Clear pale amber with three fingers of off white long lasting head. Makes very impressive lacing.
Smell is some pine and a touch of sweet malts.
Taste is up front pine bitterness with a typical amount of malt for the style.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with minimal carbonation.
Overall a tasty IPA. Be advised that the last pour will dump a lot of particulates some hold back the last bit if you like a clear appearance in your beer.
My can had 6% abv. and 65 IBUs on the label.

Pours from a can a hazy orange color with great retention. Juicy overripe fruit and the bitterness is surprisingly blistering and very long lasting. Has a nice spicy finish. Very good stuff!

Very pale, unfiltered by the looks of it. The aroma is the best part, very citrusy and bright, maybe not as vegetative as some, though. I've had this one many times and the flavor just has rarely done it for me. Fairly bitter without having an explosion of hops upfront. GRapefruit and pine are there...there's just an astringency to it that isn't there in many of my favorite IPA's. Good with food, though. I love that bitterness if I'm having a burger. Mouthfeel is fine, bounces on the tongue and relatively crisp. Overall a respectable IPA that I have had numerous times. but there are many I would grab first.
