This is a very tasty west coast type IPA, I found it a very tasty beer. I enjoyed using the can for beer can chicken and unless I can find this beer on tap I will only use it when making a very hoppy beer can chicken and drink the left over of the 4 pack.
The appearance was first rate with a nice lacing when poured from the can into a glass.
The smell had a significant hoppyness and was as flowery as one would expect from a Great Douple IPA, however great IPAs are not from a can.
The taste was full and hppy and was as good as one would expect from a beer from a can.
I rate this beer a 5 in all catogories exept overall as it is in a can.
No amount of plastic lining in a can can compensate for a bottled beer.
I really want to like this beer and the brewery, but I can get as good or better beers in glass. I know cans are better for recycling, but anything is better in glass then cans. I would pay more for glass then cans, and craft beer is best in a bottle or a keg. NEVER a can.
Serving type: can
