A - Can dated 6/9/2014 - less than a month old. Took a couple pulls straight from the can then poured the rest into a 10oz tasting glass. Slightly hazy dark gold. Thick white head leaves moderate lacing.

S - Not picking up much. When the can was first popped I got a big dose of earthy hops, but not in the glass I'm getting light malt, and even lighter hops.

T - Makes up for the smell. Not as much hops as I would'v expected even for a "session" IPA. The malt is very powerful. An unobstructed view to the caramel, malty sweetness. Bitterness creeps back in between sips.

M - Best feature of the brew. Drinks like an IPA. Most sessions are too light. This is nicely thick for the style. Medium carb. Lingers on the palate.

O - This is a good not great brew. Worth trying it out.

Poured into a tulip, this one is a crisp and clear gold with a thin film of head.

Smells of dry, toasty caramel with an ambiguous woody hop. A little discouraging.

Tastes of dirty pine hops with a touch of malt that is reminiscent of cheap basement beer. The hops are pleasant enough to make this work.

Feels clean and big with a very complimentary carbonation.

Not the best example of the style, but still extremely drinkable.
