12 oz brown bottle

Pours moderately hazed, typical amber, typical mini cap and decent looking fine scattered lacing.

Pine and hop resin nose.

More resiny hops up front, soft malts below......easy drinking and respectable, if middle of the road kinda IPA....workable sessioner, better the decent value in a everyday kinda hopped up brew

I enjoyed this IPA but I would put it in the category of an everyday IPA. In other words, it didn’t give me quite that extra hoppy bite I enjoy but it was still a quality beer. I would grab a sixer of this on my way to game night at my brother in laws.

A decent IPA. The nose didn't have a ton going on or as strong a hoppy presence, but the taste was much better. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Worth checking out.

pours a hazy honey color small head faded quickly but did leave a spotty sticky lace and light pine herbal nose. your typical ipa taste with a smooth buttery bitter finish medium body and carbonation good. not bad but I am not a big ipa fan so I may not be doing it justice.

12 oz bottle from PA.
Lightly hazy golden amber colored body with a decent head.
Good hop-forward aroma promises tropical fruit flavors.
The flavor is fruity but more malty and herbal than the aroma suggests. It's also better than the aroma, and markedly harmonious for style.
Fine feel with medium body and carbonation.

Poured into a narrow pint glass: color is copper, head is lighter tan with fine to small bubbles, head presents about 1/2 inch thick then dissipates to 1/8 inch top and laces the glass.

Smell is light toasted malt, dryer, earthier hops with drops of citrus.

Taste is crisp hops, light toasted malt, minimal caramel sweetness; hop flavors are earthy and hint of citrus rind.

Mouthfeel is a bit stronger than i might have expected with a good hop bitterness.

Overall a good IPA, and somewhat expected a bit on the maltier side but without much sweetness - solid hop bitterness provides lasting mouthfeel.

Meh, another brewery attempt to jump on the mega-hops blend, juicy, tropical IPA bandwagon. Pours an attractive amber color with minimal head. I pick up mostly malt in the aroma, hops are subdued. Taste is muddled, the various hops don't amount to any sort of harmony of flavor. I get a really bothersome bubble gum taste underneath the bitterness. There's a lot of citrus overtones that dominate the taste for a moment but then the bitterness takes over. Definitely won't be buying this again. I really don't like tasting tropical fruit notes in my beer, I'd just make a smoothie if I wanted fruit. I'm going to have to make it a point to start reading the bottle before I buy to see if has descriptors such as juicy, tropical, citrusy etc.

I got a bottle of this in a mixed 12pck from a PA beer store near the WV border. The beer poured a hazy orangish with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had hints of citrus peel. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink...good presence of citrus spice and pine. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a decent beer.

Hazy and burnt orange. Thick lacing around the rim and a bouquet of pineapple and citrus. The flavor is quite bitter and has a creamy mouthfeel that finishes chalky. Tasty but forgettable, have to enjoy IPAs to appreciate as it's one sided
