Nice to get this beer right after seeing it in BA magazine and the Bros. reviewing it too. Got this from my cousin (UHRHAN) who brokered a trade of some NE beers for 2 of my KBS...
12 ounce bottle with a drink by date of September 2011 notched on the label, poured into a pint glass.
A - Nice, hazy orangeish hue. Not a big head, maybe a finger, which dissipated fairly quickly. No lacing to speak of.
S - Lots of pine and some earthy / herbal notes. Definite hop kick in the face which I like. Some citrus notes and slight hint of sweet malts.
T & M - Very smooth and drinkable IPA. Again, big hop character with some sweet malt. Leaves the palate a little dry. Nicely carbonated and alcohol is nicely hidden. Drank it pretty cold and pretty fast so didn't let the alcohol come out too much.
Overall - Nice IPA. My favorite style and this was worthy. Glad I scored a couple bottles of this and looking forward to my next one. Is it a top notch? No. But worth a try.

Consumed directly from can.
A - Can't really tell from the can, but looks to be a pale yellow color.
S - Very floral and earthy, with hemp, dandelion, and a bit of tropical melon.
T - Actually less potent than the scent. First grassy, spicy, hop flavors. Then a wave of malt sweetness followed by a touch of tropical melon and citrus flavors. The finish is fairly dry and bitter.
M - A very lively carbonation lifts up a medium, semi-creamy body.
O - While there is nothing exceptional about this beer, there is also nothing at all outputting about it either. It seems content not to swing for the fences, but still succeeds overall. It is an enjoyable sumertime IPA to have while camping, fishing, or, as the name suggests, watching a baseball game.
