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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.

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

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.
