look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

16oz. can poured into a Duvel tulip (best by 7/12/13)

A: It is a nice bronze amber that is quite cloudy with suspended sediment throughout. There was no head upon the pour and barely a small floating circle of a film. Lacing is almost nonexistent.

S: It smells of citrus and grapefruit, but overall it is quite faint. I am actually get hints of like a lambic or a geuze, maybe even cider notes. It is a fairly tame smell but it is quite pleasant.

T: The taste is mellow as well. There is no dominating flavor, but there isn't really too much complexity either. It is piney with a bit of resin, but these notes simply flavor the overall profile. I can't place the exact flavor, because it is so muted and of a monotone nature. The aftertaste is quite mellow too, it is a nice warm pine flavor that is very nice.

M: It is smooth with some pockets of carbonation that you feel on your tongue and in your mouth as you take a sip.

O: This is definitely not world-class, nowhere near. Not as strong as RESIN in all aspects, but also not as single-minded. It is a decent IPA that comes in a can, which seems to be its main selling point. I can't say that I am a fan really.
