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.

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.
