Pint can poured into a Duvel tulip. Big thanks to roon.
Appearance: Dark golden yellow with a nice 1" head that leaves very nice sticky lacing.
Smell: Piney hops with some tropical fruit below.
Taste: Tropical citrus up front but the pine resin from the hops is the dominant flavor on the finish. I would say the pine flavors outweigh the citrus notes overall.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, well carbonated, and the hops leave the palate clean.
Overall: A nice take on a west coat IPA, having the fruit flavors under strong piney hops seems spot on.
Serving type: can

Deep, golden body with a light haze and an incredible off-white head. Head retention is fantastic, as is lacing. Plenty of carbonation keeps fine sediment spinning violently around the glass.
Nice herbal and pine hop notes with a fantastic, sweet caramel malt to provide some balance. The addition of citrus notes make for a very welcoming aroma.
Bitter bite is right up front and is both brutal and smooth. Confused? Yeah, me too. In my opinion, this one sets the bar for what balance should be in an IPA! Plenty of pine hops character here meets a slightly sweet roasted caramel.
Super smooth medium bodied IPA. Plenty of carbonation. Semi-dry and clean finish.
Fantastic and very easy to approach IPA. Overrated, this is not - grab it.. even if you're not an IPA fan - this might convert you!
