Ultra-clear orange with a very nice slab of thick, lumpy foam on top. Aromas of tangerine, lemon, and peach alongside pine and light toast. Floral hops and black pepper notes intertwine with the fruit. Classic IPA grapefruit and slight bitter pine resin, lingering citrus oils, floral and slightly leafy, with some fruity, peachy dankness. Medium bodied, crisp, with a tidy bitterness. This was a very enjoyable, classic West Coast IPA that I'm glad to see on the shelves in NC.

Poured from 22oz bottle into a large snifter.
Pours medium amber with one finger of bubbly head.
Smells dank with some breadiness.
Taste inline with aromas, but rather one note IMO.
Mouthfeel was inviting and very good.
Overall, this was an ok IPA. I was expecting a lot more based on brewery and rep. Dankness was enjoyable and good, but rather one note and somewhat flat in taste profile.
