Saw one of these new cans and had to give it a go. I have enjoyed this one before....
Julian dating code on the side (damn missed that in the store!), May 4, 2011, poured into a tulip.
A: Big plume of an off white head that mushrooms up over the edge of the glass and holds on like a brick. It is amber in color with good clarity. The head slowly fades and leaves behind some clumps of lacing.
S: Notes of pine needles and grapefruit, and apricots waft from the tulip. There is a solid malt backbone evident as well, reminiscent of some sticky caramel. No hint of the alcohol.
T: The hops are muted, this can is a bit past its' prime for sure. It is still good though, with a healthy malt back bone full of toasted bread, and caramel. It finishes with a moderate dose of bittering hops semi dry.
M: Ok mouthfeel, nothing spectacular. Medium bodied and moderately carbonated.
O: Next time I will be sure to inspect the dates more seriously. This probably would have been much better a month ago. Cheers!

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.
