12oz can purchased at Huckleberry’s in Spokane for $1.35. No freshness date. According to the can, this beer has 70 IBUs.
Poured a clear amber color, with a big, creamy, off-white head that hung around a while. Lots of lace, Great looking beer!
Piney hops greet the nose. There are some tropical notes as well, but I get more pine than anything else. There’s a very mild, bready malt scent as well.
Piney hops hit the tastebuds first, with an undercurrent of grapefruit-like flavor. Bitterness up front subsides slowly throughout the taste bud never goes away, with a dry zap to the swallow.
Slightly oily mouthfeel. Carbonation is spot–on.
Another well-made Northwest IPA in a can. This is a trend I can get used to. Not so big an IPA that will strip the enamel off your teeth, so incorrigible hopheads might not want to rush out and get it, but it’s quite drinkable. Unfortunately, the abv is a little high for sessioning if at a bar, so you might want to take it home instead. The fact that it is in cans should make that easy to do.

Grabbed a growler of this from Total Wine, and this must be extremely fresh because it taste very similar to Stone Enjoy By's, 10-25 specifically, which was one of my favorite IPAs.
If you love Enjoy By then you will love this beer. It's fantastic.

12oz can into a tulip. Thanks again to beertunes for making this happen!
Pours a crystal clear honey copper color w/ a big fluffy head that leaves behind beautiful lace, looks like a frost-covered window.
Aroma is pure hoppy goodness. Grapefruit rind, peach, orange, a hint of pineapple. Mama mia.
Taste is likewise hoppy and bitter, balanced nicely by a blend of biscuity pale and maybe some breadier caramel malt. Like chewing on whole hops cones. Thoroughly satisfying.
Mouthfeel is also just right. Not too light and not too heavy. Nice bitter finish.
Overall a really solid, well-crafted IPA. One more please.

12oz can picked up at Brewforia Meridan for $2... Pours with a nice 2 finger white head that supplies great sheets of lacing.. the beer is slightly hazed orange.
Nose leans toward the tropical fruity hops with some tangerine and grapefruit.... a fair amount of residual maltiness seems out of lace and carries too much caramel malt.
The caramel malts now carry something that I automatically associate with diacetyle... a bit butter/slick for sure... good bitterness and flavor hops help this brew out, but I cannot get past the malty messiness.
Body is light with a light/medium carbonation... still pretty drinkable despite my above negatives.... just needs some work.
