On tap in standard pint glasses.

A- Amber color, 1-plus finger white head. Modest lacing.

S- "Sweet" citrus hop aroma ? Yes, that's what I get. Some citrus, grapefruit, pine; all coated in malty sweetness.

T- Tangy citrus grapefruit hops drive the flavor with a sturdy malt backbone.

M-Big full- bodied beer . Chewy. Lingering hop finish.

O- I drank quite a few of these when given the chance. Quite good every time. Very flavorful.

Recommended by local Whole Foods guy. Amazing thick bready head for something that came out of a can, I guess it was glad to get out of the dark. It has maintained an 'island' of thick foam to the end, just like those old Guinness ads. Happy to accommodate you, Mr. IPA.

Looks like a big Belgian but has tons of citrusy hoppiness. Picturesque lacing that I always associate with well made brew.

I'm thinking this is more impressive than on tap & from me that's a difficult admission.

Kudos Whole Foods Guy.
