3.9/5 rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Serving type- 12 ounce can poured into a mug.
A- Pours a hazy dark orange. There is a small white one finger head that seems to stick around for awhile. There is some carbonation activity after the pour. Overall a nice looking brew.
S- Notes of piney hops along with some citrus backing as well. Not a particularly strong smelling beer but not bad.
T- This is a nice tasdting East Coast IPA. Very suprised at the taste considering this is from a can. The taste starts with a nice bitter hop presnece then mellows a little and finished with a smooth somewhat sweet ending. This beer reminds me more of a west coast versus east coast IPA. Strong on hops but flavored nicely with some sweet malt. A very nicely balanced IPA.
I recieved this beer as an extra in this edition of the Growling at the Moon. I have been wanting to try this beer for awhile and I am very happy that I was finally able to get ahold of one. A very nice drinking IPA that due to its relative low ABV would be a nice drinkable beer that could be consumed in moderate quantites.

4.05/5 rDev +5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
A - Pours a hazy golden orange into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Creamy head recedes rather more quickly than I expected and forms a thin film up top. Spotty lacing. Lots of rapidly-streaming visible carbonation.
S - Absolute dynamite and clearly what turned out to be my favorite part of the beer. Great hop intensity. Floral/Tropical aromas with a bit of sweetness.
T - Follows the nose, although the sweetness is a bit more pronounced here. Something like candy. The hops are still dominant. A fairly firm bitterness comes in on the back end.
M - The one major weak spot for me. I love a good medium+ bodied IPA. It would be a stretch to call this light/medium. It is very thin and even a little slick. Finishes clean and slightly dry.
O - Nice beer, if difficult to rank across the various categories. If I had regular access to this I would buy it, but not terribly frequently.
