From bottle.
Amber gold, very clear color. Tee head fades away quite fast, stays only thin layer and white ring foam around the glass.
Clear but strong nose with citrus, orange peel, herbal and hoppy notes. Taste is lightly hoppy with orange peel and grapefruit notes. More than medium length aftertaste with hoppy bitterness and some citrus notes.
Very nice everyday IPA.

Pretty standard American IPA...no frills, a bit flat and uninspired, but still better than most of the swill you will find on your grocer's shelf...pop a top and enjoy

Wonderful gold pour into a 19 ounce snifter. White head disappears quickly. Smell is caramel, ready malts, boozy, pine. Taste is mandarin orange, faint grapefruit and orange peel, caramel malts. I also get some soap. Mouthfeel is a little sticky, average carb. Not a bad beer but doesn't have much of a hop profile and is a bit too malty. Goes down easy. Not bad, but not good either.

Pours bright copper, decent head.

odd aroma, bit of tropical fruits, touch of cabbage

Odd taste, metallic, drying, a bit juicy on the end

medium body, well carbed

not very good really, its just a bit odd.
