A pretty decent sized off white head settles into a nice lacing above a clear bright copper golden colored beer with fairly decent carbonation.

There seems to be a light sourness to citrus, grassy to piney hops aroma.

A nice hops bite with some citrus and some piney aspects coming to the forefront, with a little bit of some malt tastes coming through later.

A almost wet aftertaste turns to a light dryish aftertaste with just a bit of the hops notes sticking around on this medium bodied beer.

A easy drinking IPA with a decent hops presentation that has you wanting to take another swig.

Clear golden in color with a big, white head that goes down fast but leaves a good amount of lacing. Smells like citrus hops and bready malt. The malt comes out first with those citrus hops playing around on your tongue. Then the bitterness builds slowly until it lingers at a high intensity after swallowing, but the hops aren't overwhelmingly bitter thoughout. I think this is one of the most balanced and consistent ipas I've come across.

12oz can poured into pint glass. Another thanks to SSW117 for sending this.

A- Pours a translucent brownish golden with about a half finger of white head that quickly recedes to a thin layer. Decent carbonation, leaves some carbonation.

S- Light citrus hops with a tiny bit of pine, oranges, bready malts, and spices, below average aroma strength for an IPA.

T- Light citrus hops mixed with bready malts, spices, a little bit of caramel, finishes with bready malts.

M- Medium bodied, average carbonation, easy to drink.

O- This IPA definitely had a lot more bready malts then I was expecting with a light citrus hop taste. The citrus hops were more dominant when I first opened the can, but faded fairly fast. This was an average IPA that was easy to drink, but nothing in it particularly stood out. Glad I got to try it though, thanks again Sam!

Served from can into a Boulevard tulip. Poured yellow-orange with a one finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, grass, onion, earth, earth hop, and onion hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, grass, onion hop, earth, earth hop, and subtle metallic. It had a light feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. If I am completely honest on this one it really reminded me of Oskar Blues Gubna as far as the aroma and flavor (minus garlic). It was really earthy as well which mixed quite well with all the onion and grass aspects going on. I really hate a metallic flavor note showed up in this one as it would have been a really solid brew if it were not there. Definitely worth your time to try if you are an IPA fan.
