The carbonation was heavy when I opened the can. So much carbonation forced a head, which is fine. Head was white to off white in color and mostly dissipated quickly. Beer color was deep golden, just enough to allow light through. Nose is hoppy, but more floral than citrus. Taste was more like old school IPAs, more hoppy bitterness than citrus, but I like it. Follow up allowed flavors to meld and the hops to grow then gently subside.

Yum yum yum. I like this beer. Nice warm golden color with a nice head with a nice flor. Hoppy but not overwhelming, the flor lingers on the back of your tongue. I would drink this beer again!!

Can to nonic pint glass. No date. The appearance was a soft hazy burnt yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated to a foamy lumpiness of lace. Light stringy rings weave around the glass. The smell has a nice floral to bitter sticky citrus to slight piney hops. The taste combines the sweet with the bitterness of the pine nicely. A dry citrus aftertaste leads to a quick dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed good for the style and for me as there’s enough bitterness from the hops to still allow the level of harshness to be good for the style. Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that I could have again.
