Canned last week. Served from a pint can into a Crooked Stave tulip.

Appearance- Golden/orange with nice one finger head that left some real nice lacing.

Smell- Spruce, orange peel, grapefruit, fresh cut grass, spicey pepper. Slight booze tinge, but nice citrus and herbaceous.

Taste- Pine, grapferuit, sweet oakyness, again slight booze.

Mouthfeel- Medium carbonation with medium body. Nice resinous feel though.

Overall- Another great pale from Marshall Wharf. They do hoppy beers well, but too pricey in the cans.

Serving type: can

Canned 6/17

A: Pours a golden yellow color with a fingers worth of head that settles down to a nice little cap for the entirety of the can

S: The sorachi ace hops pop the most, giving off some nice lemon peel and lemongrass notes. Following that is a bit of crackery maltiness and some citrusy hops

T: Starts off with that same lemon peel and lemongrass hoppiness from the sorachi ace. This is accompanied by the crackery malts right alongside. The citra hops sneak in towards the end, leaving a nice citrusy hop note in the finish along with some bitterness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A nice, well-balanced APA with a decent amount of hoppiness to go along with the malts. Very easy to drink at 6.3% (that's what is on the can for the abv), and not too difficult to get fresh, as they can a 200 gallon batch every week. A solid new addition to MW cans, replacing Can't Dog for the time being (or at least, so I've heard)

Serving type: can

Dry-hopped Firkin at the Anniversary festival.

Light fizzy head, hazy golden tan orange color.

Nose has some fresh resin, grassy hops, little citrus and tropical fruit, fairly floral though too.

Taste has more fresh hops, grassy and floral, some citrus with tropical fruits, papaya and nectarine strike me, a light sweet reddish malt, fairly bitter, and quite resinous with a light hop oil.

Mouth is med bodied, decent carb for firkin, little oily.

Overall pretty good, nice hops, quite fresh tasting, light malty base, pretty close to the original beer but with fresh hops and oily resins added mostly.

Serving type: cask
