Super fresh can on a cool (cooler than feels normal) April morning.

Mostly clear light copper or iced black tea color, two fingers of fluffy off-white head, lacing all around.
Citrusy, floral hops. Nice and hoppy with some biscuit and woodiness in the background.
Good bitterness, fresh hops, light toasty grains that give just enough sweetness.
A little weak in the mouthfeel, though it's still perfectly drinkable.

A good straightforward IPA, one of my personal favorites of the brewery.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Look: Hazy rust color, appealing.

Smell: Nice and hoppy, but not crazily hoppy.

Taste: Very nice balance of malt and hops, with the focus being on the hops and hints of malt.

Feel: Somewhat smooth, decent amount of carbonation so it goes down easily.

Overall: I much prefer this to the Grapefruit IPA they make, and they distribute it so it's easier to acquire. Definitely a beer you should check out if you're in the area.

Rusty color. Sweet malts for smell. Flavor is bold and sort of smoky with a good malty presence. Overall this a unique in a good way ipa. Different than the west coast style you see so much of. I enjoyed. Cheers.

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.
