I've now consumed two of my six pack of cans. The first poured into a glass, the second straight from the can.

It tasted great straight from the can. But how can I talk appearance?? The new can-art is fantastic, the angry Mount Rushmore visages.

Anyway I digress. It poured a nice golden orange with an inch and a half of white foam that receded slowly leaving some lacing.

Scent was grapefruit citrus/lemon-pine hoppy and subtle, lighty malty.

Hops hit the tongue with a one-two-three jab of grapefruit, orange and pine. The body holds up well with a caramel/malt base. Mouthfeel is medium and just a bit chewy. Finish is pleasantly bitter. Nice.

Good hoppy stuff in a glass or straight from the can.

I poured this one from a 12 oz. can into a 12 oz. glass. The generous head sticks out of the top of the glass but does dissipate rather quickly. There is some moderate lacing on the side of the glass. The beer presents a few large bubbles. The color is orange with a slight haziness. It looks very much like real honey. Can I spread this beer on my toast? But wait. This IPA already has a heavy bread character. I am reminded of the fresh Country white bread that my grandmother used to make. The beer has slight buttery qualities. There is also a flavor of marmalade and oat. This IPA is really well balanced. The malts stand out with exemplary character and are backed by a good dash of both spicy and citric hops. This is a very unusual beverage that is much easier to drink than your average pine bush flavored IPA. I really enjoy this full bodied beer which dissolves slowly in my mouth and finished with a slightly delicious caramel and orange aftertaste. It taste like breakfast in my mouth. An excellent beer which may be appreciate by some IPA drinkers who are afraid of hops. My only criticism would be that the malts overpower the hop aromas (perhaps there isn't much there). A good solid beer.

A very good, refreshing citrus/piney IPA.
