Best thing about this beer is how it looks, a rich amber hue with a frothy foamy head that dissipated quickly but left a slight lacing. Smell is more bitter roasted malt than anything, a bit of hoppiness. Taste is malty, mild funky hop aftertaste. Clean feel, light bodied, slight booziness. Not bad, but nothing to write home about.

Sampling a cold 12 oz can poured into my .5L dimple mug. Beer is courtesy of a trade with @jvgoor3786. Thank you!

The beer pours a bright clear amber to copper color with a fluffy orangish tinted head of 2 cm foaming up. I really like when the head picks up some color from the beer. This foam fades slowly to a sturdy surface layer throughout the sampling and creates windowpane lattice when I swirl the beer or take a sip.
The aroma is a nice mix of pine sap and some grapefruity citrus notes. Clean hoppy nose with faint hints of a toffee buried under the hop lead.
First sip reveals an easy to drink smooth textured medium body. I also get fine tingly carbonation that fizzes up as I swirl the beer in my mouth.
Flavor is what I anticipate from the nose and style. I get a very short lived toffee flavor as the beer enters my mouth and then this gives way to hops. The hop character is not juicy. I get pine sap, grapefruit rind and the finish is dry and astringent bitter bite. I dont get any hints of the 6% ABV and the beer drinks pretty fast and easy.
A nice crisp refreshing old school IPA. Glad to have tried this one and brings back memories of pre juice bomb IPAs.

Thanks goes out to russpowell for this brew.

12 oz. Can
Batch No. 1307
Best By: 27/MAR/2019

Poured into a Tired Hands glass a pretty nice clean/clear dark amber color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-white head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a nice little citrus complex (orange, tangerine), piney. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, with a nice little citrus complex (orange, tangerine), piney. Medium body, ABV is hidden pretty nicely, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty brew. Closer to an amber ale than an IPA to me. Thanks Russ!

Pours an effervescent caramel with 2+ fingers of cream colored head. Sheets of lacing & lovely head retention

S: Faint bready & piney notes

T: Pineyness & dryness up front. Resiny as this warms, faint cakey sweetness on the edges & plenty of dryness as this warms, just a little grapefruit as well. Finishes piney, dry & with a little cakeyness

MF: Medium & creamy carbonation, good balance

This is an old school in your face IPA, drinks easy, good effort
