12 oz. can imported from Florida to California. Pours a clear deep copper in color and blasts a good dose of hops from the can. Sports a nice iinch of soapy foam cap which shows good retention. Touch of muddled caramel on the nose along with a balanced op character.

Taste is chewy and bright with a pleasant courseness and an everpresent citric hop presence. Touch of ethanol eminates from the glass. Offers a rather complex malt structure/hop mystery. Bit woody in nature. Hop forward yet skillfullly balanced. Actually quite remarkeable and easy on the palate. Not a San Diego IPA by any means but pretty damn solid,.
