3.72/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Yellowed white head and a clear orange body. Leaves some lacing and good head retention.

Orange, caramel, floral, and pine aroma.

Bigger pine on the flavor. Lots of caramel malt and orange hop.

Fairly smooth medium bodied. Fairly bitter from those 72 ibu's. Finishes a little dry.

Malty, Fruity, Jammy, Bready

Can with a 360 degree top, but we dropped it into a glass to take a look at its bright amber color and creamy lacing. Nose is malty, fruity, and jammy. Incredibly smooth and creamy, medium-bodied, and a bit slick. Firm malty backbone, fruity orange marmalade, and caramel. Quite sweet too. Hops? Hello? Surprisingly low perceived hop bitterness due to the malt dominance. Sure, there’s some hop flavor, but this is a malt bomb.

Draft. Deep Amber color with creamy head. Thick mouthfeel for an IPA, lots of bready malt with just enough hops to back it up. Something odd (funky) on the aftertaste. Still, tasty and easy to drink despite the high ABV.

Pours bronze with slight effervescence & 2+ fingers of pearl white head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Grassy, a little pine, some breadyness

T: Pine, much breadyness, a little grapefruit & some pear up front. Bready sweetness, pine & a little grapefruit as this warms, some dryness too. Finishes with a little grapefruit, some pine, dryness, some pear & breadyness, plus a little herbal hop bitterness

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation, pretty good balance

Very malt forward, a good IPA, not completely in my wheelhouse hop-wise, but well worth a try

Big hop taste, but lacks aroma qualities. Overall, a good example of its style, but defiantly not the best. The brewery is cool, and a good place to catch a cowboys game - indoor and outdoor seating, with a great view of the brewery operation. They have around nine of their brews on tap.

Guessing a bit on looks due to drinking directly from can. Love the smell, Fragrant and floral. Taste is right there with the smell. This is my kind of IPA. The finish is a bit off, but I will be back for more. Hard to believe how high the ABV is on this one.
