Canned three days before popping the top.

Appearance: Nice Golden color
Smell: Hops Hops and more Hops. Pine and Grapefruit
Taste: Like the smell. Very aggressive on the palate.
Overall, this beer is good, but it's just too aggressive for me. I would have preferred more malt balance.

We got a pretty good one here, my peeps.

Smells like that girl you love to remember, but should forget - because like this tall can, it will disappear eventually.

Taste is wonderful and pops with exotic juices like Tupac's morning smoothie, while along with that is a mellow malt that pretty much chills hard like your girlfriends's little sister sitting on the coach who was just stood up for prom.

Now, this isn't the best of the best. There is a lil syrup (just a bit) in the end. And overall, the IPA flavor profile isn't top of the heap. Still, we still have a pretty doggone good one right here, my peeps.

16oz can. Dated 9/9/2014, poured into a teku glass 10/10/2014.

A- Hazy, darker caramel brown body. Two finger offwhite head that is quite thick and recedes into a thick, substantial collar that sticks around for a while. Rings of lacing complete the picture. [4]

S- Grapefruit, passion fruit, orange, caramel, hop resin. Very fruity in the aroma, brings out a bit more of the malt sweetness manifesting as toffee, adding to its overall complexity as it warms. [4.25]

F- Toffee, citrus, grapefruit, a bit of pine. Very, very aggressively hopped and quite bitter, complex and not one-note in any way. Nice caramel, toffee malt backbone balances things out, even gives a slight hint of a barleywine caramel-forward sweetness. Pine and grapefruit skin on the finish. [4.5]

M- Medium bodied, nicely carbonated, palate-wrecking pine and citrus skin bitterness throughout. Resinous at first, gets drier as it warms up, very smooth and substantial. Very enjoyable to drink. [4.25]

O- Definitely helluva hopped up- bursting with fruity hop flavours with a nice strong malt backbone that's enough to add plenty of sweetness to balance out the bitterness. This is a very good hoppy, bitter, resinous beer that is also easy to drink. [4.25]

Final score: 4.35
