Canned 4/6/22. Two fingers of beige mixed bubbles; excellent cap retention; heavy ring; bands of soapy lace sheet the glass from top to bottom; pale amber liquid with excellent clarity. Oranges and bready malt nose. Taste is bitter orange rind followed by grapefruit and lemon; firm malt base; citrus finish. Medium light body; slightly sticky feel; moderate minus carbonation; no astringency; clean finish. Overall the beer drinks like a West Coast style minus the pine and resin; pleasant bitter citrus linger; a great example of an American Southern style IPA. I would like to drink more of this type of IPA.

Drinking to the Legacy and memory of the great E-VH,picked this beer out today for obvious reasons.Pours from the can into an imperial nonic a hazed burnt orange with a large billowing near two finger slight off white head atop,one full ring of lace is left behind.Grass and overripe citrus fruits in the nose,some what sweet aroma-wise.Quite malt driven on the palate,caramel and dough upfront followed by some dank citrus fruits,a nice drying sharp bitterness in the finish wich erases the big early sweetness.A pretty nice well rounded malty ipa,RIP and continue to "hammer on" my man.

16oz can from Tavour. Amber pour, tight foamy head settles quickly. Aroma hints at caramel malts and light pine, oranges. Taste is smooth and subdued blend of toadty malts and classic hops. Muted and approachable, silky.

16oz can served in a snifter. Dated 03/23/20, I think -- date is distorted over the bottom ridge and is therefore quite hard to read. Gift from @mr-jj.

Pours a reddish amber, moderately hazy, with a smallish head and medium carbonation. Smell is (and this really surprises me) a hint of raspberry, grass and hay. The hint of raspberry really intrigues me, but the grass and hay are not inspiring.

Taste is again a hint of raspberry at the beginning, followed by a little bit of tea flavor and a strong but vague bitterness to finish. Again, the hint of raspberry really intrigues me, but the tea and vague bitterness are not inspiring.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Maybe a little sticky. Overall...it's interesting, and not bad.

Canned a month ago.

L -- Copper amber body with moderate haze and two fingers of off-white head produced with moderate pour. Good retention and great lacing
S -- Lychee, kiwi, lemon sorbet, candied grapefruit, strawberry/banana puree, vanilla, hint of sweet floral. Not particularly explosive, but nice enough
T -- The strawberry/banana thing comes through here too, it might be partly from the yeast and not the hops. Also getting a lot of overripe citrus
F -- Medium- mouthfeel, medium+ carb. Pretty easy drinking
O -- One small bone I have to pick is the color of the beer on the can and the color of the beer in the glass are very different

Pours Golden with good aroma of hops. Tates of rye with added maltiness. Solid IPA with floral mouthfeel. One of the better tasting IPAs I’ve had not form the northeast.
