look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

L: This is the best thing about this beer looks hazy golden yellow leaning towards slight orange.
S: citrus hop with malt and grain but it has a strange note on the grain end of things
T: Big burst of herbal/piney hop faint grain in the middle then pithy bitter push thru and hangs on the end.
F: thin with a dry finish
O: Ugh I think this brewery's style isn't for me. Not the worst IPA but there are so many better one's Strange how it smells citrus and tastes herbal/piney. Overall I do not like it.

Light yellow/orange color; murky.

Bright white, frothy head; strong lacing.

Nice citrus nose; hops aren't hiding here!

Thin mouthfeel.

Citrus disappears in the taste; macro-lager flavors take over. A severe disappointment.

L : From the can it pours OJ colored and forms into a darker hazy iced tea color. The head is huge and leaves tons of lacing as it recedes at a slow pace. After 2 minutes it's ready for consumption as the head has left just enough cap on top to wet the upper lip and imbibe the rest of it.

S : Quite a bit of brown sugar, grapefruit, pine needles, baked malts, and toffee. A deep fried breaded orange aroma wraps it up.

T : Dark bread crusts, blood orange, grapefruit, hop juice, tons of pine and toffee, and something I can't quite put a finger on. It's quite cloying with its caramel and toffee, and the rush of bitter sort of clashes with it. After a few sips I'm ready to dump it, it's not for me.

F : Creamy, buzzing, with a dry finish.

O : Tastes more like an overhopped scotch ale than anything, just way too sticky and cloying. Not a fan, probably Thunderhead's WORST offering.
