Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Canned Oct 20th 2014.

Thick and fluffy very large controlled head, off tan in appearance, huge staying power and retention, with a smooth cap. Foamy ring lacing while settling very slowly. Gorgeous crystal bronze and garnet red body color, with ample rising carbonation coming from the bottom. Great looking IPA.

Mild subtle hop notes of dank earth. More notes of caramel and some sweet herbs come forth a bit though taking over just a bit. Some juiced orange like character squeaks out just a bit wanting to poke it's aroma through. Very subtle but quite nice in a way.

Palate comes quite nicely with a subtle kick. Mild juiced body with lots of good tangerine soft sweetness. Malt action takes a bit of backseat with still some toffee light notes but lets the hops do the talking. Juiced orange body, with a resin soft chewy feel, then gives way to leafy herbal tea quality. Comes off almost like wet hop brewed interestingly, with a big airy aftertaste. Mild pine to mint finish with a breathmint quality.

Overall really nice with some subtle complex character and good balance.

Served in a 12 ounce can. not expecting anything i was surpised at how good it it is. I taste grapefruit peel and orange. has a kinda creamy mouth feel. this is good stuff. the flavors tend to fade quickly so it doesnt over whelm the taste buds and makes me want to drink more. good stuf. i will get this again.
