12 oz can. Pours a nice deep copper color with a finger and a half of off-white head over top that sits nicely. The beer is as clear as could be, and the carbonation is present as a few bubbles streaming from the bottom. The aroma is light caramel, moderate bready and husky grain, with a mild pine hop in there. The flavor is toasty, light grainy and caramel sweet, with an earthy and almost woodsy hop character that comes towards the end. The bitterness clings on a little into the finish. This is a nice brew. The flavors are in good balance, and the hops don't dominate, though I wouldn't call it an IPA if I made it. Mouthfeel is moderate with a lighter carbonation of very soft bubbles. Drinkability is fantastic on this brew. It packs around 7%, but doesn't show it. I have been savoring the 6 I grabbed at the brewery a while back, and this is my last one. I have been impressed with this brewery. They are not making anything extreme, just beers that are nice to sit down and enjoy.

look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

12 oz can, no date

pours a clear golden color, with bone-white head. very good head retention and a bit of lacing. not much hop aroma for an IPA. not much in the taste either. a bit of malt flavor, and a bit of earthy hop flavor. thin body, medium carbonation.

either this can is pretty old, or it didn't start off great.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Undated can at 35 degrees into imperial pint glass
Aroma of apples
Head large (6 cm), off white, creamy, very slowly diminishing to a 3 mm layer.
Lacing good, many islands and reefs of small to medium bubbles
Body medium orange, hazy
Flavor begins with both bitter and sour overtones; not really sure what I’m tasting. There is no distinct fruit, pine, or flower taste; no alcohol, no diacetyl, no malt. This definitely leaves an unpleasant aftertaste with a very long hang time.
Palate medium, watery, soft carbonation.

This has a very pleasing appearance, aroma, and palate. However, the flavor is pretty bad, making me long for a lot of diacetyl or skunkiness. Definitely a Jekyll and Hyde experience.
