Clear copper with a creamy beige head. Spongey uneven walls of lacing.

Aromas of caramel malt, butter, and piney, candied grapefruit.

Flavors of toffee and nuts, with a sting of mildly bitter hops, grapefruit rind, and dandelion.

At first seems like a wet finish, but it dries up quite a bit in no time.

12 oz can with both best before and canned on dating...nice n fresh and thanks for the information.

Pours a warm shade of near ruby Amber, about medium hazed...frothy light khaki cap, leaving loads of all the way to the top of the glass sheeting, and a coating blotchy film ....nice looking beer.

Soft/faint herbal hop nose

Enjoyable if non descript IPA, softly hoppy, not assertive, perhaps approachable is the operative word here....decent if not overly exciting
