Poured from a 16oz can.

A: Golden amber in appearance, darker than most IPAs I drink. Thin white head, nice retention.

S: Really bright citrus notes, sweet malt. Not the strongest aroma.

T: Sharp light citrus dominates the beginning at of the taste, balanced by a sweet bready maltiness. Bitterness is on the lighter side.

M: Great mouthfeel for an IPA, crisp and refreshing.

O: I loved this IPA! Definitely competes with a lot of the west coast IPAs with its strong floral and citrus flavors, low bitterness and refreshing qualities.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a dark red orange with a small fluffy white head. Smells of flowery and citrus hops, very nice aroma. Tastes of citrus hops with a nice afterbite, with a hint of light grain. Beer is heavily carbonated, medium bodied, dangerously sessionable. Overall a superb beer.

Rusty copper red in color with a heavy chill haze that clarifies as this warms. Poured with a billowy off-white foam that slowly reduced to a thick frothy cap that leaves soapy, sticky lacings on the glass. Slightly pungent citrus grapefruit and pineapple aromas with floral notes over the top and pine hop bitterness beneath. Aromas are undeniably hop forward, however sweet caramel aromas. On the thinner side of medium bodied with a slick oily feel up front until tangy carbonation rolls through the middle. Fresh grapefruit and citrus flavors up front and through the middle that transition to pleasant pine hop bitterness to the finish. Sweet malty backbone throughout. Finishes semi-dry with citrus grapefruit notes followed by light pine hop bitterness.

Can from trade from an awesome trader. Dates 9-24-13 poured 11-5-13. Should be fresh enough. Pours a deep dark copper red color with a half finger creamy, off white head. Aroma of toffee, biscuits, pine, citrus. Was expecting more hop profile here. Up front big time bitter, grass, pine, big time bready, toffee malts. Dry on the palate, clean finish. Medium carbonation, slightly slick, but mostly dry. This comes off more as an APA than an IPA to me given the big malt presence. Good brew nonetheless.
