Freshie can... 1-3-19

Medium amber, slight haze, copious fine lacing.

Mild resin hopped up nose.

Tasty enough IPA, on the resiny side of the IPA spectrum. Well crafted, easy drinking but nothing overly special going on here.

Pours a cloudy amber color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, alcohol, strong citrus hops, floral hops, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable bitterness. Tastes of sweet malt, alcohol, strong citrus hops, floral hops, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, good appearance, blend, and body.

L: Cloudy hazy amber color, little head but lace all around the pour
S: Faint candy smell and touch of grain, almost cereal
F: Above average bitter, no real foaming
T: Touch of grapefruit at the end, more like a canned grapefruit juice, but there. Slightly syrupy sweet raisin taste. Peppery bitter fruit but controlled and clean.
O: This one's a keeper. It's the most I've ever spent on a six pack from a Shell gas station, but since I was in Kentucky, I thought to give it a try and it didn't disappoint.

Pours a bright golden-orange color. Completely clear with a thin white head that dissipates steadily leaving no residual head other than a ring of foam along the outside of the beer.

Aroma has notes of fruit - citrus, mango and grapefruit - quite juicy. Hints of pine also come through.

Taste has notes of orange, grapefruit, and pine - has kind of a soapy character to it, but its not overpowering. Strong bitterness starts midway through and lingers through the finish.

Feel is medium bodied, oily, and slick. Moderate carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

Overall a solid IPA - nothing about this stands out or is particularly memorable, but its a good tasting beer.

Purchased in cans on my trip to Kentucky. Beer pours a medium golden color with mild haze, mostly clear. Small head that retains lacing throughout the pint. Smell is of citrus and pine. Taste is up front clean bitterness- citrus peel and a hint of pine. Very little malt flavor is detected at first, but on the backend some light carmel and bready flavors emerge very slightly. Hop flavor is decent combination of grapefruit and some pine, and a touch of grassy. This has to be heavy on the Cascade hops - it has the taste of a high-powered Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. A small touch of juicy tropical hop (Citra?) is there in the background. Finish is decent, but could use a little more malt flavor to support the bitterness. I like this beer - it is not great. Solid American IPA entry, needs more malt and hop balance to elevate beyond “good”.

Classic American IPA with a big citrus punch that reminds me of Two Hearted, complemented by a hit of juicy Citra hops. Medium body and a balanced dry finish. Well made beer.
