4.4/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

16 oz can, canned on 10/04/12, poured into a pint glass. Major thanks to Brian for the hookup with this.

A- Pours a clear golden amber color topped with a finger of creamy white head, nice retention and thick sheets of lacing.

S- Juicy hops, lots of citrus and fruity orange aroma, also some pine and freshly-cut grass. Caramel malt lingers in the background but this is definitely all about the hops.

T- Huge rush of hop flavor with grapefruit and lemon rind, lots of pine resin and a bit of dank earthiness. The malt is also very assertive, with bold caramel flavors and a nice bready texture. Bitterness is persistent throughout and builds on itself.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth feel, oily hop resin feel, dry towards the finish.

O- An awesome, juicy, and very bitter IPA. The hop flavors are really great and are balanced really nicely by the malt; as bitter as this is I could definitely drink a few of these in a sitting. Great stuff.
