A huge thanks to woodychandler. My first review from my first trade.
Can (packaged as Brew Free! or Die IPA) poured into a nonic pint.
A- Awesome can art. Lincoln coming out of the Mt. Rushmore about to give a left hook (or is it a jab, hard to tell). A normal pour left a 2-finger, off-white head that sustains at about 1/2-finger for the duration. The body was a clean, golden color just short of copper. Medium-heavy carbonation. Great stick left on the glass. Just a touch clean.
S- Oh so hoppy! They were fresh, floral, and earthy. There's an underlying, sweet malty profile that comes across as a little sugary (not a bad thing). Sweetened cereal, perhaps?
T- That's good. Bold flavors. Good mix of sweet malts and a solid hop punch (though not as hoppy as the aroma would suggest). I get some distinct tropical fruit. Pineapple? Mango? Underlying cereal/grainy malts. Multiple hop characteristics come off as herbal/medicinal, earhty/tobacco, and some citrus. There's a lingering sweetness the more I drink.
M- Hops are biting, but not abrasive. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Sweetness plays a tug-of-war with the drying hops. Does it want to linger or finish bone dry? Ends up in between.
O- This is a darn good IPA. If available in my market, it would be a "go-to." Everything is bold, but works together so nothing is overdone. I could easily put back a couple of these in a sitting.

A-Thin white head. Orange, rich amber body.
S-Nice aroma of citrus and hops. Faint pine.
T-For me, the taste is desirable. A nice balance of hops, citrus, and pine.
M-Crisp, nice dense carbonation in the mouth, medium bodied.
O-This is a very good, middle of the road IPA, in terms of drinkability. Not too light, not too strong. Very drinkable.
Serving type: on-tap
