18 day old can

Pours a clear darker orange with a somewhat off-white head. The head leaves lacing and retains well.

Big sweet orange and grapefruit hop aromas. Gets a little floral. Some toffee and caramel like malt hangs in behind those hops.

The bitterness is prevalent yet still makes for a nicely drinkable IPA. Medium body and carbonation. Fairly dry. The citrus fruit from the aroma carries through nicely. Caramel malt backbone. Lots of residual hop flavor lingers on the tongue in the aftertaste.

Great IPA here.
