Poured from a can into a Goose Island tulip. The beer is simply beautiful in the glass. It's crystal clear, deep gold in color, and sports a majestic frothy white head that retains itself very well and leaves behind some nice lacing. Nice dank hop aromas abound on the nose. Grapefruit, lemon, pine trees, and a hint of orange rind rise from the glass.

The beer has a medium body and a nicely balanced flavor. It is a tad sweet up front in a toast and marmalade kind of way. There are enough hops to remind you it's an IPA, but not nearly enough to make the beer rancidly bitter. The hop flavor is more of a floral, resiny, piney bitterness and less of a citrusy bitterness. As I prefer citrus, this is a pity. Still, the balance is so well dialed-in that I find myself thoroughly enjoying the flavor. It doesn't bombard you. It just sort of glides across the palate and leaves a nice lingering dank hoppy flavor on the finish (with your palate still more or less intact).

Overall, an extremely well-crafted IPA, though I wish it had more of a citrus character. It's important to note that this is not some hop-bomb-science-experiment or ridiculous ``extreme beer'' concoction. This is an exceptionally well-balanced American IPA; the kind that will still be popular when extreme beers have run their course. It's not intended for macho hopheads who dismiss anything that doesn't rip the taste buds off their tongue.
