This is an old can dated from September. I should be more careful when buying. Nevertheless it's clearly a fine beer. Its best quality is the look: dark caramel color. Aroma is slightly citrusy and the taste combines the citrus with sweet caramel malts. I like my IPAs on the malty side and this is past it's prime, but without doubt a very good beer. Looking forward to trying it fresh.

After having on tap several times and being underwhelmed, I tried this one again and came away with a more positive review.

Look: Reddish/amber hue with a white head.

Smell: Not overly hoppy and some malt smell is present. More piney than fruity.

Taste: Bitter at first but more malty as it goes down. Very well balanced. The hops and malt do not overshadow each other on this one.

Feel: Smooth, with very little bite on the back-end. Medium-bodied and went down easy.

Overall: For me, just missing on the level of the top-tier IPAs, but still very good. I think the maltiness sets it back a notch for me.
