The color in an nice hazy orange, but the head evaporated fairly quickly. It's aroma is nice and citrusy with definite zest. The taste is nicely balanced with pleasant fruitiness and bitterness mixing well. The mouth feel is also appealing as it lingers long enough on the tongue, but not too long as to get uncomfortable.

12 oz can. 3-17-17 stamped on the bottom

Pours Amber with a ruby hue, minor khaki cap, leaving a thin film and some low sheeting

Mild fruit and resiny hops on the nose

Respectable IPA with moderate levels of hops and some orangy fruit notes...better then a lot of the other local IPAs I've been trying...which is not saying much, but it is saying something

The color is golden, the smell is full of hops, the taste was not as pleasing as the hoppy smell. It is s good beer, but just does not hold the hop flavor and bitterness I love.

Poured from a can into a plastic cup(all that was available ). Although JDub's website called this beer orange I found it almost brown with a quickly disappearing white head. Despite being consumed from a plastic cup showed good lacing.I am not a big IPA fan but tried to give this beer a chance. Smell was straight grapefruit as was the taste.Overall not one I would purchase again but if your buying...
