Look: Clear yellow/amber with a rocky head. Good lacing.
Smell: Pine, grapefruit, lemon, mint. Not as heavy on the nose as a lot of IPAs.
Taste: Light caramel malt sweetness up front. Some citrus sweetness. A nice, minty, herbal, slightly bitter hop aftertaste.
Feel: Light, dry, crisp, and refreshing. Slightly watery.
Overall: This is a nice, mild, balanced, light IPA. Extremely drinkable.

On tap on Reston va. Decent lacing minimal head. Aroma is very weak. Taste is ok, a mild hoppy profile, more of an APA than IPA taste. Mouthfeel pops. It’s very drinkable but not a stellar IPA by any means.

This beer pour a bright orange with a solid head. The aroma leads with grapefruit pith, bright pine, bitter orange peel, and resin. The flavor follows suit, with grapefruit pith and a bit of flesh, bitter orange, pine, and a touch of caramel. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with tight, tense carbonation. Overall this is a really delicous classic beer, with good balances between sweetness and bitterness, and a rather moreish tinge.

12oz bottle, served in a milkshake pilsner glass. Date stamp: 03/22/19.

Appearance: Light to medium amber with just a bit of haze. Initial 1/4" thick white head died back to a persistent thin foam across the top. Long lasting fine strands of lacing all over the glass.

Smell: Faint - mostly floral with a bit of pine and citrus rind.

Taste: Hoppy up front with pine, orange, lemon, a bit of bready malt sweetnes, and then a very unexpected finish which is lager-like with noble hop character. Very unusual and it clashes just a bit.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, good thickness, definite stickiness on the teeth. Dry finish with some lingering spiciness on the tongue.

Overall / Drinkability: Versus all the other hoppy AIPAs out there, this one isn't very hoppy and has such an unusual finish that I feel its quite unique, but it's not quite working for me either. I find one is enough. Maybe with the right meal I would feel different about this beer, but by itself, it's just okay.

Amber body with a two fingers head
Quite citrusy, and resinous. Some caramel. The bitterness is distinctive. Not really balanced in any case.
Moderate carbonation

Very non-descript IPA, not very much flavor besides a vague bitterness and some oily hop acidity, heavy on the malt and not exactly a refreshing option

Poured from fresh 16 oz can.
Look was a very nice copper, with a large frothy head, a bit of lacing that lasts till the end.
Smell was of citrusy, grapefruit mostly, and some pine.
Tasted very nice, with good hoppiness, a little bitterness which was nice.
Feel was good, smooth, very easy drinking for 7% ABV.
Overall, very nice IPA offering. Can get locally, cheap. Will continue to purchase.

Pours a slightly hazy orangish honey color with a thick white cap that lingers and leaves good lacing. Aroma is citrus hop forward. Flavor follows with lots of citrus and a good hop bite. Feel is fresh and crisp, well carbonated. Overall a decent beer without being special.

Pours a light copper with a moderate white head. This is a solid, citrusy (predominantly grapefruit) IPA with a caramel malt backbone. A decent example of an old-school American IPA.
