Poured from a 12 oz. can into my favorite IPA glass.
A - Pours a clear golden color, nice head that settles fairly quickly.
S - I'm getting a lot of hops on the nose.
T - Fairly bitter, hoppy, piney, citrus not really coming thru for me, a little malt.
M - Sticky mouth feel.
O - Very enjoyable beer.

If you like simcoe hops you'll love this beer. Normal golden color with slight lacing and good head. Piney floral smell and taste. Great balance with a great amount of carbonation and medium body. Overall well balanced great tasting beer.

TASTE - Hops, nutty, bitter, pine.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - A little carbonation, smooth, creamy, lingering, bubbly, clean, light.

VALUE - $2.00 for 12-oz can. Very cheap, especially for an import.

OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - Very nice, mellow.

Clear yellow with a big white head. Transparent's not appealing to me.

Musty Simcoe hops.

Just as advertised. It is all Simcoe IPA with the faintest sweetness of malt. Single malt, single hop? I dig the single hop where you know exactly what you're getting.

Dry as hell.
