Poured from a 12oz can into a tulip glass. Packaged on 7/1/14. Hint: This was NICE and fresh (love those cans). Looked slightly hazy, with 2 fingers of off-white head. Nice light amber color. The aromas were excellent (4.5/5 for me!)... pine, grapefruit, some elusive floral hints, goodness... I smelled this beauty when I cracked the can (so glad there is another in the fridge!). Taste was also spot on. There was the nice floral hit (kind of new to me in IPAs), nice even bitterness, and not malty, or heavy... nice and refreshing (even at 7.2). Really nice balance of flavor all around. The finish was clean and crisp, and it was relatively light on the palate. Overall, what can I say... it is a winner. Hope these cans become more readily available in Western PA. This would be a fridge stocker for me.
