12oz can into Ommegang BPA glass.
Pours an dark orange/amber with a medium sized fluffly off-white head. Smell is bright sticky citrus of the tangerine variety (some pine) and a hint of resin. Towards the extra hoppy side for an IPA. Taste starts with the citrus hops followed by a slightly musky malt. Nice and bitter. Mouthfeel is somewhat oily and medium in body and carb.
The strong hoppiness and somewhat odd malt give this IPA a certain strong sharpness that I'm not crazy about. There's a hop oil stickiness that is interesting as well. Worth a try for the west coast hop heads.

A: Pours a lightly hazy golden copper in color with light to moderate amount of fine active visible carbonation rising slowly from the bottom of the glass and hints of apricot + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a three finger tall sudsy foamy light tan head that slowly reduces to a half finger thick layer evenly covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of slightly sweet caramel malts with moderate aromas of citrus/orange rind and pine hops.
T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of slightly sweet caramel malts. There is a moderate flavor of citrus/orange rind hops with a light amount of pine hop flavors as well. Hints of herbal hops as well. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness which does not linger for long.
M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: This is an enjoyable and easy to drink IPA, nothing crazy but a solid offering that I would definitely grab again (thanks to my wife for bringing this one back from Houston). Alcohol is well hidden.
