Served in can. Poured into shaker pint glass.
Appearance - Hazy, deep golden, with a tint of bronze. Head is a fluffy white with light lacing that slowly trickles down.
Smell - Initial: Bright floral with a light malt backing. I kept getting a hint of grapefruit out in front with floral aromas. Midway: Finding some caramel notes mixed with floral scents. It's enjoyable.
Taste - Initial: Light and smooth with a gentle crispness. The light malt balances well with the floral hops. Hops stay present through the somewhat dry finish. Midway: Best part of this beer I think. The beer has warmed a little bit and the hops seem to have awakened. Earthy notes are balanced well with the floral flavors with that dry finish.
Mouthfeel - Dry, medium mouthfeel.
Overall - Wish I had more than three. This is my second helping of this beer and I really enjoyed it. Definitely an IPA I'd keep stocked in the fridge if I could ready and easily procure it. Easy to drink with well balanced flavors and bitter hops at the finish. Leaves you wanting more without feeling weighed down.

Aroma was not especially noteworthy. However it wasn't bad either. Bottomline it was okay. Flavor was very good though. I enjoyed the slight but not overpowering bitterness. Mouth feel was not add full as I preferas out seemed a little watery. However it was the one I decided to have when it came time for a point with

Fluffy, creamy white head, leaving a big ring of what will surely be crusty/dried head by tomorrow morning. Hazy golden through the pint glass.
Not a huge IPA in the nose, which is actually refreshing for a chance. Wafts of floral and citrus, like violets and fresh oranges, illuminate the nose to what should be a really good beer.
A bit bracing in its vegetative bitterness, with less of what the nose might lead you to believe is here. In fact, any florals here are very secondary, with only the possibility of orange rind being a citrus component.
Vegetative and heavy on the tongue, like masticated leaves. Something to be desired here.
Nice for a different take on IPA, especially here in the summer, but not to enjoy in the long-term.

Big white head slowly falls above a cloudy washed out straw golden colored beer.
Light aroma of slightly sour grains and even less hops presence but I think it's noticeable.
Very light almost sourish taste with a slight hops bite following.
A lightly dryish aftertaste on a lighter bodied IPA.
Very light hops for a IPA, maybe that's what a mid-American IPA is.
