Serving: Can


A:
Pours a ruddy clear copper with a half finger of frothy head that quickly fades to a frothy ring of soft white foam that is easily roused. Little to no retention; confetti specks of lacing. (3.5)

S:
Pungent hop oils. Green hops, medicinal bitterness, cracker malts, funky citrus hints. (3.75)

T:
Dry, bitter cracker flavors. Dry, even bitterness, hard water, sap, herbal hops, astringent resin flavor. (4)

M:
Dry, quick finish with a light-medium body and active carbonation. (4)

O:
Solid IPA.
This is a well-made, evenly hoppy beer that tastes sharp and fresh but is quite drinkable. Generally herbal with a slightly fruity smell and lots of resinous funk. Crisp but slightly sticky with sweet pine a lingering medicinal bitterness.
Will have again; well worth trying. (3.75)

Can label data: none.

Dark gold colored body with a fairly thin head. Pine and citrus hop aroma; honeydew melon and raspberries. Juicy, sweet flavor with a big hop bitterness. Coarse mouthfeel; semi-dry finish.

This beer is big on the hop bitterness but lightweight with the malt flavor balance. Rather rough and unbalanced overall. Should please those looking for a huge hop bitterness taste experience, but otherwise, it's just another IPA beer face in the crowd...
