3.83/5 rDev +0.8%
Poured chilled in flared glass
A: dark amber color, full-bloom head; good, consistent carbonation, very nice lacing
S: bready and malty, but not strong
T: nice synthesis of hops and malt; rose and bright grapefruit notes; very flavorful, well-balanced, clean finish, good malt backbone
very good, solid IPA, with great sedative potential

A) poured from a can into glassware this brew is a standard pale ale color that skews just a bit to the darker side. Nice half finger head with good retention and beautiful bubbles streaming up
S) a pretty tame nose that has hints of sweet malt, a bit of grass and herbal notes, and a pleasant melon like aroma
T) toasty malt with a nice sweetness that is countered by the hops which are quite earthy with hints of spice and citrus rind
M) really drinkable, nice carbonation although a little on the thin side - quite nice
O) a good pale ale that is a little unusual in a good way with its darker malt flavors and earthy hops

Pours a nice golden blonde color with a frothy head into my glass.
A light touch of hops followed by buttery malt, make up the aromas in the nose here. Seems pretty straightforward.
Lots of malt with surprisingly little hops. It has a metallic taste, though I'm not sure if that's the beer itself or the can. Couldn't be the latter.
Ditto for mouthfeel. Kind of bland.
Not bad. I wouldn't pay $10.99 for a six pack though.
