A: Pours a very lightly hazy medium to dark copper in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate ruby red + burnt orange colored highlights. The beer has a three finger pillowy sudsy foamy very light beige head that slowly reduces to a large patch of medium thick film (covering about 70% of the surface) surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit pith, pine, tropical/mango, herbal, and spicy hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + caramel malts with a hint of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of biscuit + caramel malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of citrus/grapefruit pith, pine, tropical/mango, herbal, and spicy hops which imparts a moderate amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Initially slightly crisp.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a really nice combination of hop flavors + aromas with a solid enough malt backbone. A classic West Coast style IPA and really enjoyable - I could easily have a couple of these.

Can dated 12/7/17. Pours a cloudy amber color with a thick foamy head. There is a bite too much carbonation because it foam came out when I opened the can. Head retention and lacing are both excellent. Slight citrus aroma with some honey, maybe caramel and a piney resin. Nice smooth taste. There is some citrus, honey, caramel and bitter piney resin. Medium bodied with moderate to heavy carbonation.

Bought it bottled at the local bar.
Look: dark amber and wood, feeble foam disappearing in couple of minutes
Smell: pleasant honey and flowers
Taste: very bitter with flowerish notes.
Feel: light carbonation and oily structure.
Overall: unfortunately, this is not my style. Nose is way better than mouth.

Serving: 500 ml can (stamped best before "12/07/17"), poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Appearance: Slightly hazy amber gold with a towering head of thick, white, soap sud bubbles. Fantastic sticky lace.

Smell: Pale malt grain, grapefruit rind, hints of caramel and dank hops.

Taste: Solid malt body - both grainy and sweeter caramel - along with plenty of grapefruit, citrus rind, pine resin and some earthy hops. Hints of spicy, fruity Belgian hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: Solid IPA with good balance of juicy citrus hops and malty body along with some subtle Belgian yeast spice.

Love the pine taste. Reminds me of Fresh Squeezed.

Pours an opaque, slightly hazy amber with a nice full frothy heady that leaves sticky and tacky lacing - very appealing. Resin, orange zest, citrus aromas dominate. Smooth balanced malt and hop, highly drinkable, smooth finish, creamy mouthfeel. Excellent balanced IPA.
