Can thrown in by Seth on an awesome trade. Aroma is muted apricot and papaya with some passionfruit and bitter grass notes as well. Pours amber with a nice frothy head. Taste follows suit. Papaya and grass stand out but not in a sweet way. Nice even bitterness. An easy sippin’ and unassuming IPA. Nice.

Consumed from the can. Smell is very citrus forward, pine and hop resin. Taste follows with added malty sweetness. Good beer, just a little too sweet for me.

Piney and resinous hops dominate in the immediate nose and taste notes. Finish is quick, clean, and draft-like. Easy to drink. I thought this beer really hid its 6.9% pretty well.

Malty floral hop aroma. Maybe a bit if stinky feet in there but not much. Full flavored and pretty well balanced. Prefer a bit of a different hop profile but still a pretty well made ipa.

On tap at battleship. Poured an amber/ yellow color with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus, pine and grass. Orange peal and tropical fruit flavors which turn to rounded, increasing bitter hop and resin notes with a biscuity malt backbone. This is a very good IPA on tap right now.

Canned on 08/19 - thanks JBPortland! Pours hazy butterscotch amber with a medium creamy beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is pretty standard pine and caramel. Flavor is about the same, medium sweet and light bitter. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Not too bad despite having a bit of age on it.

Amber-orange color, good creamy off-white head. Piney-hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Fruity, slightly herbal, piney flavor. Ok average IPA.

12 fl oz can via S.B. Pours a mildly hazy dark gold with a huge White Sea foam-like head. Aroma is pine-resin dominant. Taste is reflective of aromas, this is a resin hop-bomb but hides the 6.9% abv well. Assertive carbonation, long astringent finish. Not complex but great when you're looking for a hoppy punch in the face.

Can from trade with crajun. Pours a hazy amber color with a small foamy head that lingers nicely. Aroma is nice and musty. Pine needles, flowers, citrus, light caramel malt. Great taste too. Light sweetness and moderate bitterness. Nice hop complexity with a malty backbone. Medium body. Really good, I slammed this one quick.

12oz can (9/16 batch) into glass, pours semi-clear dark orange with 1 finger head. Nose is dank, musty, grassy citrus. Mouthfeel is carbonated, smooth, bit of a bite, malty. Taste is crisp, grassy malt, evergreen, lemon, bitter, grains. Finish is biscuity, lemongrass. Pretty well done. Sessionable. Good.
