Golden amber in color with an inch think frothy off white head. Brussels lacing. Sharp aroma of citrus hops is dominating the nose. That carries through into the flavor when my taste buds are assaulted by citrus hops. There's a strong light malt backbone that quickly follows on the back of the palate. It's back to citrus hops in the aftertaste. The mouth is slightly sticky and creamy.

Poured from the can into a spiegelau IPA glass. Canned June 9th 2014.

Big thick head. Enormous but not to fast forming or too out of control, but it's big retention leaves a lot of waiting. Soapy and light khaki colored, sitting on top of a dark rust orange body, with fine carbonation, and a bit of a cloudy appearance.

Light caramel nose, hints of light icing sugar. A faint sweet floral nose to go with it, but do not detect much hop presence. A bit of spice and cream, the sweetness is all over this from caramel, icing sugar, and so forth.

And like the nose hints, it's way too sugary. Lots of syrup and sweet malts all over the place. Sticky caramel and sugar water. THick bodied and poured on pancakes sweetness, honey coating lip and mouthfeel.

So where are the hops? This brew isn't that old, and it's malt component is just overpowering and cloyingly sweet. This actually tastes like beer that has no yeast added to it before fermentation. Ughh, I can't finish this.
