I do enjoy a beer with a witty name, hopefully the beer can back it up, and yay canned craft beer! No date on the can, but should be fresh. Just received in a trade thanks to crapturds (reddit).

Pours a nice big creamy 1 finger head that fades semi slowly, nice soapy lacing, a hazy apricot orange slight golden huge beer.

Nose brings a nice hop aroma, though a bit lighter than I expected as far as strength goes. It brings a nice floral note, with some citrus, a little stone fruit, mild grassy notes, mild pith like and even a bit resinous, also a nice tangerine as it warms, all that with a hint of a sweet candy malt base.

taste comes on with a big hop base, and what seems like malts but comes through bone dry. Hops are the main attraction again, with more citrus and a little resin, mild grapefruit pith with a bit more tangerine, a hint of a stone fruit note, mild grassy slightly herbal hops that also hint at a touch of mint in the background. There is a mild reddish toasty malt presence in there, but no sweetness as it seems almost overly attenuated, the balance is long gone. The hops turn a bit spicy and chewy on the back end, and especially on the super dry finish, as the hops really linger with bitterness it gets a little astringent and tongue nagging bitter, which is not necessarily a bad thing if you love super hoppy bitter beers.

Mouth is med bod, lots of nice fluffy carbonation, very dry.

Overall quite nice, enjoyable tasty hops, with enough body to back it up despite the lack of sweetness or much of a malt profile. That being said, perhaps a bit over-attenuated as it lacks any sort of balance and the rampant hops just destroy your palate. Still a pretty nice beer.

*12 oz can*

I was on vacation and found this little sixer that was dated 6-25-14. So I bought it! Time to describe this brew. First this comes at you like looking like an easier to find Pliny. Very pretty to look at! Deep golden honey almost on the brink of copper tone. Pleasant whit tight bubbly head. The fumes from this is pretty standard for an IPA. Huge floral hops with underlying citric notes of grapefruit zest and a little bit of pineapple. Grains are there and are dominant while this brew warms. The flavor is as the nose describes. Citric and floral/grass with a kiss of resinous hops. The malts are there resembling toasted grains and biscuits. Semi-dry finish with a bitter snap of hop resins that coat the tongue. The body on this beer Medium-light, par carbonation to help the flavors pop.

Overall: I'm glad I made this purchase. This is an above par hoppy brew. It's slightly off balanced, which is a good thing IMO. That way all the hop oils still stay within the beer. Yet it's also not hop water. This brew is crisp and clean. I have no problem killing a few after cutting the grass, yadayadayada... This brew is Worthy!

Got as part of a beer trade with pkthebuckeye. Can into a pint glass

A&S: I could smell this one the second I opened the can. Lots of tropical and citrus aromas in the smell. Hints of some earthy tones. Very pretty looking beer, hazy light orange with lots of carbonation liveliness. Head is white and has pretty great retention along with leaving a far bit of specked lacing on the glass.

T&M: Upfront is full of citrus hops. A wee bit of maltyness for balance (but primary a hop forward style ipa). Mildly bitter in the finish, doesn't hang around excessively on the palate. On the higher side of medium for body and crisp, but not shape carbonation.

Overall: Great beer, would recommend. One of, if not my favorite of the trade.
