12-ounce can from Food Lion just across the WV border from Hagerstown MD, a new addition there.

A = honey amber, plentiful lacing and modest rim as it settles down.

S = a bit unusual for an IPA, somewhat medicinal or swampy? Not offputting, just different and unexpected.

T = more pine than I'd expected from their description but typical of the Cascade lone hops they use. Balanced malts.

F = slightly thick on the tongue, residual pine bitters in the finish.

Overall a decent beer from Morgantown WV, home of WVU and I suspect a lot of this beer is consumed locally, there. Great that they chose to go the earth-friendly can mode. Plus, I don't kill myself carrying bottles to the trash!

A decent IPA. Slightly cloudy copper color. Mild hoppy aroma with a similarly mild taste.
