Can > Mason Pint

A - Hazy light amber with two fingers of dense frothy off white head, thick lacing.
S - Tons of pine, some light floral notes, very dank and resinous, some sweet orange juice in there, grapefruit, bread malt.
T - Massive bitterness, lots of pine and grapefruit, citrus bite, orange, malt doesnt really make an appearance as much as the onslaught of bitterness, but its good stuff.
M - Very mild feel outside of the bitterness, there's a little malty chewiness to it, but the alcohol doesnt make a large presence as well.
O - Good stuff, glad to have picked up a 6 of it.

Smells fruity and piney.

Tastest citrusy, SUPER piney, bitter. A kick in the teeth of hops. With a resiny, sticky finish that lasts FOREVER like an awesome American IPA should. It reminds me of Stone Go To IPA with a little more body. Pardon my Stone reference, but I've been trying to find an IPA like Go To and this is the closest one yet. LOVE it.

Awesome IPA. Tropical fruit and pine notes.

Pours a darker yellow almost red color. Super duper piney smell. Very unique smell beyond the normal IPA smell. Very hoppy taste on the front end. Get a ton of pine and a little fruit. There is something there that I don't get with other IPAs. Easy finish and a smooth taste all the way through. I really enjoy this one and I don't get to have it that often.
