3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I am surprised I haven’t rated this at the brew-pub but am glad to try it in cans regardless. This is really a nice IPA w/ a bright, fresh hop aroma. It pours clear orange w/ a small head of fine bubbles. Nose is peachy, fruity hops w/ a twinge of pine. Flavor and bitterness are rather light for the style which makes this drink much lighter than it actually is, which is either a good or bad thing depending on whether you gotta drive later. Finishes clean w/ just a touch of bitterness. Definitely, this is one of the better packaged IPAs in the area and I will be buying more in the future.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear orange with a white head. I get a very citrus aroma dominated by grapefruit along with a pine mixture, with undertones of caramel and lemon. Taste is well balanced. I get more orange instead of grapefruit, along with resin, pine, and hops. Hops are smooth, not offering a big IPA kick. Medium bodied, with a sticky texture. Piney hop aftertaste. Easily drinkable, this one is quite crisp actually. This is an enjoyable IPA that is solid in everything it offers.

On tap at the brewery. Slightly hazy orange color with small khaki head and good lacing. Aroma has lots of citrus and piney hops balanced by a slight caramel malt backbone. Finish is dry but very clean. Medium body without much carbonation. Overall a very solid IPA which deserves be better known.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
8/11/12. GTMW - from a can, I believe. Light amber pour with a small khaki head. American hops in the aroma with some citrus and pine on top of some caramel and malt. Nicer flavor with a good hop bitterness, plenty of a fresh hop aspect, citrus, pine, and a good malt backing. Solid.
