Hazy darker amber color with a thick head with medium retention.
Nice sweet aroma with notes of biscuit malt, sweetened grapefruit juice, caramels, mild pine and peaches.
Sweetness from the aroma did not show up in the mouth (which is good). Bitter flavor with notes of pine, grapefruit, spices, slightly toasted malts, earthy and citrus hops, resin and tea bags. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Nice citrusy, tangy and balanced IPA, quite hoppy, but sure it does not neglect malt. So it depends how you like your IPA.

12oz can poured into a tulip. No dates or codes, just a red dot on the bottom which is probably meaningless.

Pours fairly hazy with a medium-small white head, lots of carbonation. Smell is flowers, citrus. MIld.

Taste is kind of confused. Some kind of soapy flavor, some mild citrus, some vague spicy bitterness. Slight syrupy sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly still. Overall, it's not bad, but it's not that great.

12 oz can poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass

Color is a light amber with a two finger creamy white head that dissipates gradually. Decent lacing.
Smells is very fruity with orange rind as the main aroma that distinguishes itself.
Flavor is more subdued than the smell. There are some citrusy hops with a crisp bitter finish.
Feel is medium with good carbonation.

Overall, a nice IPA that I would be happy to drink again.

12 oz single purchased from Capital Market in Salem. $1.70 Pours a slightly murky dull orange colour with a nice sized thick and frothy off white head. Fruity, citrus aromas mainly with some light caramel malt backing,citrus hops resemble orange peel and some lemon zest. Actually OK. Taste the hops are more aggressive away from the citra and to the cascade and Chinook..malts still strong but barely contain the exuberance of the hopping. Nice mouth feel the raucous carbonation leads to great drinkability.Very nice can of beer here!

From a 12 ounce can.
Hazy gold with two fingers of off white head and good lacing.
Smell is mildly bitter resins.
Taste is medium resin bitterness with just a touch of malts.
Mouthfeel is light to medium.
Overall a medium level IPA. Nothing bad to report but mostly average. Hops are flat line pine bitterness with nothing all that interesting.

can picked up locally...not dated, but these hit town not too long ago. although age is always suspect on an alaskan can in NY.

a - murky orange with frothy oily head that left big chunky lace on the glass. thin soft bubbly head hangs.

n - overripe citric punch...fairly resinous. big malt match giving it almost a barleywine beefiness.

t/m - opens with a pine cone bitter wash, soft and even...followed by the resinous citric hop. the bitterness is even and throughout the palate. leaves a coat of tangy piney bitterness in my mouth. the toffee malt is also equally big and the body is full making it feel bigger than it actually is. not a bad brew, wish i knew how fresh this was...but more of a one off than a regular 6'er type of beer for me.
