A perfect session beer. The first can is great, but the ones following only improve. Aromatically balanced, a slight spiciness on the tongue, great carbonation.

This is a TRUE session beer. It's smooth without sacrificing how an IPA should taste. I would recommend this to everyone. Great Job!

Served out of a growler, smell comes off with hints of caramel and light barley.
Maybe some nuts in there as well. Color is a apricot kind of reddish orange.
Mouthfeel is nice, not too heavy or too light, taste is great, really gets the gist of a bitter beer. Overall I say that this beer is a perfect session beer and that I would recommend it for anyone who likes bitter type beers.
