4.01/5 rDev -0.2%
12 FL. OZ. can
Served in a teku glass
A - It pours a brilliant amber color and is crystal clear. It is topped with two inches of off-white head.
S - The smell has some faint citrus and tropical fruit aromas. I even get a little juniper, but the smells are not strong. The aromas are good, but weak.
T - The taste starts out with weak citrus and barely perceptible tropical fruit. As I consume the taste grows with each subsequent drink. A pine finish become apparent. I was disappointed at first but this beer is growing on me the more I drink it.
M - Moderate to thin.
O - This is one of the easiest drinking IPA's that I have had. I could drink this all day. The flavor is subtle enough to not overwhelm the palate after a couple beers. But that being said, it is not an IPA that a single serving would satisfy my craving for hops. The taste makes it great for having a few, but lacking in enough flavor for cravings.

Everything I've ever wanted in an IPA. Balanced, but lets the hops do the talking with not too much malt. No added sweetness, but still so incredibly fruity. Scarily easy to drink. Cannot be beaten fresh from the brewery out of the can. Outstanding!

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.
