poured into the commemorative deschute's snifter.

A- amber with brown hues reminiscent of cherry juice. oh, it's in a can. why the can?

S- oh my. the dry-hopping is ever present. not over-powering, just fresh. first thoughts involve opening a new bag of Hallertau (or some noble variety) hops and breathing deep (i am momentarily perplexed by the images in my mind vs the reality that is in my hand). freshness like you wouldn't believe. i don't detect any of cascade's piney or citrusy notes; kudos for not using the old standby.

T- the nose follows closely onto the palate. hallertau hops through and through. citrusy and earth notes follow. mild lingering bitterness, closer to a hoppy pale ale than an IPA. well-balanced, but not for those seeking higher IBUs.

M- coats well. carbonation is very present and tingles on the edge of the tongue, but doesn't agitate the throat. if there was a drawback, it'd be the all-too-present carbonation.

D- with very little alcohol bite, and moderate bitterness, it's easy to have two or three before the ABV sneaks up like a process server with divorce papers.

i'd be interested to try this on tap to see what (if any) influence the can has..
