12oz can poured into a snifter. Pours a light straw color, very clear with a 2 finger off white head. Nose is light hop - a clean pine and citrus. Wonderfully bright, clear nose. Flavor leads with the same bold hop presence. Very dry, with a finish that is perhaps a bit more malty than I find ideal. Mouth feel is light-medium. Overall, a strong, drinkable beer. A wonderful $10 6er.

L: nice golden brown. Honestly, doesn't look like much but it is not translucent at all. A very thick looking beer.
S: Very hoppy. A little citrus aroma and a slight oaky texture in the smell
T: very smooth at first. A little fizz but not too much.
F: amazingly smooth. Served in a chilled Belgian ale glass. The citrus is immediately tasted and hoes down easy
O: great beer. Only $3.95 at the bar. Worth it 100%

Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep good color with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains a very good blend of floral hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a strong floral hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and provides an excellent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Very crisp and extremely smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, excellent representation of style, this is definitely one of the better IPA’s that I’ve had.

Pours a slightly hazy, dark golden amber color with copper colored edges and a one finger white head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Decent retention with sporadic streaks and spots of soapy lacing left behind.

Earthy floral hop aroma with juicy buds and earthy resins countered by sweet tropical/citrus fruit and a sweet caramel malt backbone. Fresh cut grass, kind buds and sticky resins countered by some grapefruit, pineapple and citrus rind. Incredibly fresh and dank smelling. Sweet malt backbone with caramel, bread, biscuit and toffee. Great freh hop presence in the nose.

Full body with a blast of dry, earthy bitterness that's countered by sweet tropical fruit hop notes and a prominent caramel malt backbone. Dry and sticky wih earthy resins, grassy pine and spruce tip but the strong malt backbone comes in mid palate to balance things out. Tart grapefruit along with some orange zest and faint citrus. Caramel and toffee sweetness with biscuit and dark bread. Malt is a bit stronger than I prefer but it's nicely balanced and easy to drink with decent hop character.
