A thanks to the incredible woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, some malts. Taste is dank, herbal, significant bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a satisfying beer.

Extra-Dank IPA. But I am not getting much dankness. Looks are not thrilling and the aroma is nothing special. Best part of the beer is the mouthfeel that is softly textured and nicely carbonated.

Pours almost clear bright yellow with a huge white head that hangs around. Nice lacing. Aroma is floral and citrusy. Flavor follows the nose with a touch of dank bitterness on the finish. Feel is light bodied with only adequate carbonation. Overall a fine beer.

Dark yellow in color with light viscous appearance, yet with good clarity. Poured with  moderate, bright white foam with medium retention. Medium earthy, eatery aromas with a pleasant dankness. Medium malty aromas with light caramel notes. Medium bodied with medium light carbonation and light creamy feel. Earthy and light herbal hop flavors that slowly expand and transition to a mellow dankness. Medium hip bitterness through the middle. Malty and earthy herbal hop flavors on the back end. Bitterness transitions to light warmth to the end Finished with an herbal bitter bite, light malty notes and piney and dank bitterness. Smooth and easy drinking feel with great hop forward balance and a solid malty base. Very tasty.

Pours a mostly clear golden color. Smell is fruity and sweet. Taste has citrus,stone fruit ,some pine hop and sweet malts in the finish. Mouth feel is crisp ,hoppy with lingering bitterness. Kind of a W/C style IPA to me with lower pine bitterness.
