[Best served in a Shaker glass]
The pour was a clear medium golden amber with some yellow highlights and a large off white rocky head that lasted throughout and had excellent sticky lacing.
The aroma was of straw malts, floral and pine hops and a earthy moldy yeast and had hints of citrus (grapefruit) and honey.
The taste was a nice bitter sweet with a mild hint of honey early on, but quickly became extremely hoppy and heavily bitter with an extra large dose of citrus at the end. The flavor stuck around for a very long time with the hoppy flavor left to linger for an good long time.
Mouthfeel was just beyond light on body and had an extra dry texture with a nice strong lively carbonation.
Overall a superbly hopped up brew: Nuff Said...

Poured from a 12 oz can (gasp) into a tulip.
A - Deep amber with about a finger of creamy light tan head. Sporadic lacing down the glass.
S - Floral and citrusy hops. I thought it would be a little more in your face (or nose), though.
T - Bitter earthy hops, but well balanced and a bright finish.
M - Full bodied up front but finishes clean and dry like an IPA should.
O - Whereas some west coast IPAs go for nothing but hop flavor and aroma, this is really well balanced while still maintaining the signature floral hop notes.

355ml bottle. Shaker glass. Orangish amber color headed by white & wide crown. Piney, citric –orange & grapefruit- aromas, slight caramel malt & floral notes. Bitter upfront yields to a gentle sweet toasted flavor. Medium body. Moderate to soft carbonation. Honey hues in the middle are swept out by hoppiness that lingers into an extended bitter finish.
