Poured from a pint can into a tall tulip.

A - Nice amber color with about a finger of light tan soap bubble head. Short retention and sticky lacing.

S - Nice and balanced citusy hop aroma.

T - Tastes like an IPA. Bright and citrusy up front with a bitter hop finish. Nothing life changing or Earth shattering, but not bad by any means.

M - Crisp with a nice dry finish.

O - A good IPA. Nothing more, nothing less.

Serving type: can

Transparent orange with a single finger of fuzzy head. Not a particularly strong scent but a pleasant fruitiness. Probably the beers strongest trait. Not a harsh bitterness but reminds me of tree bark. A bit sour. Not so fruity for an IPA. Dry mouthfeel. Decent but odd.
