16 oz can with a 6/30/17 canning date. Poured into Teku glass.

L: Partly hazy deep amber. Big head on aggressive pour, good retention, leaves lots of foamy lacing and a cap and ring.

S: Orange and orange rind. Piney dankness. Prominent caramel malt. Suggest we call this style Midwest IPA. It's different than NE or West Coast, but quite good.

T: Caramel malt and citrus vie with each other up front, hops last longer into midpalate and to piney finish. Very slightly bitter. Pretty good and not a lot different from what I had on tap despite 10 weeks of age in can.

F: On the light side of medium-bodied. Moderately carbonated. Construction and balance are quite good. Would not call crisp and refreshing but still easy drinking.

O: A very solid IPA.

16 oz can, thanks Bro- Pours autumn chestnut red with a large off white head that reduces leaving cobwebby lacework and minimal head. Aroma is spicy hops, pine, rye bread. The taste is caramel malts, bitter hops, piney, biscuity rye bread, more of a red IPA, solid beer.

Cloudy orange-brown body with a tawny, coarse head that leaves no lace. The nose is based mostly on caramel malt and husk aromas, with a bit of orange juice and pith and some unidentifiable bitterness, similar to noble hop aromas. The flavor is also mostly malt, a coarse, raw, dry kind of malt. The hop flavors are restricted to the basics of orange varieties; any kind of other fruits, skunkiness, pine, earth, or anything else interesting are absent. It is much more bitter than sweet, which isn't to say it is either bitter or dry. The body is medium-full, carbonation has disarmed itself to a pleasant prickle.
I like that a 16 ounce 6.6% can was in my local mix-a-six, apart from that this seemed to be just another brew. Nothing either offensive nor ingenious about it. Balance was great, flavors lacking complexity but ok, body was nice, appearance passable. Sure.
