Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Canned 4? 23rd 2015.

Golden tangerine copper amber body, and very crystal clear. Thick and soapy off white head, realy tall at four fingers with control. Huge staying power, doesn't even want to budge. Plentiful slow rising carbonation keeps flowing, and making this look real good.

There's really not much going on here on the aroma. A faint floral to herbal note of hop it seems but very distant, not even much malt sense of sweetness or depth either. Wouldn't even call it subtle, but very closed.

Palate seems to get a little into more juiced territory, but really plays it safe. Tropical notes and juice mid palate but also some good pine and lime astringency on the finish. Easy malt bill, not sweet but also not very thick either, manages to let the hops take control, but doesn't give much support.

A pretty easy drinking IPA with some almost sessionable feeling character, which sort of takes away from the pleasure.
