IPA from a can, oh man. This is a good beer.

I opted for the DFH pint glass here and the ale pours out a crystal clear orange with a copper grapefruit hue. A white two-finger head tops off a good looking beer. Nice lacing.

Tantilizing bouquet: floral and perfumey hops accented by a strong citrus presence. The overall effect of hops and malt is sweet and tangy.

Flavors are nicely balanced with just a slight bent towards the hoppy side. Orange and grapefruit mingle with spicy and floral and it's all about centennial hops. Whatever it's hop makeup, it's tasty.

It's weighty on the palate with a somewhat grainy texture and ample carbonation.

I could drink this regulary, it's damn good and I'm tempted to compare it to Two Hearted Ale. Seriously.

Serving type: can
