16 oz can, canned on 3/27/13 stamped on bottom of can.

almost clear, reddish copper, nice big off-white head. good head retention, and great lacing rings the glass. wonderful aroma of juicy citrus fruits and light pine. enough malt to give it a biscuity sweetness to balance the great hop dominance. not bitter, just tons of hop flavor. sticky on the tongue. medium body and carbonation.

overall an excellent IPA, just the way I like it with darker malt.

A: Pours an amber brown color with a full 1-2 fingers of head. Nice and thick. Good head retention. Chunky lacing on the glass.

S: Lots of sweet scent front the malting and some subtle hopping.

T: BItter front to back from ample grassy, spicy hops. Mixed with a strong malt backbone give a nice sweetness but not too much.

M: Creamy and thick.

O: Great brew.

12oz can. Pours a slightly hazy reddish amber with a large long lasting beige head. Very good head retention and lacing throughout. Aroma and Taste is of earthy floral hops, caramel malt, yeast and fruity esters, a bit of dark fruit and bread notes. Palate is a medium body, smooth with good carbonation. A nice combination of sweet caramel malt, yeast and fruity balanced with some earthy floral hops on the ending. Not overly bitter and with a good caramel malt background. Overall a very good, tasty and enjoyable brew. Nice
