Pours a light copper with a nice head just a bit higher than a finger. The malt presence in the nose is as noticeable as the hop presence. The flavor profile is also quite balanced. There is also an odd note in the flavor that is hard to place.

Pale straw yellow with a giant eggshell colored styrafoamy looking head three inches high and not receding at all. Seems overcarbonated, as it was rising up out of the can on its own before I even tilted it toward the glass.

Floral and grainy aroma, some yeasty phenolics. This either uses a belgian or saison yeast, or had an unclean fermentation. Flavor seems to match the aroma, with the addition of some vanilla and a peppery bite. Floral hops are understated. Thin mouthfeel despite all that CO2. Finishes dry. This seems more like a slightly hoppy wit or saison or belgian pale. Not a great IPA.

Picked up a 6 at wf in nyc. Was looking for something local and this was the only thing i could find. Since the hotel had no glasses i drank it old school...from a can. This is a nice session ipa. Refreshing, citrusy, and a little piny but the ibus are probably to low for an ipa...maybe more of an apa...

The can says "all malt;" I like malt; so it's pretty good.
