Found this on Growler at a local craft brew store and thought "Loose Cannon on Growler?" - hell yes - exactly what the Dr. ordered for a crazy week.
A: doesn't get much better - great fluffy white head sticks around forever, leaving lace, clear orange with no hint of cloudiness, bubbles rumble forever while I'm drinking it. Great looking IPA
S: Hops, Citrus, Pine, A bit earthy in smell as well possibly even some pepper in there. nice.
T: Bitter, malty, citrus, pepper, Sweet backbone that has a bitterness that lingers.
M: A bit dry and sticky for the finish - very crisp, medium carbonation.
D; All night long - at 7.2% I'm going to feel it but that Growler is going to be empty before I go to bed tonight.
I loved this in a bottle but really love it on draft - so smooth and easy to drink.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Two finger head, clear golden color. Nose is citrusy (orange/grapefruit/pineapple) and hoppy - smells incredible.
Taste is similar to the smell, but the hops are more pronounced. Not overly carbonated. For a triple hopped IPA it isn't as aggressive in the hop flavors as it could be - not for drinking quickly, but definitely more drinkable than some similar beers. Could probably appeal to hopheads and those less enthusiastic about aggressive beers.
Overall a very good beer, one I'd like to keep around. Glad I picked it up on my way back from Baltimore.

On tap in a pint glass.
A- Golden-orange color, big off-white head, fluffy. ample amounts of all kinds of lacing. Bubbly.
S- Piney hop aroma, some citrus and malts.
T- It's malty paired with those piney hops and earthy floral flavor.
M- Big body, thick and resinous. Well carbonated. Long hope bite finish.
O- Big hop profile that is not overly bitter. Better tan I expected.
Serving type: on-tap
