12 oz. can poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a nice golden-amber color with nice off-white head, 1+ fingers. Good retention and leaves some lacing.
Smell: Mild orange aroma, and perhaps a hint of spice.
Taste: Floral hop taste up front gives way to oranges, apples, caramel, and eventually the hop bitterness as it nears the finish. Generally bitter aftertaste, but balanced out a bit with some of the citrus.
Mouthfeel: Light- to medium-bodied and generally smooth, with carbonation a bit on the lighter side.
Drinkability: Moderate ABV and nice flavor make it quite drinkable.
A bit hoppier than I expected, this is a nice and fairly refreshing IPA. Nothing earth-shattering, but certainly pleasant.
Serving type: can

COD 4/21/14. Pours a clear almost medium amber with a nice dark ruby tint. Tremendous head with excellent lacing and retention. Very nice nose of tropical citrus hops over a pine and light caramel background. Medium body with an almost slick texture. Above average carbonation with a nice effervescent finish. The flavor profile is complex and well balanced. It begins with a blend of hop flavors found in the nose, then rapidly flows to a pine focused hop bitterness over a slightly tart note. As the bitterness fades, a light caramel sweetness emerges in the effervescent finish. A tart pine bitterness with hints of spice lingers.
