Poured into a pint glass. Beautiful foamy white head, sticky long lasting white lace. Deep golden yellow.

Hoppy on the nose, some pine upfront and a nice floral scent lingering ever so lightly.

First drink, hoppy, bitter and dry. Nice mouth feel with the carbonation dancing on my tongue. Slightly sour pine in the middle, still dry and bitter. Hops and bitter rounded off by a hint of floral sweetness.

This is a pretty good hoppy IPA. Some might find it a little to "dry" but at 6.5 I'd think 2 or 3 would be a perfect number to partake in...a great little bomb.

Straight from the can before kickoff of Super Bowl XLVIII.

This sketch is based on one serving. Wish that I had a few more to base an opinion on, maybe pour one or two to get a full look and sense of the aroma. Otherwise, strong ale flavor that wasn't gravelly or perfumey. Tasted great and well-balanced, crisp finish. I look forward to my next experience with this brew.
