Can poured into a teku glass

Thick two finger white foam cap settles to a solid ring, sticky lacings over a deep translucent honey amber liquid

Aroma of citrus, bit of tropical

Taste is dank, bit of pine, grapefruit, malt

Hop nibble lingers, bitter finish

Good beer

Pours beautiful hazy orange/amber. I said HAZY not murky not yeasty but mildly hazy. Wonderful aroma, lots of citrus. Drinks smooth and very well balanced. Not too sweet and the strong fruity notes are balanced by an assertive but not in your face bitterness. Excellent beer and an excellent IPA. Glad to see somebody still making a good, clean IPA!

Thanks goes out to colby600 for this brew.

16 oz. Can

My first from this brewery.

Poured into a tulip glass a very nice clean/clear dark golden orangy color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger plus white head, which also leaves some very nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, slightly malty, pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango), pretty nice pineyness. The taste is pretty nice hoppy, slight malt, pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango), pretty nice pineyness. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, with a very nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a pretty tasty brew, a nice take on the style. Glad to have gotten a chance to try it. Thanks Bill!

16oz can. Pours a hazy golden orange color with an inch of frothy white head. Some lacing. The aroma is a blend of citrus and pine. Some tropical fruit notes as well. The taste is orange and tangerine with some guava and piney hops. Toasted malts and citrus peel at the end. Bitter. Creamy mouthfeel and dry. Worth buying again.

Hop forward West Coast IPA all the way. You taste all the70 IBU but t.he 6.5 ABV makes this very drinkable. The smell is very strong as the hop finish. This has a lot of citrus flavor. Hop heads will like the IPA.
