12 ounce can into tulip glass, no canning date. Pours moderately hazy orange amber color with a 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange zest/rind, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity of hop notes with moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, orange zest/rind, tangerine, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pineapple, mango, floral, grass, pine, caramel, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity of hop flavors; with a nice crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent IPA. All around great complexity and balance of crisp hop flavors and moderate malt presence; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

On tap at Dublin Village Tavern in Columbus. Aroma is citrus and grass hops. Tastes are more of the same with a zippy resin vibe bitter finish. Very nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at home. Pour is clear orange with a big white head and good lacing. Big weed, ganja, grassy, grapefruity, caramelly, and bready - but really just a huge resinous/weed bomb. Taste is grapefruit, candied oranges, bread, caramel, weed, light grass, and dough with a big bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with high carbonation. Decent stuff, but may be a bit past its prime.

Dark orange color with slim white head and nice lacing. Aroma is crazy huge! Tons of citrus, pine, and tangerine. Flavor is very bitter, but balanced with sweet citrusy hops. Some bitter bombs are all bite and no flavor, but this tastes delicious.

12oz can - Pours pale amber with white head and great lacing. Nose is citrus and pine resin. Not that hoppy, surprisingly. Easy to drink and provides an almost dry finish. Glad I tried it.
