look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Look: A very deep amber that has a cloudy orange hue. The head is white and very thin.

Smell: Very perfumey nose... Lemon, Pine, Floral... and I'll say it... almost a manure scent... like driving past a farm... maybe that's just me...

Taste: Very sharp bitters that really come and go quite pleasantly. The hops really shine bright here. Very floral/citrusy west coast style IPA, with very subtle toasted malt characteristics.

Feel: Fine... yet elegant carbonation. Medium bodied and a extremely smooth finish.

Overall: Simply put... will buy again.

From the 12 fl. oz. can. Sampled on November 23, 2014

Slightly cloudy orange-amber pour with a tremendous white foamy head.

Those floral hops are very notable on the nose along with the toasted biscuit character. It is what I might expect.

The body is medium and smooth.

The taste has an abundance of floral hops mixed in with those biscuit malts. I drink so many beers that have similar characteristics and this one is similar to Wachusetts Larry and others, but I really enjoyed it nonetheless.

12oz. can served in a shaker pint. Pours a copper colored hue with a slight haze to the clarity and a tight, one inch, cream-colored head. Head eventually settles into a fluffy, quarter inch head with delicate, textured swaths of lacing revealed as the brew recedes. Nose expresses earthy/herbal notes with a light citrus quality interspersed. Taste follows nose with a pleasant malty backbone and a light, herbal/medicinal bitterness that lingers between quaffs. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with an even carbonation and a slight acidity. Overall, a very drinkable IPA. I'm very impressive with this beer as a year round offering. Well worth your time.
