From a one pint can.

Aroma is citrus and new mown grass. Pours a deep orange amber with a full foamy beige head. Head lasts a goodly time and lovingly laces the glass. Taste is full on citrus hops , crisply satisfying! Very pleasant aftertastelingerson the palate.

16oz can poured into a pint glass. Pretty unique to see a 4 pack of 16oz cans. Labeling and design of the can are great, including the barcode that resembles the NYC skyline.

A: Hazy with accents of light golden and copper tones. Even with the cloudy nature of the beer, you can see a steady stream of carbonation. A nice 1.5 half finger head that is sticky with interesting stripping on the glass's side (lives up to it's name)!

S: A snap of citrus and piney hops as soon as the can is opened. Intense grapefruit, ester, bread notes with stinky, dank hop notes underneath.

T: A bit sweet at first, but intense hop bitterness follows immediately with an earthy, piney, and tobacco flavor. There's some nice tangerine and pineapple sweetness that temporarily mutes the bitterness. The malt imparts it's own gingerbread type sweetness, but the initial hop bitterness penetrates through the whole sip and lingers on the tongue.

M: Very similar to a grapefruit in that there is some sweet, watery moments but overall there is a bitter, drying effect as well. It all plays out nicely, at times it's a super bitter, full bodied ale that backs off just enough with splashes of lighter bodied freshness and relief.

O: A strong effort from a brewery that has never disappointed, in my opinion. Complex, highly drinkable while maintaining an intensity and full-bodied profile that is memorable. More and more we're finding extremely high quality and challenging beers in cans and this is no exception. Top to bottom, this is a visually pleasing, aromatic, excellent tasting beer.
