12 fl oz. can with no apparent canned on date present. Interesting that this beer is also packaged in bottles, as I have only seen the cans available here in Illinois. My fifth review of a beer coming from a can!
Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.
A - Pours a beautiful cloudy burnt sienna orange color with a finger of doughy off-white head. Very appealing scattered lacing.
S - Can smell it from a distance. Juicy citrus grapefruit / orange hops, and a healthy dose of pine.
T - Lightly bitter / fruity hops and sweet bready malts in the foreground. Nicely balanced, to be sure, although I would have thought it would have been more bitter judging by the smell. Sweet tea leaf taste in the finish. Very nice light bodied feel and wonderful balance. Extremely tasty.
M - Some sticky hop resins lingering, but all in all, a smooth, clean, creamy feel. More bitterness present in the aftertaste, than when I was drinking it almost.
Overall, a delicious beer, my first offering from Anderson Valley Brewing Co., definitely looking forward to trying more. Highly drinkable stuff, with a nice 7.00% abv that isn't noticeable at all. I would be interested in having this beer from the bottle also, and seeing how it differs from the canned version, if at all. Regardless, it's a beer I will definitely try again.

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.
