look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I had this out of can poured into a pint glass.

A - Pours a lightly hazed amber copper color with a 2 finger white frothy head. Some nice sticky lacing left around the glass, looks like Bengal stripes (no pun intended).

S - Hoppy, as expected with an IPA, citrus fruits with earthy undertones. Some sweet malty nose going on in there as well. Crisp smell, as if the scent of the beer carries a sharpness to it, I like it!

T - Hop flavor right off the bat. This has a wonderful citrus floral hop profile with a mild bitterness flavor at the end. Crisp clean taste that is subtle yet packed with the right amount of balance.

M - Rather on the light side with mild carbonation. Flavor stays with your toungue for a while - not a bad thing.

O - This is a nice beer for any weather and any event. I like this a lot and will definatly be picking more of it up.
