Poured into a Double Barley soda-can shaped glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Citrusy hop aroma with some soily yeast tones and minimal malt backing.

T- Smooth hop flavor with mild bitterness. Slight suggestions of tropical fruit. Alcohol is decently masked.

M- A bit sharp from the hops with medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- A good IPA to offer someone as they're becoming accustomed to a higher level of hop content. Easy to drink with a subtle bitterness but it still has plenty of flavor.

Pours a rich golden hue, slight haze with a big white head. Smells piney, spicy and floral. Spicy, piney and resinous up front with moderate carbonation, fades to nice floral taste. Excellent lacking all the way down the glass. Medium body. Aftertaste piney on the tongue and a spiciness lingers in the throat. Heavy caramel notes emerge as it warms up. Grapefruit rind/pith on the tinge in the aftertaste.

Not great head retention or body feel. Kinda straw/yellow colour, with a real lack of carbonation. I couldn't tell the age, but I'm guessing it's an older bottle but the mediocre flavour and lacklustre finish
