Poured into a pint glass.
A-Fantastic head, 1 1/2"+ orange tinted, sits atop an orange/amber beer. Slow and steady carbonation. Small specks float within: tiny hop particles. Excellent lacing all down the glass. Very, very appealing.
S-Nice hop aroma, fresh citrus and pine. Malts smell good, too: this is one fresh-ass beer.
T-This is great! Cascade hops rule here over the nobles, brisk on the tongue. Nice bitterness, not a hop-bomb, but a well made glass of hoppy freshness. I can't get over the fact that this beer came from a can. This was delicious even at room temp. Solid. Fresh. Wow.
M-Sea Hag has a nice body.
D-Are you kidding me? Session city.
CRUX: IMPRESSIVE STUFF, REGARDLESS OF THE CAN. If this was available near me it'd be a go-to beer; the DBF would be so loaded with it, I'd have to get an ADBF (auxillery designated beer fridge.) Best canned beer I've ever had. Nice job, NEB Co!
Thanks to Lagrin for the sample.

3.85/5 rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Served from can into a highball glass (I had it at a hotel...)
A - Pale yellow body with notable haza. A fizzy off-white head forms on top and dissipates quickly.
S - Very floral and grassy. I pick up dandelion and slight tangerine.
T - Similar to the flowery nose, but a bit more orange and lemon flavors pop up. The malt has some cracker characteristics with a hint of sweetness. Otherwise a fairly dry-tasting IPA. A semi-bitter finish.
M - Light to medium body with a somewhat dry mouthfeel. The carbonation is middle of the road, which fits the style.
O - A good, but not great, IPA. The floral nature of the hops is refreshing, but doesn't really invite you back for another sip all that much. But worth a try, for sure!

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.
