4.23/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

12oz can poured into a dogfish head IPA glass.

A: Copper color, good clarity. Fine-bubbled rocky white head. Sticky rings and clumps of lacing cling stubbornly to the glass.

S: Pine and earthy resinous hops are strong on the nose. Sticky bud. Some underlying whiffs of tangerine, kiwi strawberry, and passion fruit. Unmistakable herbal/lemony centennial too. Toasted biscuit malt.

T: Earthy and piney up front. Sweet bud. Kiwi, passion fruit, tangerine, and melon. Big oily and herbal bite. Good clamp of bitterness. Toasty malt base. Plenty of oily and herbal bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium bodied. Thinly creamy and slick with hop oils. Crisp bite of carbonation adds a nice refreshing touch. Gritty astringency.

O: A very solid IPA. A good balance of hop flavor vs hop bitterness. Plenty to keep even a rampant hophead busy. Cans do wonders for it.

3.79/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange with a foamy off-white head on top. Nice head retention, with sheets of lacing down the glass.

S: Some nice pine mixed with a little bit of floral hops. Faint grapefruit and orange rind. A bit of biscuity malt.

T: Nice citrus up front, some apricot and a bit of pineapple mixed with some pine. Definitely flowery, like the name implies.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Bitter finish.

O: Pretty solid IPA from CBC, would expect nothing less.
