Pours a hazy golden amber in color with a finger of long-lasting off white head. Aroma and pine and citrus, more akin to cleaner than a hoppy beer but not wholly unpleasant; I also get some caramel malt in the background. Taste is oddly soapy but has piney hops and caramel malts in the background yet I don't get any sweetness. As I continue to drink I get earthy hops that become me more prominent. Decent mouthfeel light-medium body and low-ish carbonation. This is much more of an old school English IPA. I think I would have enjoyed this quite a bit a few years ago but in today's world of juice bitterness but beer bombs this just doesn't do it for me.

Appearance: apple-cider colored. thin level of foam that dissolved immediately.

Smell: VERY hoppy, with a hint of fruit

Taste: Again, very hoppy. Grapefruit flavor. Bitter, and it lingers.

Mouthfeel: Thick, like the right kind of woman.

Overall: Not a huge fan. I like the flavor, but the bitterness is overpowering and it definitely lingers on the tongue longer than I'd hoped for. It's good, for sure, but its not something I'd put atop my shopping list.

12 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours very haze deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness.Moderate pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, grapefruit, lemon/orange rind, pine, honey, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
