Served this16 oz. can in a S.N. hops glass. Best by 16 Jun2012. The body was golden honey with a brittle white head. Thin lacing remained in the glass.

The smell was pine. Some hard candy and hints of sour rag.

The taste was mildly spicy hops and gentle bitterness. Modestly sweet. Finishes dry and grassy. Quite drinkable.

The mouthfeel was thinner than expected. There was a softness in the mouth. Adequately carbonated.

16oz can poured into a pint glass
Best before: 16 June 2012

Thanks to tsauce2 for the extra.

A: Pours a hazy amber orange with 1.5 fingers width of light khaki colored head which takes a good amount of time to dissipate down and leaves a nice degree of lacing.  

S: Malt forward with caramel and sweetbread, a bit of resins hops and some citrus in the way of orange.  Pleasant aroma but could be more hop forward.  

T: Hops are immediately more prevalent on the tongue than the nose.  Mostly a big piney bitterness, with some grapefruit.  A soapy characteristic, resiny, and a bit of lemon zest.  Malt backbone is minimal, and not much citrus characters.  Pretty one dimensional in the way of a big bitter hop bomb (I would have guess a higher IBU), but being a hophead that draws no complaints here.  

M/D: Relatively smooth, appropriately carbonated, medium bodied.  Drinkability is pretty good considering the bitterness factor.  

O: Overall, a pretty enjoyable beer.  With so many great IPAs being readily available, I don't think this is one I would seek out, but I certainly won't turn one down if offered.

Poured from a 16 oz. can dated best by 11/17 2011 into a SA perfect pint glass..

Beer poured a murky copper orange with about 1/2" of slightly off white head that faded very quickly but left a small lace ring around the top of the glass.

Smell is standard American IPA fare with citrus and pine, but I detect some spices that I don't usually get in an IPA. Nutmeg and cereal malts, almost like a fall beer.

The taste is very ordinary for me, but a bit above average for the originality. Lots of sweet hops, but almost no bitterness at all. A heavy malt presence with a bunch of those spices that I smelled in the bouquet. Almost makes me think of a rye flavor with a slightly dry, bitter quality at the end.

Mouthfeel is good. Sticky with a solid body and good carbonation. Oily and slick on the back of the tongue.

Overall this is a pretty good beer that I can't get regularly in my area. I would buy it again to revisit sometime in the future, but not on a regular basis as there are better IPAs available to me.
