Amber pour, half finger white head with good retention and lacing.

Unique smell. Almost like a rainy flower garden. There's a touch of spiciness in there somewhere too, that evokes strong comparisons to calendula in my mind. It just so happens I grew up playing in my mom's garden and loved eating calendula, so I take that as a good thing. There's some juicy tropical fruits hiding behind this front.

Quite tasty. Not as pronounced or distinct as the nose might lead you to believe. Just enough sweet backbone to support the floral and spicey hops. Spicey bitterness slips for a split second into alcohol before righting the ship and reasserting itself as smoothe and drinkable. Finish is bitter and a bit bready.

Crisp and drinkable, as they tend to be. I look down and all of a sudden my glass is almost empty. Nice sweet/bitter lingering. Would love to try it on tap.

Accessible IIPA or Double IPA. Claims "Amarillo Extract," which seems to smooth out broad hopfullness. Lovely can. Delicious beer.
