12oz can poured into an Idle Hands tulip. No date on can.

A - Pours a neutral amber color with excellent clarity. A firm pour into the center of the glass yields a thick finger of frothy white head with very good staying power. Sheets of lacing left all over the sides of the glass. Good looking beer.

S - A bit buttery, very earthy, malty sweetness, caramel malt, a bit grassy...not what I was expecting. Hops are very muted overall.

T - Buttery, caramelly malt base. Clean bitter hops at a medium intensity and lingering thru the finish. A bit metallic too. Touches of pine are there, but really lacking in hop presence.

M - Medium body, medium carbonation. Hoppy bitterness in the middle lingering thru the finish.

O - Not sure how old this can is...I'm guessing it is not the freshest can around. Probably not giving this beer a fair shake. Would like to try again to see what a fresh can is all about...this one just has a dull IPA flavor that is lacking in hop character and not that impressive.

Gorgeous thick frothy crown sets up high above a blurry gold and orange.

The nose holds bright citrus notes, mostly pink grapefruit, lemon rind, orange and possibly mango. The herbal, floral hops are resiny pine and rose petal like aromas.

The flavor is spot on the nose with the citrus and herbal hops in full mix.

The feel is very full and satisfying, maybe a touch oily and slick, but very smooth. The bitterness and astringency normal encountered in the style is tempered nicely.

This is a solid beer, a solid IPA and a deeply satisfying drink.

12oz can into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a one finger, thick white head.

The hops in this really smack you in the face with lemon/lime and tropical citrus notes. There is really a lot of grass that comes through as well. Just the slightest bit of vanilla too.

Creamy lemon and lime in the flavor followed by some juicy tropical fruit; closely follows the aroma. Very crisp bitterness wit enough malt to keep the hops from being overwhelming. Everything cleans up very nicely towards the finish with some light bread and just the tiniest bit of sweetness.

Overall, a very good IPA from a smallish regional brewery. Impressive from a young brewery and really deserves to be better known.

Much thanks to my friends Richard and Alanna for grabbing me this brew.

A: Pale yellow straw in color, with good clarity and a nice amount of white rocky head on top.

S: Pine and grapefruit peel with small notes of orange peel as well. There may even be a hint of lemon balm in there. Nice super clean hoppy smell, not a lot as far as caramel sweetness. Smells nice.

T: Clean bitterness with grapefruit being the predominant flavor. Some pine and light citrus. Not a lot as far as a malt profile goes.

M: Fairly light body, in fact a little too light. There is a nice dryness to it, but leaves the mouth wanting a bit of gravity. There is a slight oily feel from the hops and certainly an assertive bitterness.

O: The alcohol is in there somewhere, but it isn't too obvious. For me the flavor is a little one note, it's hoppy, and that's about it. It's bordering on a little watery for me, and the lack of malt flavor makes it seem like a one trick pony.
