Yay cans, thanks to AdamR46 (reddit), no date on the can.

Pours a nice creamy 1/2 finger head that fades at a med pace, fades somewhat slowly with a decent soapy lacing, crystal clear orange nectar colored with a light amber hue.

Nose brings nice hops, an nice fruity aroma, mild papaya and resinous musty passion fruit, mild citrusy clementine like, hint of grapefruit pith and little orange rind, as well as a mild fruity bubblegum, very small hint of grainy malt.

Taste starts with a big bitter hop bite, resinous and a bit musty with more mild passion fruit and grapefruit pith, little fruity bubblegum, little juicy guava and papaya like, mild fluffy malt and little sweetness that tries to balance the big bitterness and hint spicy hop. I even think I get a hint of pear and stone fruit, a little syrupy too. Finish dries and gets quite bitter but leaves a mild sticky feel, little syrupy sweet malt, more dank resinous hop and a little spicy hop bitterness.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb, little syrupy.

Overall not bad, there were some great points in the hops, but it seemed to go to too many different places all at once, too many different hop profiles, but still tasty, malts are a little too syrupy, but a nice balance. Enjoyable.

The Fire Eagle had a nice clear amber pour with a good hop aroma and light body. It was a very smooth IPA that doesn’t overwhelm you with hops but still leaves you with a nice lingering bitterness. While not overly complex it is still a very refreshing and satisfying IPA. I am always looking for a good local beer and it’s great to have another very drinkable local IPA option.

On draught at Pinthouse Pizza.

Poured a pale orange. Tame citrus hops to the nose with a good bitter bite on the tongue. Aroma doesn't presage the taste. A bit oily; light to medium bodied. Toned down and arguably indistinct, but good for starting the evening.
