Poured from a 12 oz. can (Canned On 01-23-12) into a pint glass.
A moderate pour yields a 1-finger cream-colored head that quickly dissipates down to a thin, messy dusting and thick foam ring. The body is a clear copper amber with very few carbonation bubbles. No lacing can be seen at any point during consumption.
Earthy, grainy malt aromas create a strong backbone for the hops. Citrus aromas carry notes of tangerines and grapefruit. The malt and hops aromas are very balanced and compliment each other nicely.
Citrusy and slightly spicy, each sip starts with notes of orange peels and tangerines. Grainy, bready malt flavors balance the hops flavors and add a bit of structure. Upon swalowing, all the hops and malts flavors become bolder, with a bit more spiciness. As these flavors fade, a slight bitterness becomes evident on the back of the tongue.
Light bodied with light carbonation, this beer is easy drinking but could use a bit more fizz. The body is spot on for the style but the carbonation could use a bit of work. The swallow is rather weak due to the lack of carbonation.

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.
