I adored Roughtail's Everything Rhymes With Orange, so I had to give this a go. Runs $10.99 USD per sixer in the Austin, TX market.

"IPA." Canned 03/19/18. No hop varietals are mentioned on the label.

Very even-keeled, but the hop profile is a bit underwhelming. Hits on pretty basic citrus notes, evoking candied orange, mango, tangerine, and orange. Pale malts keep it balanced. Hop pungency is lacking for an IPA; this drinks more like a pale ale.

Alcohol is well hidden. Has a nice softness to its mouthfeel, which is a highlight. Smooth, wet, and well-carbonated.

Extremely drinkable, though that's owed in part to its lack of hop pungency and concomitant bitterness. Lacks the assertive hop profile one would look for in a great expression of an IPA. Still, it's very enjoyable fare from Roughtail, and while not quite anywhere near the level of Everything Rhymes With Orange, I'm glad I picked it up and I'll enjoy working my way through the sixer.

Good session beer. A little on the carbonated side but as Lawrence Welj would say, “tiny bubbles”.

16oz canned on 10-3-17
Appealing, clear, clean copper/gold with a 1" white head. Good retention and nice lacing.
Weedy and tropical nose, some pine. Caramel malts apparent. Candy.
Nicely balanced IPA, earthy hops rule but not out of control. Lemon oil.
Medium body, clean mouthfeel. Decent length in the bitter finish.
Very nice, more of a traditional IPA.
Clean, balanced, and flavorful.

Drank from a can. Decent carbonation and head that stuck around in the can. Nose of grapefruit and citrus hops with some semblance of malt, but it wasn't overwhelming or bitter. Taste follows nose with west coast IPA notes of grapefruit and citrus with some pine on the back end. Medium-light body and carbonation with no metallic aftertastes, indicating a decent can was used in canning.
It was better than the first time I had it 3 years ago. Good summer beer that isn't too heavy or complex - straight forward hops that don't make the beer overly bitter. Drinkable and just a little bitter.

Between a lager and an amber in color. White head. Tastes of grapefruit and citrus come through pretty strongly. Less intimidating and more drinkable than some IPAs.
