im a sucker for IPAs in cans. 12oz can drank from my sierra nevada hop tulip glass.
A- a hearty pour yields a deep copper body with a high level of clarity. a bright white head forms on top and sticks around for a while. when it finally falls, small rings of lacing are left behind.
S- the nose on this one is all about the hops. tons of floral and grapefruit. a lesser amount of pine. some orange and lemon can be picked out as well. after i make it through all that, i pick up some caramel malt which adds a mild sweetness to this beer.
T- the taste starts out with more of the caramel malt that i could smell, which acts as a sweet malty backbone. after that it quickly becomes all about the hops. floral and grapefruit shine through the strongest. there is a lesser amount of pine and other fruits such as lemon zest and orange peel.
M- the body is a solid medium and the carbonation is done just right. nice and bitter. leaves my mouth feeling dry and begging for more.
O- this is a very solid IPA, and the fact that its in a can makes it that much more appealing. this one will probably be joining my regular rotation.

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.
