look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a can (yep a can) into a pint glass. Upon pouring, this beer produces a nice one and a half fingers of thick, marshmallow cloud foam. A beautiful orange speckled with lots of tiny sediment makes this beauty sparkle. Truly a sight to behold. Crazy amounts of lace coat the glass in huge ridges. The head sticks around for a while; dimpling and begging to be gazed upon. The smell is all clean..pine and citrus..with bright floral hop notes. Mouthfeel is medium and just crisp enough. Taste is all pine sap and orange with a nice warm buttery glow on the tongue. Hops are all over the place and leave a great piney-hop aftertaste. I could pound these bad boys all night. Definitely a sleeper and for the price you'd be hard pressed to find anything this tasty. I can't say I noticed an aluminum or canned taste in the slightest. I'd easily recommend this to anyone as a great standout IPA. This brew is clearly in need of a review revisit by some who have been blinded by the can.

-from notes
Poured from a "stovepipe" can into a glass

Pours a very nice cloudy copper-orange with a one-finger, foamy head that leaves some light lacing.

The aroma is subtle; grassy, with a bit of lemon.

The taste is marvelous. I get some pine and grassiness up front with a hint of sweet nuttiness and bready malt. There is a nice, lingering bitterness.

Really like the feel of this beer. A little smooth with a nice mouth-coating quality.

Overall, a really good beer that I wish was available to me on a regular basis.
