Can into mug
Four finger off- white head
Smells: floral hop, hemp, alcohol
Taste: hop, apricot, piney notes
Mouthfeel: too much carbonation for me.
Overall, try this one. You may like it. The can turned me off at first. But, it adds to the beer's underground persona.
Serving type: can

Appearance: Burnished copper. Head is small and drops to a tiny wispy collar after a few minutes. Touches of lacing. Very clear. Moderate carbonation on the pour.
Smell: Oily, dank and citrusy. Nice backing of pine resin. Huge hits of orange and grapefruit. A touch of pith, and low-grade weed. Malts run a little sweet and give a nice backbone to the hop presence. Some caramel sweetness as well. A touch of roasted malt.
Taste: Same pithy bitterness as the nose with a slightly oily pine needle finish. A building bitterness on the swallow. Orange and grapefruit assert themselves and help to balance some of the more bitter aspects. Malts are a little dialed down from the nose and provide a mild backing sweetness. Touches of mint. Mild roasted character with a bready finish.
Mouthfeel: A little thinner than I like with the style, meaning it runs a little under medium. Carbonation is on point and lends itself to a smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Touch of lingering dryness.
Overall: Definitely a solid IPA in a can. I wouldn't mind having access to this on a regular basis. Looks like Colorado scores another point in the "We make excellent beer" department.
