Clear amber color with a huge thick off-white fluffy head with good retention and leaving laces.
Predominant aroma of pine with toasted malts and a hop citrusy with pepper.
Flavor of toasted biscuit malts, pine, caramels, earthy and citrusy hops, grass and spices. Hints of grapefruits and rye. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with medium carbonation
Interesting IPA, quite unique taste. Very malty, earthy and spicy.

12 ounce can

Pours a clear deep golden with a fine, pillowy off-white head. Retains well.

Smells of fresh, grassy malts over a light biscuit sweetness with notable piney hops.

Flavor is of biscuit malt, on the dry side, with piney fresh hop flavor and medium hop bitterness.

Medium body with soft tingles of carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A very solid IPA with nice flavor and a smooth body. Not exceptional, but above average and worth trying.

This is a really balanced solid IPA. Its got some kind of malt that I really really like, I think I taste rye, and I really love that in almost any beer. It matches well with the hops, which I wouldnt be surprised if they were mostly noble/European variety.
A- Golden color, just short of amber, great head retention. Thin white head, with really nice lacing.
S- I love the smell, this one is so balanced, I think it shows skill from the brewer when you get an IPA that you can actually smell the malt in conjunction with the hops. As noted, mostly noble hops on the nose, some pine too.
T- Solid and balanced. I love the rye flavor! It goes so well with what I can only guess is Hallertau (sp?) or something like it. Maybe EKG? IDK enough about hops yet to be sure, but its not your West coast variety. Very drinkable, not too bitter. Not much alcohol so I could drink several hundred of these in one sitting JK. Really like this beer.
M- Its light bodied, but totally sessionable. I love full bodied beers and this could be just a touch thicker/creamier, but Im not complaining.
Overall, I love the freshness you get out of cans, and I used to buy into the stigma that came along with them. Hogwash. Cans are great. This would be a great beach beer or something of that nature. I dont think Ive had anything from this brewery that I didnt like. Cheers
