Pours a clear golden orange with a thin white head. Leaves nice lacing.
Smells much piney citrus hops with sweet floral aroma.
T- A nice balance of piney citrus with a crisp flowery bite.
F- Nice slight bitter finish that resonates for a time. A refreshing crisp finish makes very drinkable.
O- I really like this half acre. The store is a blast!

From a tallboy can into a nonic pint. No date on the can that I can tell.

Wonderfully frothy, creamy pale white head that forms into the shape of an ice cream scoop in the glass. The body is cloudy golden with a wheat like haze.

Very appealing nose, sweet floral and citrus blend with a resinous underbelly.

Not quite as robust in personality as the nose, there's a light lemony touch and a crackery finish with similar resinous bite all along. 4

Very light feeling in the body, it's got refreshing drinkability definitely. The finish is mildly bitter and lingers a tad, but otherwise this beer can be pounded. I'd probably drink straight from the can from here on out. 4.25

Good stuff.

2/5/15 Finley Dunnes (Draft) - Really enjoyed the taste of this IPA. Somewhat strong, but not overpowering, the beer went down easy and smooth. I liked the distinct taste, and will definitely order down the road.

Live review:
No freshness date on can.
Poured in a DFH IPA glass.

A (4.25) - Light and somewhat murky amber in color with at least two fingers worth of egg shell white, fluffy head. Lots of tiny visible floaters suspended in the glass. Moderate lacing left behind.

S (4.25) - Aroma of tropical and citrus fruit immediately hits my nose. Subsequent smells give way to pine resin, sweet and mildly toasted and cracker-like malts, and a dash of cracked black pepper.

T (4.0) - While I expected a heavy dose of hops here, the taste is quite balanced. Piney, grassy, and lightly fruity hops come side-by-side with toasted and cracker-like malts. Definitely get some peppery undertones as well. Pretty mild bitterness hits up front, but doesn't linger for too long.

M (4.25) - Pretty smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and moderate carbonation that fits right in with the style. Fairly dry finish.

O (4.25) - Definitely glad to have the opportunity to try this, thanks to the always generous CuriousMonk. The high drinkability is easily the highlight of this beer, and while the flavor might not blow you away, it's no slouch either. Very well balanced and one I'd certainly drink again if given the chance.
