12 ounce bottle -> Sam Adams Perfect Pint.

This beer pours up an amazing clear deep gold with a very fluffy off white two finger head. Retention was unbelievable. I sipped this one and even an hour later there was still a visible head. Lacing rings stuck to the glass in beautiful ringlets. Nose is citrus, earthy pine, and resin. Taste is a powerful malt well balanced with a wonderful citrus hoppiness to finish. Mouthfeel is amazing with just the right amount of carbonation. This one needs to be sought out if you have never had it before.

12 oz can from jungle jims Fairfield, poured into snifter.

Appearance- aggressively pours light apricot with a thick off-white foam head, lacing is all over this glass. 4.25

Aroma-citrus fruits, mostly orange and grapefruit, pine sap, a little brown sugar, great smell. 4.25

Taste- very piney, grapefruit is there, I'm getting maple syrup too, creamy orange sherbet. 4.25

Feel-light in feel, average hop bitterness, cleanses but leaves your mouth dry, I thought it would be more watery but its not. 4

Overall-take the time to pour this in a glass instead of drinking out of the can and you will be rewarded with a fresh tasting woodsy IPA. Quite refreshing and easy drinking. Price on this is cheaper then most craft IPA's of this caliber and cans are a dollar cheaper for the same amount of beer then the bottle version. 4.25

12oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A - a nice coppery color. Lacing was light, white, a a touch foamy.

S - classic ipa. Citruis, grapefruit, little grass in there.

T - really nice hop/malt balance. The sweetness is there but kept at bay, and you get tht nice bite from the hops but its not unpleasantly piney like a new Sierra Nevada Pale is

M - best part of this beer. Substantial without getting heavy, piney, or syrupy. Finishes amazingly clean. Definitely easy to session this beer.

O - a great example of an American IPA. I got this as a single in a craft beer six pack mix and plan on looking for more of it.
