A: light yellow, whitish yellow head. Easy pour into a snifter and swirled with very little lacing. Good presentation from a can.

T: I could drink this all day, great tasting beer. Nice to mix in with other aggressive beers and easy to detect florals and hops. Florals are not aggressive and blend well with the profile of this IPA.

S: faint but only the florals really reach the nose. Nice but not the most inviting aspect of this beer.

M: easiest drinking beer I've had in a while as I'm addicted mainly to imperials of this type. A very pleasant surprise.

O: definitely would recommend a four pack of pint cans will run you 9$. Great at night after work. Surly knows what they are doing. That's why I bought the kit for this one.

Serving type: can
