Had on tap. Pours clear, gold in color, with 1/3 inch head. Taste is lemon, orange, and pine that gets stronger as the beer warms. Slightly bitter, delicate, and light bodied. This beer does not knock you over the head with hops as much as some other beers. It is a pleasant sipper that has me curious about the brewery.

Can from Dale. Amber pour with small airy head. Caramel malts first on aroma. Not overly hopped, but not juicy east coast either. A bit of a metallic tinge on the finish. Solid IPA.

Pours a clear crisp orange. Thick frothy white head dissipates steadily leaving little lacing and just some spotty foam on top of the beer.

Smell has aromas of orange, orange rind, grapefruit, grapefruit rind, grass, and sappy pine. Nice vibrant aroma is readily discernable and deep but the dominant aroma is orange. I get almost a soapy aroma that is odd, but I suspect that is just me.

Taste is more muted than the aroma would lead you to expect. Notes of orange, orange rind and grass are the dominant flavors with a bitter piney finish. Simple and straightforward with a nice balance between the hops and the malts.

Feel is appropriate for the style. Medium carbonation. Easy drinking.

Overall this is a very good IPA from Solemn Oath. Nothing special, but very well executed.

Enjoyable mild IPA. I dismissed this brewery for a few years, but I like what I've tasted.

No mystery, but 80 IBU is too high for me to drink again.

12 fl oz. can, canned 06/30/16 printed near the bottom lip of the can. My first canned offering from Solemn Oath; acquired the six pack from the local beer store. Appealing can art with a blood red tooth and a bunch of punk rockers. Nothing says punk rock quite like your Naperville, Illinois craft beer *sarcasm*.

Poured into a Big Eddy snifter glass.

A - Pours a brightly hazy golden orange body, with just over a finger of fluffy airy white bubbly head that falls to a ring rather quickly, leaving some minor spotty lacing on the way down. A nice color, and it appears decently carbonated - looks good for the style.

S - Aroma of bright fresh piney hop oils, pine needles / resin, citrus, grapefruit, dankness. Juicy & tropical fruits - mandarin oranges, grapefruits, tangerines, pineapple, mango. Fresh, fruity, floral, & appealing.

T - Taste brings in more of the same: crisp juicy notes of citrus fruits & piney resinous hops. Perfectly balanced sweetened bready malt content keep the hops in check.

M - Feel is smooth, crisp, clean, juicy, piney, resinous, bitter, floral. Very light-bodied and easy drinking stuff, especially for the modest 6.50% abv. Very drinkable / "Sessionable" stuff. Glad i got the sixer.

Solemn Oath Snaggle Tooth Bandana -----4/5.
