Poured from a 12 oz. can. Yes, that can reached me by way of woodychandler, a spectacular trader. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, and citrus. Taste is hops, citrus, a bit of pine, a mild bitterness highly drinkable. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Canned June 12th 2014.

Deep bronze orange, and hints of peach colors, with a good amount of clarity. Nice slow rising carbonation, bubbles are quite thin to match. Head is light and slightly khaki colored with moderate retention, and a small three finger very soapy head that slowly settles, with no lacing.

Very closed bouquet, but there are some aromas here. Malt seems to hit first with a bit of toasty bread and sweet cinnamon. A little doughy a bit too. Hop angle seems very indistinct and hard to detect. A bit of dank quality peaks out, and there's a sense of burnt grain on this.

Palate isn't really bringing the goods. A bit of a watery base to it. Malt and hop action comes off dry, but also with a very light and extremely chalky aftertaste. Parching. Hints of malt sweetness are completely lost on this adding no more to the flavor.

For an IPA this fresh this is extremely lacking in the hop department for starters. Unfortunately the other qualities of malt presence and the watery body really don't help either. Not horrible but this is a bit of a dud.
