12oz can a few weeks old - received as an extra in a trade

A- pours a murky, cloudy reddish mud color - not the best start, but a good head with heavy lacing
S- Citrus hops with a hint of stone fruit sweetness
T- Smooth malt with a kick of hops. Not sure but there is a slightly unusual almost metallic edge to the aftertaste bitterness. Not my favorite
M - decent body, but not noteworthy.

Overall not entirely sold on this. It is good, and I am glad i tried it, but a harshness to the hop profile wasn't my favorite.
