look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 ounce can poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a mostly clear copper color with a 3 finger head and excellent lacing.

S: Citrus and pine hops, malt, alcohol, and also the aroma of tea. There's something about the smell that I don't quite like...maybe the tea smell.

T: Fairly heavy malt flavors but with enough hops to balance it out. Nice bitterness in the finish. Somewhat piney flavor.

M: Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation. A little lighter than my ideal IPA but very easy to drink.

O: Overall, this is a very drinkable IPA. Nice balance and good flavor. Lighter than my usual IPA's and the smell leaves something to be desired. A good option for when bottles won't work.

Serving type: can

Mixed and matched this can yet like others I am not sure how old it is.

A - Well I got little to no yeast particles so I assume it can't be more than 3 months old. Color is a hazy amber brown with a 1/4 inch of sticky white head that stays around for a while.

S - Smell is mostly subdued but has a nice edge of grapefruit hops. Really nothing beyond that and not really strong either.

T - Well it's not bad the grapefruit taste is juicy enough without being bitter or cloying and balancing sweet cracker malts seem to give it a great finish. Quite tasty,

M - Despite the sessionable ABV it seems a tad medium in body yet still tasty.

Overall this beer seems pretty good probably great fresh. Not terrible old though.
