Thanks to grassrootsVT for this treat. And thanks to the chain of beer traders who put this gem in his hands originally.

Appearance: Poured from a 16 oz can into a Sam Smith pint glass. The can design is cool, contemporary and bold. The color is deep copper with subtle orange edging. Clear with tight carbonation that renders a thick finger-thick head that settles into a persistent cover. Very little lacing. Some sediment in the bottom of the glass; clear but not completely free of extras, which is ok.

Aroma: Beautiful nose. Good resinous, piney, tart aromas with some additional fruity hopping - is that Nelson? There's some slight pineapple and grapefruit underneath that provide a nice transition between the high notes of the big American hops with a solid malt base.

Taste: Malt up front with sweet fruit notes dominant - pear, grapefruit. Moves to bolder pine flavor in the middle, but keeping that solid maltiness throughout. Finishes dry and bitter, crisp and fresh - Aftertaste lingers and grows into more pronounced bitterness.

Mouth: Leaves your mouth dry but with a somewhat coated feeling. There's a thickness to this beer, from the head down to the last swallow, but it comes through as clean and not as too much alcohol. Full flavor matched by a full body. This is somewhere between a single and double IPA.

Notes/Drinkabilty: I dig the 16 oz can. It provides just enough MORE beer without offering up too much to finish. The can also makes the simple fact of acquiring and drinking this beer a bit easier, so a plus for drinkability. For the moderate to serious hop heads this should suffice and provide enough juice to tempt more tastes. I am not one of those types and I'd still love to have a few more.
