Poured into my Affligem goblet. Nice 1/2 to 1 inch head with some ridges that dissapated in about one minute (not as much staying power as I hoped). Not much smell until the foam was gone; after that, the piney citrusy smell I was hoping for. Taste is somewhat hoppy and citrusy with some complementing malts. Overall a good IPA taste but maybe missing the complexity of their double dog and CA IPAs. Mouthfeel is almost good. Seems a bit watered down next to the IPAs but not complaining since Cruz Campo is the normal beer in my region. Drinkability is good, don't notice the 7+ABV and I do have at least 5 more to drink.

A: copper with one fingers width of white colored head; head has decent retention and leaves lots of lacing
S: citrus rind, floral hops, faint tropical fruits
T: big bitterness with piney hops, citrus and subtle tropical fruits, malts to balance it out; nice hop profile
M/D: full bodied, appropriate carbonation, drinkability is good
O: well done IPA
Serving type: on-tap

12 oz. can poured into a Flying Dog goblet (no dating)
A: Nice copper body with nice head that recedes rapidly but leaves some lacing and a nice collar.
S: Sweet malt/pine with a great overall hop presence.
T: Light in body but with a solid malt and hop balance that is refreshing and easy-drinking.
M: Small rough bubble carbonation along the tongue.
O: This is great coming out of the can, which helps preserve the hops from the light. I'd rather buy an old IPA in a can over one in a bottle (or at least one with no date). Good enough, but they have better IPAs and beers that I would go after first.
