Sampling right now on 2/23/15. Only comes in a 12-ounce can, which I am really not a fan of but some brews only come that way. Can chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a pint glass.

Brew pours a pretty copper-amber in color with a good 1+ finger foamy head that finally settles down to 2mm after after 20 minutes. Lots of ring-like lacing is seen that sticks to the inside of the glass. The aroma is full of flavor with earthy grains and pine. Bit more going on with the taste as there is some floral hops in the mix as well. A slightly dry and light bitter finish but doesn't last all that long. Probably one of the better APA style brews though, although I am not a really a big fan of this style of brew. I will say that as it warmed up a bit, it was a little better. Medium-bodied with good carbonation. Overall, it wasn't all that bad, for me anyway.

A bit cheap but not bad. Not a lot of bitterness that most IPAs have

Nice. Very nice. Will I drink it if offered to me in a social setting? Yes. Will my heart go "aflutter" when I discover this is all my host has to offer? No. Still, nice. Very nice.
