to try it but wouldn’t go out of my way for it in the future.

Clear gold viewed from the top, viewed from the side the color shifts to brass. Low carbonation, which pairs nicely with the slight sweetness and smooth body of the beer. This IPA lacks the harsh punch of bitter flavor that some IPAs exhibit and instead balances the hop flavor with the flavor of the malt. The aftertaste is aromatic, not bitter or astringent, and makes the mouth water.

Poured into a tall clear pint glass. Appearance is golden and cloudy, more than a finger thick of creamy head with decent lacing and retention.

Aroma is tropical notes like pineapple, papaya, and mango, citrus notes like orange and tangerines, biscuit malt, and passion fruit.

Taste is piney and there is grapefruit present, other citrus and tropic notes are in the background. Body is medium-light.

Pours light amber. A light hop nose. Solid IPA, finishes fairly smooth rather than bitter or sharp.

The only Country Boy beer I enjoy. Serviceable IPA. Nothing special, but not bad at all. Watching people drink that toilet water Cougar Bait over this is baffling.

12 oz can at the Fall 2018 Suwannee Roots Revival.
Pours with a hazy amber body and a durable white head.
Smooth, full bodies and leaning slightly towards bold for style. The mix of hops is not exactly my cup of tea but does carry a touch of umami.

Pours a hazy orange color with only a slight head. The smell is pretty much equally hoppy and citrus. The initial taste is sweet, hoppy and not near as bad as I would expect from an IPA. The feel is that of a typical brew and not to thick. Overall I would actually drink more of these, but not as a first choice.

I got a six of this at a gas station near our hotel in Nashville whilst there for a hockey tournament. It poured a clear golden with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had hints of citrus peel. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with citrus peel and pine presence. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.
