12 ounce can poured into an Eau Benite glass. They've got the appearance dialed in; this stuff is unfiltered way past the point of haziness and there's a huge soapy head that throws the lace left and right.

Otherwise... there's some work to be done here. An odd cardboardish aroma overpowers more appropriate smells of leafy and citric hops. The cardboard continues to rear its ugly head as the dominant flavor. Perhaps something went wrong with this particular can; there's a nice pop of bitterness and what seems to be a decent beer somewhere in there, but the off flavor just can't be overlooked. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. I'm inclined to give this a shot another time, perhaps in a bottle or on tap instead.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy dark golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of hops, pine. Taste is very bitter, some pine, unbalanced and not very good. Feels medium bodied and very bitter in the mouth and overall I did not care so much for this beer.

look: 1 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

A: very cloudy, had a tablespoon of sediment in one pour. The rest were less than a teaspoon.
S: a nice piney smell, a little bit stale.
T: light bodied but crisp.
M: a bit over carbonated, however light for an IPA
O: needs a lot of work. The pour was difficult because of the over finished product. The sediment in the bottom was not expected from a craft beer. Really unacceptable.
