16oz can dated 10/03/17
Poured into a pint glass boasts a yellow gold colored body floating a strong 2+in white foam head and leaving a gradually thinner sheet of lacing an I finish the pint.

Aroma is piney, floral hops with pine up front.

Flavor is floral hoo forward with a slight hint of malt for good measure.

Mouthfeel leans lighter than most ipa's.

Overall a fine example of the style.

16oz globe glass.
Honey colored, minimal lacing. Smells of mild citrus across the board and mild malts. Tastes of mild hops and a puff of citrus flavors. Low carbonation, low bitterness.. very smooth. This is a great tasting PA, and I can't wait to get my hands on a a few more.

Poured from 16-ounce can into a tulip glass. Light golden color, with a thick snow-white head that settled slowly and left plenty of sticky lacing behind. Dank piney and citrusy aromas and flavors, with a lightly sweet malt presence. A little orange juice and grapefruit zest round out the profile. Crisp, dry finish, with just a trace of bitterness lingering on the palate. An excellent "sessionable" pale ale.

16oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Light orange, slightly hazy with tiny bubbles and a two-finger head
S: Grapefruit, floral and herbs
T: Matches the nose with a nice malt backbone
M: Medium-bodied, a nice malt/bitter balance
O: A solid IPA - quite nicely balanced between the hops/malt/alcohol/mouthfeel. Nothing jumps out yet everything is there
