Yay craft beer cans.

as much as I love cans, they are harder to pour, and this yields a way to big foamy fluffy 3 finger head that's bigger than the beer and forces me to stop pouring, fades semi slowly with lots of lacing, fairly hazy light sediment laden orange honey colored.

Nose has some nice hops, a light floral hop character, mild grassy and spicy, a touch of a juice fruit hop and very faint citrus, a touch of apricot like fruit too, little spicy like. Hint of a malt base but not much.

Taste starts with more hops, mild to fair bitterness at first, but it ramps to a fairly stronger bitterness. Hops are juicy, a little bit of fruity hop character, mostly grassy and a little spicy, light leafy too, and faint pine. Citrus comes through a bit more as it goes, adn again a little fruity apricot like. Malts are very light, just a touch of malt character but mostly seems a little watery. Finish gets quite bitter, more spicy hop bitterness mostly, little grassy and leafy, hint of fruity hop again, no malt.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, a little watery feeling, and decent carb.

Overall not bad, nicely drinkable and nice hop profile, but the malts are just lacking way too much I think.

In a pint glass this beer was a dark amber color. There was a medium-sized off white head that left a bit of lace.

Aroma of citrus and flowers, as well as sweet malt.

Tastier than the aroma implied. Grapefruit and flowers. Strong malt background of caramel and bread.

A hoppy beer, but still very malt forward. Nice balance.

Enjoyed it.

12 oz can from beer of the every other month club. Poured into SA Perfect Pint.

A - this was really neat... the bottom started out clear but then after I finished the pour it was overtaken by haze. Body is bronze. Nice white head, really big at first. Good lacing and retention.

N - nicely hopped. Like a pine forest. Some citrus and bread malts too.

T - also good hop flavor. Mostly resiny. Some grass. Would be a great camping or hiking beer.

M - crisp. A bit heavy but not bad. Dry.

O - I really enjoyed this one and will be on the look out for more.

Cheers!

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Cloudy yellow-orange in color. Forms a large, rocky, and very stable head. There's even some hop resin floating on top of head. Lots of lacing.

S: Aroma starts off with a slight metallic twang. Carbonation. Hops. Herbal-grassy hops. Maybe a little pine.

T: Taste falls off. Not bad. Just not that interesting. Bready malts, some light citrus and more of the grassy hops.

M: Lighter body. Heavier carbonation. Low bitterness.

O: A fairly middle of the road APA.

Serving type: bottle
