Served cold from a 12 oz can into a shaker pint. No date stamp on the can.

Descender is a slightly hazy golden amber color with thick white head. It has good retention and leaves some nice lacing as it settles.

Aroma is hoppy and fresh with candied citrus, grapefruit, and pine.

Flavor is sweet up front with pale malts, caramel, and toast. Bitterness is at a good level for an American IPA. Pine is more dominant in the flavor than the aroma with the citrus playing a smaller role.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated.

Overall a very good Pacific NW IPA and worth seeking out.
