12oz can a few weeks old - received as an extra in a trade

A- pours a murky, cloudy reddish mud color - not the best start, but a good head with heavy lacing
S- Citrus hops with a hint of stone fruit sweetness
T- Smooth malt with a kick of hops. Not sure but there is a slightly unusual almost metallic edge to the aftertaste bitterness. Not my favorite
M - decent body, but not noteworthy.

Overall not entirely sold on this. It is good, and I am glad i tried it, but a harshness to the hop profile wasn't my favorite.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz can into a snifter.

Pours a clear deep amber body with a 2 finger whie head that reduces to leave a ring of foam and some blotchy lacing

Smell is hoppy, floral, piney, sitting on a light malt backbone. Upfront I get semisweet caramel and toffee, followed by floral and piney notes finished with a slightly roasty, resinous aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation.

I really liked this one - nothing huge but definitely drinkable and tasty. Wish I had constant access to it!
