Poured on tap in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, orange-tan coloring, with a filmy, clingy, white head. Aromas of heavy citrus, heavy herbal hops notes, and solid earthy highlights. Lots of orange mixing with the hemp, dried grass, and pine. Flavors are citrus forward, tart and sweet, with orange and lemon leading the charge. Grassy and herbal hops to follow, with pine, grass, hemp, and an herbal blend all present. Solid, fairly balanced palate, on a light, dry body. The aftertaste is all hops, herbal and grassy throughout, with a building bitterness. Light, dry finish with a slight resinous linger. Good beer.

Poured a golden body, possibly golden orange, with minimal head and lace. Aroma is not really overly hoppy or malty or anything as the hemp seeds (I believe this is the cause) give it a mostly grainy aroma. Beer is not terrible but this is not an IPA that I will go for again. Low amount of citric hops and any type of barley or caramel malts seem muted by the hemp (which had I not known was used, I would never have guessed that it was in beer). Basically, nothing really shines and the beer is overly dry, more grainy and even veg like (corn?) in its overall taste and finish than anything else.
