This is an extremely well-made IPA. Strongly bitter yet still citrus-like on the tongue. Not one-dimensional. Underrated here.

Strong flavor for a flagship IPA - lots of west coast character in here. Some citrus, but mainly this is dominated by resiny hop bitterness. A nice everyday beer for hopheads.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can at home in Salisbury, CT. Pours mostly clear gold with a frothy white head. Inviting nose, with some pithy tangerine, orange, pale bread and melon. Light to medium sweet with some bitter pine needles and citrus rind. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Lightly resinous on the finish with bitter grass and pine, dry melon, more orange and tangerine. Decent.

12 oz can shared by b3shine. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice bitter character, more earthy, grassy, toasted malt, light fruit character, solid enough ipa.

Can to half-pint glass. Looks good; a hazy dark apricot with foamy eggshell head. Smells solid; bitter, but nicely balanced with the medium-bodied malt profile. Some citrus zest. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. An enjoyable classically bitter IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lightly hazy, dark golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, orange, and light pine. Taste of orange, light pine, resiny, and a bitter grapefruit finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma and flavor both bring balanced sweet orange flavors, almost like orange candy, but the sweetness is so smooth and subtle with light zest ending so pleasantly on the palate The body is full and light at the same time!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Modern Apizza. Citrus and tropical hop nose, meaty golden malts, peaches and oranges. Decently balanced and tasty beer, though it was way too flat when served to us, which was quite a downer.

Extra from Thomas. Can, no date. It’s an IPA, above average bitterness. Not much else. Serviceable, and drinkable.
