16oz aluminum can. Pours light golden color. Barely opaque and nearly clear. 2 full fingers of head that lingers. Aromas of pine and exotic tropical fruit like melon or mango. Maybe lemon. Crisp and light in the mouth with the IPA bite that is strong at first but dissipates quickly. Quite nice. After taste is pine and fruit. Pine lingers on the tongue. Excellent IPA.

Aces and Ales LV Pizza Port tap takeover.

Clear light golden white head decent retention. A bit of pininess in the nose leading to fairly resiny finish . Pretty light mouthfeel. OK tho not my favoite PP IPa.
