Aroma is predominantly caramel malt with pine in the background. Pours a one-finger, off-white head; moderate retention and good lacing. Body is clear, deep gold. Characteristic intense bitterness; grassy, pine-like hops; alcohol; just a touch of sweetness. Medium body; crisp, light carbonation.

Not a bad American IPA, but overall lacking a sense of balance and nuance. Aroma expresses more malt than hop, while the malt sweetness in the flavor is insufficient to serve a supporting role.

Date on the bottom of the can indicates 12/31/13

A: Light yellow or peach in color. Fairly cloudy. Forms a smaller bubbly head. Decent retention and lots of lacing.

S: Not a whole lot going on here. Bready with a mix of mild floral and mild spicy notes.

T: Taste is a bit better and represents an interesting take on the style. Light, but not at all unflavorful. Mild to moderate sweetness. Flavor is sort of lemon-lime, almost Sprite-like, but with a fairly aggressive bitterness (which is not at all Sprite-like). Maybe a little herbal green tea in the mix.

M: On the lighter side of medium. Fairly aggressive bitterness considering the lightness of the flavors of the beer. Medium carbonation.

O: A pretty good beer. It's a different take on the style, less malty than an East Coast American IPA, but with more bitterness and a much more subtle hop-flavor than a West Coast American IPA. Can't justify the price ($5 for a single 12oz can), but I am glad I was able to give it a try.
