16oz can served in a big snifter. Canned on 10/17/19.

Pours hazy orange with a smallish head and medium carbonation. Smell is mild, tropical fruit.

Taste is tropical juice and citrus zest bitterness.

Mouthfeel is light, dry. Overall, nice beer.

4.32/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

L: A dirty dark murky orange with a two finger frothy beige head, settling at an average rate to a nice cap and sticky lacing.

S: Orange zest dominates, with muted notes of pineapple, pine resin, and herbal qualities.

T: Follows the nose with more of a mineral spirit and smooth citrus vibe.

F: Full bodied but not overbearing. Juice like and drinkable. The Booze is there but well blended and tolerable.

O: This is a solid IPA from the collective. I love how the malt is light enough to appreciate some nuance in the hop profile.

Pours a hazy orange color. A half finger length head retains well and yields lacing.

Hops presence is very aromatic with notes of fruit then lightly pungent herbs. Notes of freshly squeezed orange juice, pineapple, mango and berries. There is a slight touch of dank along with piny and grassy aromas.

Medium to full bodied, yet has a lightness to it that’s very drinkable. This is because it features a neutral dry cracker malt base instead of a thick doughy malt that other DIPAs tend to favor. This allows a wide range of hops flavors to dominate. Notes of light alcohol spiced fruit; pineapple, berries, mango, grapefruit, tangerine and oranges. Not too juicy or sweet, as a developing spicy middle palate brings about piny, grassy, and resiny flavors, along with a peppery bitterness. This plays well agains a moderate but tingly carbonation and a dry finish that has a bit of a spicy hops burn to it.

Another outstanding IPA from KCBC, one of my favorite local breweries.
