12 ounce can, w/o freshness info

Clouded darker shade of golden amber. Sturdy and lasting lite khaki head, leaves real nice froth, low sheeting and scattered fine lace. Nice looking beer.

Big nose w/ floral, citric and per-fumy notes.

Well hopped and fresh tasting IPA, with more citrus n pine hop bombs dropping all over.

Quality IPA in a can. Impressed with this one.

Another beer courtesy of the legendary woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Came gushing out of the can making quite a mess, despite no agitation on my end. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very mild, a bit of hops. Taste is bitter, hoppy, a bit of lemons, kind of unusual for the style, and a touch unpleasant. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

Consumed 3/8/13

Appearance: Deep gold with some copper highlights - small, off-white head, fades quickly to a nonexistent cap - leaves a few tiny spots of lacing

Smell: Interesting hop profile - dry pine needles - orange and grapefruit rind, pith - some grapefruit flesh in the background - grassy and herbal - some caramel malts in the back

Taste: Unexpectedly aggressive - oily citrus, rind and pith - pine needles, grass, and aspirin - very bitter - minimal sweetness, which is a plus here - some dry caramel malts - an earthy undertone

Mouthfeel: Medium body, crisp, slightly sticky in the finish

Overall: Interesting, but not a showstopper

Maybe this should be enjoyed in a lawn chair in your backyahd. It has some citrusy hops, but it is also remarkably grassy. In some ways, the grassy and earthy notes are reminiscent of an APA. This just has a bigger hop profile. Worth a try.
