Served from a can in a Trooper shaker pint glass.

No wake 'til Brooklyn! Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises light grass backed up by light caramel. The taste holds notes of spicy greens, pine resin, and light dried caramel. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, this was an alright IPA, but the odd spice mixing with the bitterness of the resin just didn't quite do it for me.

smells uber hoppy with lots of lemon smell. you can smell the alcohol content which weighs in at 7+ %.

pours slightly a amber/gold body white lumpy very retentive head with lots of lace on the glass from a 1 pint and 6 ounce .

lots of hops and lemon lime a slight alcohol burn gives it a very refreshing feel . here’s also some nutty flavors maybe cashews or pistachio I can’t decide, but its good.

Pours hazed golden with a thin head that lasts. Some lacing sticks.

The smell of citrus and herbal/spicy hops come through as strong as the bready, caramel-ish malt. Some black pepper from the alcohol mixes in. Mild, but pleasant overall.

The taste is of herbal/floral spicing - with a touch of citrus. Caramel and bready/grainy malt balance it. Alcohol is quite noticeable, though not overbearing, in the finish.

The texture is slightly watery, but bitter taste is not washed out.

It's a more "balanced"/more mild IPA, but still enjoyable. Pretty easy to drink despite some heat from the alcohol. Overall, a pretty solid take on a standard American IPA.
