Poured a caramel orange murky color with two fingers of khaki white head when I got it. Tons of thick foamy lacing on the sides. Great retention all the way down.
Smelled citrus hops, grapefruit, tangerine, orange, floral hops and sweet caramel. Very good overall.
Tasted similar to the nose. Got bitter grapefruit (citrus) hops, orange, caramel, Cascade hops and floral hops.
Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish.
Just a very good beer. Boise definitely has some good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce can thanks to buckeyeboy. Thanks! Pours a hazed copper with a big white head of foam. Aroma is herbal and citrussy. Smells really nice. Some pine bitterness comes out in the taste and really dries the beer out. The aroma is where this beer really shines.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I really enjoyed this (on tap at Papa Joe’s), lots of hop flavor without the overpowering tartness. Hazy amber with a small creamy head, mild pine bitterness, abrupt finish. Enjoyable and highly drinkable.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked this up for the Co-op in Moscow, Idaho. Great looking label on a 12 oz can. Great hoppy explosion off the top with a smooth following. Dry hoppiness brings up the rear and sticks around for quite sometime. Great ipa. Cheers!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can- Pours hazy orange with over a two finger creamy white head that leaves ice cream float like appearance. Aroma is hops man, spicy hops, pine and citrus dominate the aroma. The taste is bitter up front, resinous piney hops follow and the finish is bitter again. Body is fairly light which doesn’t bother me, carbonation is good. Overall good IPA, very sessionable if it weren’t for the 6.3%.
