A: The beer is clear amber yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high frothy off white head that took a long time to die down, but never completely faded away.
S: Light to moderate amounts of citrusy and grassy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste shares some similarities to the smell, starting off with initial flavors of light citrusy hops and finishing with slightly stronger flavors of grassy hops that linger into the finish. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The grassy hops in this beer make it unique compared to other beers in the style.

Serving type: can

Can shared by Curran last night, thanks man.

Pours a dirty earthy orange, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells fairly citrusy, with some lemon zest and pine leading the way.

This tastes fairly good, but it's got a fairly watery middle, that leaves the flavors falling a bit flat. There's something missing. The notes of pine, citrus, grass, and a bit of caramel malt do taste good, they just don't pop like I know they should.

The body on this one is light, with a crisp but slightly watery mouthfeel, as mentioned above. There is a moderate amount of carbonation.

This falls just a bit short, some tweaks and it would be excellent.

Aroma: Moderate grassy and citrus hop notes up front. Light caramel notes and clean fermentation character as the beer warms.

Appearance: Hazy amber pour with a low white head. Tight bubbles fade to sticky lacing. Head retention is fair. Appears still in the glass.

Flavor: Firm earthy hop bitterness up front. Mild grassy and lemon hop flavors. A bready backbone which provides a counterpoint. The balance is easily to the firm earthy hop bitterness. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste lingers and is bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. Slightly oily. No astringency or creaminess noted. No alcohol heat detected.

Overall impression: A bitter American IPA. Seems to blend into the "sea of sameness" for a lot of IPA's on the market these days. Not terrible but nothing to set it apart from the pack either. Too many other good examples out there for me to seek out again.
