3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. A fresh, piney-orangey, well-hopped IPA. Fairly crisp on the first sip and successively more complex, well-malted and dry on the finish. Just a quality beer that stays in its lane, doing the things well it is supposed to do well. Good stuff.

Can: Hazy brownish-orange pour with a large creamy tan head. Good bits of lacing. Nose is really mild, but has a nice citrus hop note when you can catch it. Solid hoppy flavor. Citrus and light pine. Lingering bitters. Not a world beater, but enjoyable.
