1 PINT can
Served in an oversized, stemless, wine glass

This beer pours a brilliant amber with golden highlights. It is topped with two inches of beige head that leaves nice rings of lacing as I drink.

It has a big citrus aroma. Orange and grapefruit are at the forefront.

The taste is loaded with citrus. It is juicy with a light pine finish.

Light bodied. Medium mouthfeel

This is nothing earth shattering, but it is a well made IPA and very enjoyable.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

16 oz can

Pours hazy orange, sugar white head retains as sudsy lacing.

Smells of cereal and bready malts, hints of honey and orange peel, with citrus and earthy hops.

Flavor is of biscuit and bready malts, some citrus, and earthy and dry piney hops.

Medium body, tingly carbonation on the tongue.

Above average but not fantastic. The flavors are decent but the balance of them is of, the end result is a bit bland. Drinks smooth. Probably won't have it again but worth trying once.

The slightly higher ABV makes it better than the typical American IPA. At least for my taste.

16oz can, no apparent freshness date
Tall, frothy ivory colored head slowly fades atop a hazed apricot colored ale. Zesty citrus and earthy pine with some light caramel malt for a nose. Pithy citric grapefruit and orange pair with earthy pine and a hint of mango; caramel malt and light nutty grain provide a malt backbone. Full bodied & resinous with hop oils coating the palate; moderate carbonation, with a bittetlr semi-dry finish. Overall, good American IPA, but not sure I'd get it again.

Pours a hazy sunny yellow orange.

Bright citrus aroma through and through.

Citrusy in flavor as well, with a balanced malt bill.

Light bodied, medium carbonation, soft, smooth.

Overall, a bit underwhelming overall but a drinkable brew.
