Flavor is solid, peach, mango, orange, tangerine, piney, chivey, soap. Clean, zesty finish. Really solid. I’d be happy with this as my local.

On tap, nice, amber color with a foamy white head that stuck around for a bit. Not terribly hoppy, lightly balanced and a little more crisp on the tongue than most IPAs. Quite a pleasant experience and a tasty beverage. Definitely a nice addition to dining out!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper-ish color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is mostly grassy, though still inviting. Taste is moderately bitter, and feels slightly harsh, like it doesn’t have enough balance to it. OK, but nothing terribly interesting.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz can. Pours clear straw gold with a small frothy white head that goes to a thin film and laces the glass.
The aroma is subdued - stinky and metallic hops.
The flavor is subdued - some resiny hops that have decent bitterness. The mouthfeel is light bodied and kind of watery.
Overall, I liked this better on tap. The can is watery and subdued with not a lot of flavor.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear golden with a thin foamy white lacy head. Nice aroma of sweet caramel and floral resins with a touch of orange zest and a little bit of pine. The flavor is very nicely balanced and deep and smooth, with some grassy floral hops, a touch of pine resin, some caramalt, and a little touch of sweet orange zest. The amount of bitterness is just right and very finely balanced, like a smooth Pale Ale. Nice minimal tones of resin and citrus and floral hops on a sweet medium/full ride.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can - this is my kind of IPA in that it is clean, dry, crisp, and light - not heavy, dense, and overburdened with malt sweetness - the nose in particular is a pungent mix of dankness and juicy citrus - clean and medium dry malts give the strong hop character something to stick to - high bitterness, but not too acidic or abrasive - the hop flavor is mostly a nice mix of woody, earthy, and citrus - however, there are periodic notes of garlic and diesel-ish dankness that make me enjoy it a little less - change the hop mix slightly and this might be in 4 range for me.
