Poured a copper/orange murky color with a sudsy, white and thin, yet lacy head. I couldn't pick much up in the nose, just some light herbal hops and a touch of malt. The front-end was sweetish, with some tropical/light fruit throughout. A grassy/herbal and bitter backend; slightly dry in the aftertaste with a little bit of a dank taste. Overall quite mild, really. A medium bodied beer, with a touch of booze. Moderately carbonated that makes it slightly crisp
Could easily have 2 bottles. It's decent, I'd drink it again.

Pretty good but a bit forgettable. Not enough bite for a beer of this style. Still abv will contribute to a feeling that all is right with the world after a couple of bottles.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky orange color with a small white head. The aroma is hops, grass and malt. The taste is some citrus hops and malt.

The aroma is not very suggestive of hops but this beer is not about the hops anyway as its very best feature is the caramel-like malts that offer a lot of complexity and a nice contrast to the intense (but not aromatic) bitterness of the hops. A very nice IPA, but different to most American IPAs out there.

L: Comes in a hazy, translucent, golden orange color with a huge creamy head. Very long retention, with tons of lacing left behind.

S: Cannabis, earth, pine, orange, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and toasted biscuit malt.

T: Huge grapefruit, orange, and pine resin upfront. Followed with pineapple, hints of papaya and mango, mint and catnip. A sweet toasted biscuit and caramel malt in the middle, but kept in check by an earthy, piney bitterness the whole way. Finishes well-balanced with a lingering bitterness, and lingering notes of grapefruit, orange, earth, and pine.

F: Medium-bodied, well-carbonated, smooth and creamy throughout. Finishing lightly dry with sticky hop oils, it's an excellent mouthfeel.

O: A really good easy-drinking IPA. Chock-full of hop flavors, and yet run-of-the-mill, in a good way. I dig it.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is minty, some pine. Taste is a whole lot of mint, a good bit of pine as well, moderate bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, berry, grapefruit, lime, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge tangerine, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, berry, grapefruit, lime, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus rind, peppery, herbal, grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, peach, pear, apricot, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, berry, grapefruit, citrus rind, pepper, pine, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and sticky/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 6.5%. Overall this is an awesome IPA! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink; even with the fairly aggressively bitter/drying finish. A big dank bomb of an IPA. Lots of pine and earthy spice, balanced with juicy tropical/stone fruit character; solid malt backbone, with no residual sweetness. A really enjoyable offering. Love the hop profile: Columbus, Chinook, Mosaic, and Ekuanot.
