12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours cloudy orange amber color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, orange rind, tangerine, pineapple, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with bright hop notes and a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, orange rind, pineapple, floral, grass, light pine, bread, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Moderate earthy floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, citrus rind, pineapple, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly crisp and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around nice hop flavor balance and complexity with moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

From 12 oz can to pint glass

A: Copper-tan in color, clear, forms a tight bubbly head that never fully recedes.

S: Floral hops at the front of the nose, earthy. Smells like iced tea mixed with cooked corn and wheat bread. Weird.

T: Astringent, bitter hops at the front. Not piny or citrusy, but earthy, muddled and strangely bitter. Floral-edged hop-profiles often hit of tea, but this might as well have been mixed with ice tea...and not in a good way. Toffee-sweetness is distinct, but doesn't really balance the astringent aspects. Finishes the way it began, bitter, with the different flavor tones all over the place.

M: Medium-bodied, appropriately carbonated for the style.

Possibly the worst modern IPA's I've tasted. Instead of complimenting and harmonizing with each other, the flavors diverge, and individually these, bitter, sweet and bready notes taste terrible. Weird, tea-like nose. Maybe the idea was a Northwest, floral-type IPA, but this tastes like a homebrew gone awry. Try again.

12oz can poured into a pint glass. No canning dates or codes or whatnot that I can find.

Pours a nice coppery color, clear, with a large, fluffy beige head which leaves big clumpy lacing. Not a whole lot of active carbonation. Very pretty. Smell is piney, grassy, a little bit floral. I'd say mostly grassy. Oddly, I think I get a hint of mint.

Taste is nicely balanced. Again, strangely, a little mint suggestion, a bit stronger than the aroma. Very piney bitter, slight caramel sweetness. This is a tasty beer.

Mouthfeel is a little oily, a little creamy. Overall, I'm pretty darn happy with this beer.
