Yay cans!

Big creamy head stops perfectly at the top of my Portsmouth tulip glass, hitting a bit more than 2 fingers, then fades semi slowly with nice lacing, good retention, a hazy bright tangerine orange color with rosy hue.

NOse starts with musty hop resin, some citrus but not a ton, with a bit of a tangerine and light clementine citrus aroma, hint of tropical fruit and juicy hop aroma, as well as a bit of that fresh musty pungent hop that even brings a hint of pine and spiciness, and a mild sweet aromatic malty pop underneath.

Taste starts a bit malty surprisingly, a slight creamy toasty reddish malt with hint of caramel. That quickly gives way to the layers of hops. The hops come on slightly spicy and piney at first, with more resin but light resin, and a musty light dankness. Then into citrus, a candied orange peel effect with touch of orange zest and citrus juice, then it gets quite pithy, a bit of a grapefruit rind like flavor, more tangerine and hint of tropical fruit juice, and finally back into a mild spicy quality with hint of pine resin. There is a bit of sweetness that matches the slight hint of booze well. Finish dries a bit and lingers with the spicy hop, more resin and pine, and a light candied orange peel citrus too, touch of sticky malt.

Mouth is med to a bit fuller bod, nice fluffy carb.

Overall quite nice, a nice hoppy IPA with good hop profile, nice malt balance esp for the slight touch of alcohol and fair overall bitterness, but still drinkable. Tasty, esp for a can of IPA that is a bit more easy to get than something like Heady Topper, but becoming a bit more difficult over time.
