12oz can, canned 10/11/2013, poured into an unlabeled snifter today, 10/24/2013, after dinner. Thanks R.J. for sending a sixer of this my way.

Pours a hazy, though with some good clarity, orange body with a nice fluffy 2cm white head that retains quite well. Leaves tons of leafy lacing all over the glass as it recedes, and as it makes its way into my liver. Great looking IPA.

Faint pine oils, earthiness and floral notes round out the nose. Balanced out quite a bit by a solidly bready, honey'd up, crackery malt backbone. Not the most hoppy smelling beer, but a nicely balanced one.

Tastes smooth, with a good sweet earthiness and crackery pale maltiness, balanced out by a nice floral bitterness at the end. Not explosively hoppy, but pleasantly so. Somehow the floral hops complement the malt very well rather than taking over the flavour on its own. Good balance.

Medium bodied, great carbonation, resinous and spreads the hop love all around. Bitterness is very floral and pleasant. Yet this is somewhere in between in terms of how easy it is to drink.. the floral notes on the aftertaste make this interesting but not amazing. Minimal hint of ABV.

Overall, an interesting IPA that delivers a nice piney, floral bitterness. Wouldn't take this over Two-Hearted or even Flower Power which I just had recently.
