1pt can. Pours a cloudy/opaque orange with a one finger, off white head. Fine sediment throughout with mild carbonation rising. Aroma has big notes of pine, orange citrus, resin, and a slight amount of bread and a hint of floral. Taste is a noticeable bitter with bright notes of pine, resin, and orange citrus, with a drawn out resiny/citrusy aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Light resin texture in the mouth with a dryer finish. Overall really good. Lots of pine, resin, and orange citrus. Would but again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden amber color. Frothy white head that quickly dissipates. The nose is fairly heady with pine, mandarin oranges with a touch of biscuit malt. Well balanced, but not overly hoppy IPA with modest bitter in the finish. Definitely not a West coast IPA by any means, but rather a well made, well balanced, enjoyable IPA. As it warms up, a malty sweetness creeps in.
