Hazy orange pour. Fluffy white, soapy looking head. Nice Hershey hoppy nose. Orange, floral. Fresh and crisp. Lemon, orange. Lightly touched by caramel malt. Very strong bitter finish. Soapy and foamy in the mouthfeel. Probably needs the bitterness turned down a touch. Malt is just right, hops are strong. Just really assertively bitter. Awesome addition to the local scene. Clearly not dumbed down for anyone. Tasty stuff.

An undiscovered gem of an IPA, truck loads of hops in aroma and flavor, a bit off in color, slight haze as you might find in other hop bombs. Better in my opinion than Heady.

From the 12 fl. oz. can. The pour is mainly orange-amber and vaguely hazy. Off-white head. It’s man IPA so the floral hops must be evident and they are. That and the toasted breaded malts. Those floral hops are very notable on the nose along with the toasted biscuit character. It is what I might expect. Medium and smooth body. The body is medium and smooth. Flora hops aplenty in the taste mingle well with the toasted malts. There are many IPA’s out there that are just like this and they all are enjoyable. The taste has an abundance of floral hops mixed in with those biscuit malts. I drink so many beers that have similar characteristics and this one is similar to Wachusetts Larry and others, but I really enjoyed it nonetheless. But it does the trick.

Deep chestnut brown, offwhite head. Aroma is mildly hoppy and fruity. Very bitter with a strong malty backbone. Grassy, piney.

Copper color out of the can with a sticky foamy yellowish beige head. Aromatic earthy hops with some grapefruit notes. Rich, smooth caramel sweetness and coarse bread with tons of grapefruit rind, orange marmalade, and earthy hops. Nice, full flavored IPA.
