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.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.
Look: A lovely clear copper color. The head is foamy and chunky and recedes to a white film. Lacing is wide bands of foam on the glass.
Aroma: Faint sweet caramel? Then bitter grapefruit rind, hops.
Taste: Subtle malts come out offering a strangely welcome balance, while the citrus rinds and piny, bitter hops soon cover up any thought of hops.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, slightly sticky.
Overall: Kind of all over the place, rating wise but a solid IPA from Twisted Pine.

I picked this up as part of the sampler crate pack, enjoyed chilled in a pils glass, shared with tenderbranson69.
The color is light amber like honey with mild haze and very small head with tiny bead, speckles of lace stick. The smell is lemony and citrus dominant with light sweet malt ester. The feel is okay with moderate carbonation and bitterness with balance of hops and malt and mostly dry in the finish with low alcohol influence.
The taste is good with a decent amount of hop flavor but a little mild for an IPA, mostly lemon zest and citrus flavors from the hops with a mild malt sweetness with subtle caramel flavor. Overall this is not bad, but in a market saturated with the style this is a pretty forgettable example. I would drink this again, but it is not worth seeking out.
