Simple. Limited hops. Due to it being a bit less full bodied of an IPA i would suggest drinking it a little colder

From the can. No dates anywhere. Sampled on February 1, 2015.

The pour is a slightly cloudy looking medium amber with a good white fizzy head that leaves plenty of lacing.

The aromas are earthy, grassy with some toasted biscuit.

Medium body and smooth.

As for the taste the hop bitterness kicks in more solidly than the aroma suggests with a pucker-up earthy and grassy bitterness that lingers on the backside.

poured from a can into glass. Poor attempt at an IPA. Bitter

A: 3.75 - Cloudy gold color with a moderate but fading head.
S: 3.75 Nice bouquet of citrusy, floral hops.
T: 4.0 - Plenty of bitterness, and a lot of citrus tasting hops: tastes like an IPA back from the late 90s. Very light malt, with a dry finish.
M: 3.75 - Light bodied, perhaps a tad thin, but with good carbonation.
O: 4.0 - Nothing complex here, but it's highly drinkable and I enjoyed it.

Very watery. Even for 6% ipa. Glad I only bought one can.
