Poured from 12 oz can, into a standard pint.

A: Medium golden hue. Pours about a 2 finger, foamy, white head. Settles slowly and unevenly leaving plenty of dry, sticky residue as it does. Substantial lacing.

N: Nose is cardboard, and pine, with some very light floral components.

T: Light earthy, pine flavor.

M: A little shallow, but a light crisp body, and a slightly dry finish.

D: Not much resistance. Sip or fire away.

Atmosphere is pretty strong. Nice hue, great head, and some great lacing. Nose is light earthy and floral combination. Flavor is earthy, and lightly piny, but quite shallow. Overall, this is a good quaff.

Clear copper gold in color. White head.

This beer is a little more malty than weekend warrior. Bready malts with floral and pine hops. A dose of citrus mixed in as well. Very earthy.

I'd say this is a fairy average ipa. Ends sticky. I'd pick something over this one next time.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Thanks to twiggamortis420 for this can!

Something about the armadillo that no matter his form it takes, I still love it. Dunno why... This stuff pours a clear topaz-amber topped by a finger of cream-white foam. The nose comprises pine needles, mild caramel, and a touch of orange rind. It's subtle, but decently effective. The taste brings in more of the same, with a touch of earthy greens tossed in for good measure. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a nice little IPA, nothing earth-shattering or anything, but a generally enjoyable brew.
