UPDATED: JAN 22, 2018 Can thanks to Russell. Hoppy overall.Light red pepper. Slept on it and tried another can. Don't like the dominant hop. No red pepper today. brian.b (22) - - OCT 7, 2017
Overall it’s a pretty good IPA. It’s got a smooth malty backbone with citrus hops and a hint of dry pine. Solid IPA, but not in the upper tier of top-notch IPAs.

4/25/2017 (16 fl oz can): Aroma is bright and hoppy with fresh citrus zest (lemon, lime, tangerine) and undertones of grass and pine; pours a hazy light golden yellow color with a head of mottled off-white foam; flavor is lively and balanced, lots of hoppiness (citrus - orange pith, grapefruit and lemon zest, PINE) with a good level of supporting maltiness (light caramel, hint of honey) that still allows the hops to come across on top; good pine resin through the lingering bitter finish; medium body, calm cask-like mouthfeel; very, very good IPA, great hop combination, solid if not slightly aggressive bitterness, REALLY enjoyable. nimbleprop (9148) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 17, 2017
Sampled at CBC, pours a mostly clear orange with some cloudy, white head. Nose is candy, orange, tangerine, a little soap. Flavor falls off a little, tangerine, orange, candy, mango, but nothing truly shines. Finishes oily too. DrunkSanta410 (993) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 22, 2017
Can at home. Thanks Jeff. Lightly hazy copper pour, white head. Aroma is earthy, lightly floral, lots of caramel malts. Taste is piney, bitter, malt forward with lots of toast and caramel. Lingering medicinal bitterness. High carbonation. Ok.

Keg at the brewpub, 8/11/16. Hazy orange, thin creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of tropical fruit, pale malt, mild toastiness. The taste is bitter citrus, tropical hops, pale malt. Medium bodied. JaBier (8570) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2016
Sample at Ohio Taproom on 10/29/16. Pours clear gold to amber with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, spicy hops and grapefruit. Malty flavor with spicy hops before a piney hop finish. jaymtee (37) - Georgia, USA - SEP 12, 2016
On tap at Texas Roadhouse. Very understated and well balanced IPA. Pours a light copper with a thin but lasting head. Low on hops aroma but we’ll balanced on how and malt taste. Definitely a sleeper at 7.2% ClarkVV (7294) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 8, 2016

After the disastrous session IPA of theirs I had, full of wort and such, I wasn’t too psyched for this 4.25 month old beer. It seemed highly unlikely this could be good. Thankfully, the pour shows a good, off-white head, with low retention atop a very hazy, golden-peach body.
The nose has that odd, almost roasted malt-meets-caramel-meets-wort note, but you can still sense some of the pine and grapefruit, while there’s a good fruitiness and also a solid malt backbone of honey and light caramel. No alcohol, resin or flaw.
Even better in the flavor, and actually quite shockingly nice for its age. Big fruit and juice flavors mix with light caramel, spicy orange rind and even light watermelon. Near-perfect attenuation, with an ultra-soft maltiness, fine carbonation and great balance overall. Don’t know if the pine and resin was ever there (assume the pine was), but this is just wonderful now. It’s certainly fun to drink older IPAs, because you really see how well brewed it is, not just how well-hopped. Makes me rethink my rating of their session IPA, which I’m now going to go delete. Would love to try some fresh stuff from these guys.
Can in Seattle. Thanks Pruf! Cloudy, bright orange with soapy thick foam. Pale citrus hop, not so fresh, plenty of malt bittering throughout. Fruity bittering, not harsh. Full body. Earthy, a bit unfresh with hops unfortunately. Not my favorite profile as is.
