Reviewed from long-standing notes. Poured from a 32 oz. swing-top growler into a Cigar City snifter.

A: Lightly hazy gold, with 1 1/2 finger's worth of white head with good retention for a hoppy beer. Average visible carbonation.

S: Citrus rind, tropical fruits, and light cracker malt. Nothing exciting nor off-putting here.

T: Tropical fruits, melon, some dank and some orange zest. Light cracker malt body. Finishes with melon hops and dank bitterness.

M: Average weight to the body for an American IPA but still manages a crisp mouthfeel. The alcohol content is well-hidden. Good carbonation sensation, especially for a growler serving.

O: I thought this was good - the setup of the malt bill and letting the hops run the show. Likely not my personal preference in hop profile though. Unless you're a big IPA ticker, there's likely an IPA (or multiples) on the shelves near you that are equally as good, if not better. But I wouldn't hesitate to order another one if I saw it around on tap.

Very smooth IPA. Has almost a smoky quality to it. Definitely more piney than citrusy in the IPA books. Decent mouthfeel but could use a little more aroma, as well as carbonation to keep the palette interested.

Textbook IPA, possibly DIPA but I listed it as an IPA since "IPA" is in the name and the beer isn't in DIPA ABV territory.
Pours a clear, dark gold, almost orange body, two finger head that dies quick with lace patches.
A citrusy, piney aroma with some grapefruit smells.
Beer is medium bodied, smooth, loaded with citric hops but balanced with some grape like sweetness.
Classic IPA that you can just relax with anytime.
