Pours a clear red/orange with a nice fluffy white head.
Smells of grapefruit, pine, some stone/pitted fruit, along with a slight sweetness.
Taste is odd astringent/onion hop character up front that goes into a more unpleasant grassy/vegetal character that lingers into the finish. Almost has a chemical-like taste...odd.
Light to medium body with medium to low carbonation and no real signs of the abv.
The aroma and appearance had me excited for this one, but it has a surprisingly grassy/astringent character that is not pleasing, along with an odd, really dry vegetal taste in the finish.

12 oz. can poured into a shaped DFH pint glass. Thanks to Brendan for sending this one.
A - Pours copper with a two fingers of off-white head. The foam dies quickly, but leaves a thick halo around the edge. Good lacing.
S - Smells of stale grains, some citrus hops, and sweet bread. I'm not a big fan of the aroma. Smells more like an English IPA thn a West Coast IPA.
T - Strong citrus hops throughout. Sweet and malty enough to balance. Dry and bitter finish.
M - Medium body with an underlying smooth carbonation.
O - I didn't really enjoy the aroma, but the flavor made up for it. Very balanced IPA with good malt and a bitter finish. I always appreciate a good IPA from a can as well. Pretty good stuff.

Filled my growler today, pouring into a pint glass.
A: Thick, 2 finger, white with a darker tint, very bubbly, frothy, sticks to the rim as it dissipates, head retention up to par, carbonation looks excellent. Filtered, extremely light amber / brown hue.
S: Can you say hops? Potent dank hop aroma off the bat, very dominant. Undertones of some sweet malts.
T: The dank hops have a resiny, grapefruit taste. Turns to a sour green apple feel on the back end of the gulp, as it splashes to the throat. Malt profile is somewhat lacking, caramel sweet notes are there but could use a bigger backbone to balance the hops. Extremely potent hop juice taste lingers after each sip, guessing from a good amount of dry hopping.
M: Hoppy bitter from the start to finish, feels like a bubbly burning sensation. I really like the relatively high level of bitterness (reminds me of Lagunitas' Hop Stoopid), it balances out the light body making for a slower, more enjoyable drinking experience.
O: One of my favorite IPAs in general and love that it is locally produced (only 20 minutes down the road). For the style, it is relatively one sided towards the hop profile but we are talking IPAs so in that aspect A+. Implement a more sturdy malt backbone and I-10 would be recognized nationally.

A - Pours with one and a half fingers of white foam, resting on top of a hazy, orange-copper body. The foam settles slowly and leaves nice, thick lace.
S - Pungent hop aroma with lots of pine and tropical fruit. Some bready malt in the background with just a hint of caramel.
T - Sweet malt up front with some bready character and a hint of toffee. Pine hop flavor in the middle with a hint of floral character. The beer finishes with dry bready malt and a strong, somewhat harsh bitterness.
M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a very dry finish.
D - The hop aroma is excellent, thought the flavor is a bit weaker. The fruity hop nose is rich and juicy but it is more one dimensional flavor wise with pine and some spicy, floral notes that just don't live up to the aroma. There is bready malt character throughout but it gets so dry in the finish that it leaves little to balance the stiff bitterness. Drinkable, but with a touch more flavor and some residual sweetness to even out the finish it could be even better.
