Super hazy orange, white head, good retention, ok lace
Smells like orange and overripe pineapple
Pine and grapefruit, a bit of orange and pineapple,
Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation, astringent
Would be a lot better if it weren't for the astringency

What's not to like? A tasty, satisfying sub 5% IPA. Maybe not quite as delicious of the top tier strong IPAs out there (I love 'em), but flavorful and fun to drink.

12oz. can served in a tulip nonic. Pours a dull, milky orange with a loose, 1/8th inch, off-white head that quickly dissipates towards the edges. Clarity is hazy. Nose expresses a hints of citrus, pith and herbal notes. Taste consistent with nose. Mouthfeel is light in body with an assertive carbonation and a mild acidity. Overall, a bit lackluster.

Poured from the tall boi into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy bright golden color with a finger of sudsy white head. The head leaves a crown of lacing before settling into a thin sheet.

The aroma brings notes of grapefruit and lemon, with plenty of bready malt and spicy pine on the back.

The flavor is citrusy up front, bringing notes of grapefruit, lemon and tangerines. The sweet, doughy malt comes through in the middle before a piney finish. Not bad at all.

The feel is medium-light bodied with pretty good carbonation. Very crisp with a dry finish.

Overall, this is a very good session IPA. It's wonderfully balanced between the sweeter citrus notes and pine, and has a nice malt backbone. Incredibly drinkable without sacrificing flavor.

From the large can, it pours a hazy amber with a modest white head that slowly reduces as you watch. In the nose, it is a bit of citrus and malt. In the mouth, the citrus also comes through, as well as a solid base of malt. Decent session IPA.

Picked-up as part of a mixed twelve-pack a few weeks ago at Kappy's in Norwell for about fifteen dollars. My fifth brew reviewed by these guys, have had many more. This is a solid session IPA, would definitely get again.

19.2 oz can from Harvest Market,
Pours a hazy lemony yellow with a frothy bone white head that slowly recedes. Citrus bread and earth on the nose. Flavor follows the aroma quite well. Light ashy mouthfeel. Decent easy to drink ipa.

From the 12 fl. oz. can dated 07/24/19. Sampled on August 16, 2019.

The appearance is a cloudy, opaque looking yellow with a modest and fading white fizzy head.

Pleasant aromas of pine, grapefruit and an lower profile white bread character.

Light mouthfeel. Effervescent.

The taste is fruity and juicy with a sweetness in the milder malt character. Much more bitter finale than I anticipated.

Pours a deep golden orange, with fluffy/creamy head, Excellent head retention. Smell is muted with faint hop/berry smell. Taste is subdued with a hint of berries , pine, delicious malt bill. Feels well built. Thin viscosity (which works well). Again the malts used in this are top shelf. Overall try it this summer if you can find it-

Pours a nice orange amber. Has a sharp, crisp almost tangy finish that reminds me of rye spice. Malt is there but in great balance with the bitter hops. Didn't get the citrus fruit flavors... Maybe a bit of rind in the bitter finish. The price point on this beer is excellent. Great flavor for a lower abv IPA. If you want an IPA that won't get you wrecked after a couple but still want to taste something powerful and pleasing, then this is for you. Very enjoyable. I will definitely buy this beer again.
