Clear golden orange, frothy white head. SMell is light and herbal with citrus melon and squash. Flavor is again mild, some citrus, herbs, very light, low bitterness, slight acidity. Pleasant but not amazing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The pale amber colored body was very clear, and the pour formed a nicely proportioned, two-finger thick, foamy head. The smell was grapefruit and mandarin oranges, and was very pleasing, but a bit mild. The taste once again showcased the citric hops, with lemony, grapefruity bitterness that was very much to my liking. There was a touch of sweetness and some light herbs in the finish. The body was a little on the light side. I enjoyed this beer.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
If you like IPA, you need to taste this, its terribly on style. From the start its pungent hops, all the way down. Tastes like way more than 7%. I don’t care for this style because this, like its style, rototills across your taste buds and down the throat. wew. Only thing that makes this almost palatable for me is the slight amount of thankful co2. Ruined my taste buds, cannot taste another beer today.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz can into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy dark gold with a thick one finger white head. Really good head retention and lacing thanks to some serious carbonation. Not bad.
The aroma is very earthy and very dank. Wet leaves, tree bark, garlic, and onions along with weed. A tiny bit of toast from the malt underneath but hops really dominate.
There is a little more fruit in the taste but still a lot of earthy, dank hops. A bit of orange and tangerine and a bit of citric tartness. The malt is caramel and toast but takes a back seat to the hops. Mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side with a strong bitterness and lingering mild sweetness.
Overall, just a very run of the mill IPA. The earth and dank is a nice departure from the typical citrus IPA’s but I can’t say I’m really impressed. I’ll stick to the bourbon barrel ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden brown topped by a dense white head. Citrus, dust, and earthy hops in the aroma. Light bitterness, some grapefruit and mango flavors followed by a hint of nutty malts. Pretty run of the mill IPA, not bad but nothing to write home about.

Solid beer that I would drink again solely based on the price. Got it for $8 for 4 16 oz. It's a very drinkable beer that leans more APA than IPA to me.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pint. Can. Meh. Actually, a mildly metallic aroma. A little flat on flavor. Nominally piney. Run of the mill IPA bitterness. Medium bodied. Opaque with a decent off-white head.
