can't resist an ipa that's new to distribution in the state, especially when it's in a can!! (CAN when you can!)
A:great gold color, not overly bubbly, 2 inch off white head and leaving some wicked good lacing around the glass.
S: one of the more piney i.p.a.s I've smelled in a while, very resinous smelling.
T: whaaaat!? wow this is really good, and really different. the piney resinous-ness is there but not overpowering as the aroma may imply. There is also this sweet sugary after taste that I have never tasted before in any style of beer that is very delicious!!
M; low high carbonation which I love in any style of beer, leaves a semi dry after taste probably coming from the resiny hops.
o.a. 8.5 outta 10 on beerlover's rating scale, I would definitely buy this again, may have even rateded higher if I hadn't had so many good pale ales and india pales lately!

Really a stunner. Has the nice, cloudy orange color. The head forms in a cascading fashion and is as thick as you'd like. Amazing retention. Huge meringue like craters and valleys. Large and small bubbles with an almost crusty lace.

The scent is a combination of English malt and Pacific Northwestern hops, citrus and pine standing front and center. A bit of orange rind rounds out the smell.

One of the best IPAs I've had. Lots of citrus in the taste, enough malt so you don't ceviche your tongue, and plenty of pine so the flavor never fades.

Yes, it's bitter, but that's the idea. It's not a palate crusher because it's well balanced. A lot of acid mixed in with malty sweetness. Almost full bodied, it's got plenty to keep the palate busy. The pine grabs your tongue and won't let go.

Just off the top of my head, one of the three or four best IPAs I've had. Not quite as sweet as Zombie Dust or Pliny the Elder, but this beer is right up there. Easy to drink despite solid bitterness and a good amount of alcohol. The tall boy can is just a bonus.
