Canned September 18th. Month and a half old.
A: Pours a clear reddish amber. Tall, frothy light tan head. Head fades quite slowly, decent lacing to boot.
S: Nice fresh and sharp hop aroma. Grapefruit and a little tropical fruit too. Some caramel malt?
T: Grapefruit up front. Spicy garlic and pine. A little tropical fruit. Light bready and caramel malt. Decent wave of bitterness in the finish with lingering grapefruit. Quite dry in the aftertaste.
M: Medium bodied and smooth.
O: Nicely balanced IPA. Good hop flavors but not overly bitter. Easy drinking for a hoppy IPA as a result.
Serving type: can

In a teku
A- cream-colored foamy head two fingers thick. Cloudy orange/amber body with residue floating around and no visible carbonation. 4
S- light citrus, lemongrass, grapefruit peel, sweet malt. 4
T- considerably sweet and malty, like oatmeal almost, but then a dose of grapefruit breaks through. I suspect some of the hop aroma and flavor have faded. Tough to know since there's no canned date here. 4
M- medium-bodied, malt-heavy, with a mild, pleasant bitterness. The finish is semi-dry and lingers with both sweet and bitterness. 4
Overall, it's good but I still am not convinced I've ever had this beer fresh enough to be blown away. 4
