Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Good till April 22nd 2016.

Stunner body color. Super crystal clear, and a big bright red bronze color. Plentiful pinhead carbonation, rising to a simple thin creamy three finger easily foaming head. Big retention, some big bubbles but mostly of tiny swiss cheese like variety, and lots of staying power with a very light tan brown classic colored appearance. Excellent looking brew.

Aroma seems to spark upon the pour, but then seems hard to discover while in the glass. First aroma is a good toasty brown bread crust quality. Woody senses kick in a bit, but are also kind of subtle. Not much of a hop forward brew surprisingly on the aromatics going in, but decent if taking awhile to show itself. Some slight citrus and green earth manages to sneak in just a little.

Palate is interesting. Tangy mid palate with a mix between wood spicy and juiced fruit. Caramel malt like flavors seem to creep in just nicely, with a good amount of dryness and getting almost to a crisp toffee angle. Moderate carbonation, with a feel that manages some hop juiced body but also real nice balance of thick malt without the cloying syrup angle. Clean and fun. More wood like tones and green warmth comes in on the palate over time as well.

A real nice easy take on a fresh hop brew.

A: Cloudy reddish orange color, dense off white head, good lacing

S: Floral and earthy hops, sweet malts

T: Floral, and earthy hops that give way to a good amount of sweet maltiness.

M: Medium feel

I: I reaaly like Terrapins Hopsicutioner and this one reminds me a lot of that one. Really malty with a stiff hoppyness. A definite keeper for me.

Expected quite a bit more than what this beer boasted, nowhere near the " fresh hop" presence I was hoping for...an almost above avg ipa in the end however

The malt presence for outweighed the hops in my opinion. Still, this was a pretty good IPA worth trying.
