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.

Can from Proof Bottle Shop. I had this beer directly from the can while a t the pool earlier today. Aroma was sweeter than Jai Alai in the way of more mango and pineapple. Aroma was also a touch of pine and earthy grassiness. Taste was sweet tropical fruits, only slightly bitter hops, and lightly roasted malt. Well carbonated and good body to this beer. I should have bought the full 6 pack.

32 oz. growler filled at Vista bev., South Salem, NY
Pours near clear, slightly ligher then almond amber. Nice fine head, leaves a delicate collar, tiny bubble film and super fine sheets of lacing. Nice lookin'...
Muted nose with some grainy hops
Decent butt really nothing special kinda AIPA.
More grainy/resiny hops in the forefront. Hoppy with nearly enough malt to reflect some balance. Not overy impressed. The look of this one was the highlight, and thats not a good sign.

Clear apricot colored with a thick and dimpled rocky off-white head that lingers long. Inviting aroma of bright tangerine and pine. Taste fairly matches the nose, very fresh citrus flavor, tangerine and pine, some ruby grapefruit and orange rind. Some subtle malt flavors ride beneath, but the hops are front and center on this one. Firm bitterness. Full and round mouthfeel. Very tasty beer.
