Thanks to mistofminn for the trade.

A 16 oz. pint can, poured liberally into my pint glass. A hazy copper comes out, with a decent amount of head and lacing. A little bit brighter in color than I was expecting? Maybe the can threw me off.

The smell is an instant smack in the face of pine, grass, and hint of grapefruit. Yep, this earns all of it's 99 IBUs. Right where this should be.

Taste is a little mellower than the nose suggests, although it is still a crash of hops in front. A touch of sweetness at the back end helps balance it out a little bit, which is preferably for an IPA, IMO.

Mouthfeel is a touch on the thin side, but there's enough going on that it's only really noticeable if you're looking for it. Definitely helps it out in the drinkability category, though.

A highly quaffable IPA from a can. I might hang onto one or two of these to have on the chairlift this season.
