Pours a nice dark orange. Hops as soon as the can opens. Danky pine, more aromatic than most Midwest/east coast IPAs. Nice hoppiness, and a malty finish.

12oz can via trade. Poured a good looking clear rusty amber body with a smaller quick fading foamy light beige head. Aroma is sweeter citrus and caramel malts, tangerine and brown bread dough, some lemon and lime with grainy crusts. Body is medium to lighter with softer carbonation and a quicker finish on the aftertaste, weak and lightly watery sums it up. Flavor of citrus, lemons, tangerine, yellow grapefruits, older hop resin, dough, caramel matls and some toffee, grapefruit on the finish. Meh it’s okay.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. Aggressive citrus notes - grapefruit and orange peel - along with a moderate grainy or cereal note and a complimentary toffee undertone emanate from the glass. The pour is a slightly hazy yellow - amber with a sudsy, foamy white head. The head recedes slowly and ends up leaving a moderate "film" layer (with a few holes) and a medium - low thick ring around the edge. The head is a mix of bubble sizes and leaves a moderate amount of fluffy lace down the glass. The taste is a well blended medium-high bitter and sweet. The medium / medium-full body is mostly a dry, hoppy bitterness with a pleasant juicy caramel malt supporting it. The slick texture and zippy carbonation, along with the pine and citrus zest finish give this beer a very crisp quality. The aftertaste is not dissimilar to a toast and citrus jelly taste, with a citrus peel like bitterness. The aftertaste is fairly persistent and of above average strength. Nothing about this beer is extreme or overly complex; however, it’s very good at what it is. In my opinion, this is what I think of when I think of an IPA.

Can thanks to Beechner224. Pours a decent goldish color. Nothing special. Smells of some hops. decent. taste is the same. some hop flavor. nothing too in your face. I guess its a good beer for a beach day. Not overwhelming on the palate. Overall a decent beer.
