Light copper/amber with a thinner lightly creamy white head. It does have good retention and leaves nice soapy sheets of lacing. The aroma is lighter but has good floral and pine qualities to it. The taste is much the same, with more pine hops than floral and a nice background malt sweetness. The malt is barely noticeable but provides a good counter. The body has a nice medium weight to it with a tad too much carbonation.

Pours a clear amber with a 2 finger head. Smells of earthiness, hoppy, and tea leaf. Starts with subdued hop taste, finishes with bitter bite. Thin mouthfeel. It has the bite of super juicy APAs without taste. Strange. Tried to read the date on bottom of can but it was pushed off center to where I couldn't tell. Decent lacing. Wouldn't buy again.

Edit: 04/16 - Had this again from the tap and had a more pleasant experience. Seemed cleaner with a better mouthfeel. Re-rated.
