No canning date

Pours a hazy burnt orange with a finger pillowy white head; leaves walls of lacing and has solid head retention.

Aroma is boozy orange peel and a fleetingly soothing creamy citrusy sweetness; blunt herbal tones and a bit of hemp are also present, but a booziness just dominates a bit too much for my preferences.

Taste is giving some bitter grapefruit to go along with boozy oranges and some heavily herbal notes toward the finish; still remains harsh and a bit one-dimensional.

Mouthfeel has good balance for a beer that’s turned out to be unexpectedly boozy, with medium carbonation supporting the flavor profile toward a fairly crisp, juicy, and impactful finish; really makes it even more a shame there wasn’t much balance to the profile.

This is structured nicely, but really suffers from its boozy imbalances; what flavors that made it through were solid, though, and I get the sense this would have been much more enjoyable otherwise.

A: The beer is very hazy dark yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving a narrow collar around the edge of the glass and some lacing down the sides.
S: Moderate aromas of dank citrus are present in the nose along with hints of pine.
T: The taste follows the smell, starting off with flavors of dank citrus and finishing with notes of pine. There is a light amount of bitterness mostly towards the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied, chewy, and a little juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The hop hash imparts a lot of concentrated flavors of dankness and resinous flavors to this IPA.
