12 oz can poured into a snifter. "Canned on FEB 25, 2013 CHEERS!" Stamped on the bottom (just over 3 weeks old!)

Pours out a nice glowing orange color with a cloudy appearance as well as a good bit of fine sediment. Big soapy 2 fingers of white head off the pour, fades to a retentive layer leaving lots of sticky lace.

At first I get some citrus, hop resins, as it warm a bit of pine comes out as well as some candied malt, hints of grain

Definatly a balanced IPA. Some grapefruit citrus mixes with a bit of woody pine, sweet caramel malt, candied orange, hop resins comes in in the middle, hints of tropical fruits, then the citrus/ pine finishes it out. Bitter, but not as bitter as most are and although it does linger, again not as much as most IPAs, which is neither good nor bad.

Smooth and definatly drinkable, kind of a lighter lower carbonation. Medium bodied.

A stand up IPA, definatly more east coast in style. Look forward to try the different variations of this beer.
