Pours clear amber color with a 2-finger off-white head. Mild aroma of piney hops. Maybe some caramel as well. Medium body, lightly oily with a brief finish. Flavor mixes notes of grapefruit and pine, with a touch of caramel underneath.

Draft at OMA airport. Pours a cloudy, brown color with a thin white head. Thick, hoppy aroma with a smooth malty finish. Great flavor. Dark citrus with some hops mixed in. You would think it is a black IPA but it isn’t. Smooth finish. Really solid beer,

Beer pours light amber in color with an off white colored head. Aroma is piney and kind of dank. Taste is bitter, but not overly so. This is just a nicely balanced IPA that will be a regular drinker for me. Hits all of the mark I am looking for in a good IPA. Yummy!

Can. Pours a clear golden dark amber hue with a decent foamy tan head. Retains its head for long time. Aroma of piney, resin, mango, papaya, orange, caramel. Taste of mango, caramel, tropical fruit, piney, biscuit. Medium to full body. Overall moderately bitter but good tropical fruit characteristics rounded off with some sweeter malts. Suprised me. I don't usually like maltier IPAs but this is well balanced. Good flavoring hop finish.

12oz can. New distro to this state, so I’m assuming fresh. Pours a clear copper color. Small white head. Aromas are a combo of pine and citrus. Taste is moderately bitter and semi dry. Flavors of citrus notes and spruce branches. Decent amount of chewy malt. Not bad at all, actually.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Craft Beer Base, 6.9% it pours a deep copper with a big foamy off-white head & great lacing that clings to the glass. The aroma is a wonderful mix of fruits and resinous dank weedy pine. Medi to full bodied with a pleasingly full mouthfeel and a palate cleansing dry finish that has you yearning for another sip. The taste is bitter with a touch of boozy heat, pine bark woodsy hoppiness with a touch of fruity notes. The overall taste is nicely balanced and you get a touch of biscuit from the malts that provides a hearty counterpoint to the hops. While it won’t be blowing you away it will definitely satisfy you - good stuff.

From a can...pours dark amber with a 1-inch head and heavy lacing. Underwhelming aroma with a feint hint of pine. Hoppy taste without much bite and an under carbonated finish. Mislabeled as a West Coast IPA; yet still a decent beer.
