2.82/5  rDev -26.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

From 12oz bottle into IPA glass.
Appearance is somewhat cloudy orange/gold. Half a finger head with light lacing.
Aroma is piney and dank with a hint of citrus.
Slightly oily mouthfeel with high level of carbonation.
Tastes like it smells. Mostly earthy pine with an orange finish. Not much malt flavor for balance. Just a hop bomb.
Overall, just ok. Wouldn't buy again but wouldn't turn down a free one.

3.88/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a short lasting white head atop a cloudy orange body, with some initial lacing. Nose is pine and a bit of spice and sourness alongside bread and biscuit malt notes.

Heavy pine flavors in the sip are blunted by answering sweet malt, which tempers the bitterness but leaves plenty of flavor. Mouthfeel is tight initially but opens up a little in the finish. Burly in flavor as well as abv. Nothing amazing, but enough flavor to interest most hop heads.

3.36/5  rDev -12%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: dark orange in color with a short head but some nice lace paints the glass.

Smell: barely anything can be detected by the nose here.

Taste: caramel, orange, and some floral hops are the main flavors.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp throughout. Short lasting aftertaste.

Overall: a so-so IPA. One was enough for my session.

On tap at the BNA Party last week.Slightly hazy deep golden color. Earthy spicy resinous pine with a faint bready malty backbone. Lightly sweet, decent IPA
