$2.75 tall boy can from Abe's.
Light orange hazy body, a dull finish. Topped by four fingers of snow white rocky foam made up of bubbles of all sizes. Very good lacing.
Aroma of apricot and orange, put followed by an off putting whiff of cleanser, which blunts all else.
The whole taste hits at once. Hugely bitter and not in a good way, mixed with a touch of cleanser, any sweetness and fruit is nuked away. Very one dimensional.
I love bitter and abrasive in an IPA, but this doesn't work at all for me. Not recommended.

Appearance – This one has a big, white head, too foamy actually, with a thin, light orange, weak=-ooking body.
Smell – It’s pine alright and little else.
Taste – It’s namesake resiny pine is there but no malt whatsever. This beer is very one-dimensional.
Mouthfeel – This is a little better than light-bodied with some mild bitterness.
Dirnkability – Not a bad ale but nothing of substance.

On tap at Acme Bar and Pizza in Rochester, NY.
Pours a clear amber, with a half inch head and not much lacing.
Smells piney, without any other real discernible aromas.
The tastes include pine and other earthy hop flavors, some toasted bready malt flavors, and a bit of an alcohol sting, which is weird considering the 6% ABV.
Medium bodied, crisp mouthfeel, less than drinkable to the aforementioned alcohol sting.
Not one of the better IPAs I've had. Pass.

16 ounce "tall hoppy can"
A fairly elegant one inch head is lifted above its hazed dull golden amber liquid. Slowly the head goes to a thicker film and nice looking ringed low sheeting and fields of super fine lace.
Faint and delicate pine hop nose.
Biggest problem here is the thinness of the flavor and lack of body. Very lightly hopped for an "IPA" and not much of a malt presence to boot. Pleasant enough but this drinks more like an IPA "light" then anything else.
