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.

Poured into a pint glass.

A - Dark amber color, two finger foam white head. Great lacing. It felt as if it stayed on the glass for ages

S - The aroma of hops almost knocked me back. Great smelling beer. Very hoppy smell with a hint of malt towards the end. I got a lot of pine smell out of it with a little bit of citrus. Very piney smell overall.

T- Excellent taste, bitter and quite sweet. Signs of malt but again, the presence of pine was overwhelming. Fantastic finish as well.

M - A little bubbly and medium body I would say. Not extremely heavy.

O - Wonderful beer. Honestly, I was blown away. This is one of the best IPA's I have had the pleasure of trying. Will definitely get this beer again.
