12oz. can served in a tumbler. Pours a golden orange with a rocky 1.5 inch, buttermilk colored head. Distinct malt presence in the nose, followed by a piney, floral, resinous, citrusy character. Taste is a bit more earthy/herbal than piney with an astringent, slightly medicinal bitterness that lingers between quaffs. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with an assertive, slightly prickly carbonation that leaves a slight residual burn at the back of the throat. Acidity lightly stimulates that salivary glands. Overall, a decent American IPA; perhaps a bit too malty for my general sensibilities, but pretty solid. I bet this beer would make a great cask offering.

Aroma: Hop forward, very floral, also lots of citrus juice. Candied orange slices. Sweet bready malt aroma. Something lightly plasticy is also there. No DMS, No diacetyl.

Appearance: Golden with copper highlights. Some haze. Thin dense white head.

Flavor: Very high bitterness up front, not at all balanced. Another taste, just more bitterness. There is a little bit of hop flavor here some citrus, lots of pine but it is overpowered by bittering hops. Hard to pick out distinct malt flavors.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Lingering bitterness.

Overall: IPA with one-note bitterness. All the hop flavor is overpowered by the level of bitterness. The bittering addition was way too much for me here.
