A: Pours a light amber color with two fingers of off white head.
Retention is above average and the lacing is sticky and ample.

S: Pepper. Lemon. Toasted malts. Light citric smell.

T/M: Smooth. Malty. Nice pepper and pine taste. Light citric hop
presence. Malts seem to stand out a little more. The aftertaste is
on the bitter side but mostly clean. Basic light IPA taste.

O: Pretty much a session IPA. Light on hop taste. I've had better
session IPA's before. Still it's crisp and goes down easy.

Cheers!

I almost passed on this one due to the can "graphics""/name, glad I didn't, great taste. This is a very solid choice.

Had many times at the brewery into a pint glass. Poured a clear amber color, small head barely sticks around. Balanced aroma of sweet and caramel malts with some good herbal hop notes, little bit of pine. Aroma overstated the hoppiness of this one. It's mostly malt (tastes like extract that's a touch oxidized) with a bitter finish and a quick taste of leafy hops. Notes of fruit due to the malt sweetness. Feel is heavier than expected, overall not a great beer.

Falls under the category of very nice place with moderate to mediocre beer.

They are new so I will give them the benefit of the doubt.

Golden straw, foamy head, aroma has sweet malts in the forefront. Citrus is the only hop characteristic I smell.

Smooth and crisp, would be an easy drinker. Nothing major off, but nothing bringing me back form more.

On tap at a wedding surprisingly. Pours a translucent light Amber color and very little head. Some lacing. Light citrus hop notes with some toasted malts. The taste is citrus and slightly dank. A bit onion and garlic too. Good amount of bitterness. Finished with the dank hops. Very little alcohol presence. Light mouthfeel. Crisp. Overall, pretty decent IPA.
