2.53/5 rDev -41.7%
Canned 12/27/13, bought at the brewery and placed in the fridge. Poured into my Perennial tulip.
Pours hazy orange, decent lacing, not much in the way of head retention.
Has a generic American hop aroma. Some grapefruit, a touch of resiny pine, a bit herbal and floral. Nothing stands out, and it's not as in your face as I'd expected.
Pretty much the same as the nose, plus booze and a bit of malt. Well balanced bitterness, so it's got that going for it.
A little on the heavy side, could use a bit more carbonation.
Overall, I am let down by this beer.

Poured into DFH IPA glass and also drank part from the can as instructed, I think the latter is my preference for this beer.
Pours a straw yellow with thin head and lots of clinging to the glass. From the glass I get earthy, dirty hops with more bitterness than aroma. The smell coming from the can is actually stronger I think, lemon pine-sol and more typical tropical fruit hops. Taste follows the smell, lots of lemon and tropical fruit. Ends with a dry, chalky finish that reminds me of Pliny the Younger and Enjoy By, but I seem to be the only one disturbed by it, so maybe don't trust me on that.
I gave my scores based on the can, I'd suggest that over pouring it into a glass.
It's an interesting beer, but I much prefer their flagship IPA The Corruption.

Got a can of this at Max's in Baltimore. From notes.
A - Hazy copper pour with one finger of off white head. No visible carbonation, good lace, rings of retention.
S - Dank hop pellets, onion.
T - Orange, hop pellets, onion, citrus, resin, leafy.
M - Good carbonation, medium to full body, pretty bitter.
O/D - Not as good as it's made out to be. Might be the Falconer's Flight but the oniony element was a bit too much for me. It was odd, but not is a really offputting way. Decent, but not world class like it's said to be. A letdown overall.
