Can is stamped best by 9/11/11. Poured into a Duvel tulip. Light amber colored body that is slightly hazy and has a touch of orange hue. Three-finger off-white head that has decent retention and leaves some ringed lacing down the glass.

Nice citrus and floral hop aroma. The hops are very prominent in the aroma and include orange, tangerine, grapefruit, and some floral notes. Only a slight note of sweet malt on the backside.

Wow, the flavor is much more bitter than the aroma would have suggested. But that is GOOD! Nice piney and grapefruit hops dominate the flavors. Just a slight amount of malt balance. Great mix of flavors here.

Medium mouthfeel that is nonetheless smooth for an IPA. I'm very impressed with this brew and extremely happy it comes in cans. Will be a regular one for me.

Serving type: can
