look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

This beer isnt shattering expectations but it is incredibly drinkable for an 8.6% abv. Bought locally, poured from a can.

L- Copper color, decent head that didn't linger
S- Underwhelming aroma that is vaguely floral
T- Slightly sweet, hints of pine. Not bitter at all and no sour aftertaste.
F- Lightly carbonated extremely easy to drink.

O- Will be buying again. Again, not in my top 5 but surely a drinkable local beer that I enjoyed.

3.54/5  rDev -9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Canned on 7/2/19

Pours a slightly hazy burnished copper orange capped with a huge head of fluffy white foam; spectacular retention trickles down slowly with huge globs of soapy lacing clinging in tow, while some islands of foam make up the cap.

Aroma brings out a big dose of lightly sweet floral citrus to start, with a flaky malt and pineapple/orange zest tone developing quietly.

Taste shows a touch of candied pineapple to go with some fuzzy peach and intermittent doses of strawberry, wheat, flaked malt, and grapefruit peel; a touch of fruity sweetness comes through just as the swallow peaks.

Mouthfeel is subtly bright and lightly prickly, with a smooth medium body and muddled bitterness remaining consistent through to the finish.

Structured nicely all-around, but too toned down to have much of an impact as anything more than a solid DIPA; a definite plus, though: it's ABV does go virtually unnoticed, leaving it at bare minimum incredibly approachable.

A similar profile to the Alchemist’s Heady Topper. Excellent hops flavor and subtle sweatness. Strong hoppy, piney aroma and a pungent yet floral taste that remains consistent from start to finish.

Poured from a growler, purchased around Christmas. Hazy, golden darker orange in color. Citrus, orange, Grapefruit, wheat, and pine. Cracker malt. Medium bodied. Solid balance between sweetness and bitterness. Shorter, dry finish. Surprisingly good for a newer brewery.

look: 2.25 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.75

Pours a copper color. 1/4inch head of an off-white color. No retention and no lacing. Smells of........ well not much of anything. Fits the style of a boring IPA. Not much carbonation level. There is also a slight bitterness. . Overall, boring appearance, blend, and feel, with a below average aroma and body. Disappointed!!
