Wow. Forget lace. I may need to rinse my glass before I can get another can in. The color is just kind of mediocre. The head is some serious business. Love it. Mouth feel is 'there' not over the top, but good. Smell is very, very nice. The taste lays on your whole tongue. After taste is almost spearmint. Crazy.

Serving type: 12-ounce can. The canned date on the bottle of the can is “02/04/13.”

Appearance: Poured into a pint glass. The color is hazy, pale gold. Two fingers of thick, creamy, eggshell-colored head dissipated slowly and left trails of foam along the glass.

Smell: Mmmm. Fresh dose of citrus but nothing overpowering. Light grapefruit, orange, and lemon. Caramel and pale malts.

Taste: It offers that sucker punch mentioned on the beer’s webpage; nice bitterness right off the bat. But that is all it seems to be right now. The citrus is tame and I wonder if the trip in my luggage affected it. It is mostly lemon, though there are light flavors of grapefruit and orange. Light caramel, pale malts, and toffee round it out.

Drinkability: Hmmm. I am torn. This was awesome stuff when I bought it in San Francisco last week. Since then, I flew it back to the Midwest and got the flu. My taste buds may not be 100 percent again — or the beer may not be 100 percent.

Labelled as 'Brew Free or Die IPA' on the huge beer board in the brewery bar on 5 Feb 2013 when I had my on-tap beer.

Light golden body with a slight haze, on top a thin white covering.

Hops rule the brew, mini-citrus front to that hoppiness, some malt content in the brew also, just to prevent it becoming a hop bomb sort of beer. The beer was taken during 'Strong Beer Month' and at 7.0% was one of the weakest on offer, it therefore lacked the 'umph' of many others that day and hence my rather average thoughts on this brew.
