A: A beautiful dark amber, mostly clear with bubbles throughout. Nonpersistent one-finger head with a small amount of lacing.

S: Hop oils, citrus, pine. More potent than other IPAs, but not quite in the DIPA category. Not fruity or flowery.

T: Hop oils, citrus, clean finish with a little bit of alcohol. Quite reminiscent of Odell Myrcenary. The pine flavor linger at the end, but is fairly mild.

M: Very slightly overcarbonated, but extremely crisp. Alcoholic finish is warm and welcoming.

O: A great canned IPA. Similar to the popular Dale's PA, but with a tad more character and alcohol. Deviates from the floral side of IPAs into the piny category, but overall pulls it off.

Serving type: can

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A= As I drank from the can all I can tell you is that the can was different and very green.

S= Very hoppy spicy smell. I don't know if the aluminum can threw me off or not. Could definitely tell it was an IPA.

T= First taste threw me back a little. To me this was a very strong IPA for the little IBU it had. As it may be a true IPA I had a hard time swallowing it.

M= The finish killed this beer for me. It left a very oily pine cone taste in my mouth that I couldn't get rid of.

O= Not a bad beer for someone else. I like to call myself a Hophead but this beer is not for me.
