Poured from a 12 ounce can into a Shaker pint glass, "canned date" 3-8-16.

APPEARANCE: pours a hazy, copper color with one finger off-white head that quickly dissipated until a thin, broken layer of small bubbles remained, there is heavy lacing on the glass, medium carbonation.

SMELL: very faint to the nose, bread, flowers, pineapple and grapefruit citrus.

TASTE: initially sweet honey then pineapple and grapefruit citrus with a slight piney finish.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a very balanced beer, I enjoyed this and would buy it again, I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a balanced, citrus forward IPA.

L: fairly clear golden amber with a head that dissipates quickly
S: smells hoppy and slightly sweet. Not an overpowering smell.
T: the sweetness that was in the smell was not there. Piney bitter hops with the underlying taste of alcohol.
F: smooth and dry with below average carbonation for the style IMO

O: Not bad. Bought a six pack of it but don't think I'll revisit after those are gone.

Slightly hazy deep golden color with white head. Aroma has a very distinct hop profile with grassy/herbal/heather notes. Taste starts with sweet citrus fruits, gets slightly astringent with herbal notes and finishes with resiny hop bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. It has a really interesting hop profile, quite different from the IPAs I had recently.

Draft at Vinny’s Grill. Hazy golden/orange body, thin airy head. Fairly mild for an IPA. Enough of a sharp bite to put it squarely in the zone for the style. Light citrus notes, slippery, malts sneak in in the background. very well rounded.

One of the last vestiges of the ipa in a 6 pack, this was one of the better ones with large distribution. Amber colored, 1/2" white head. Dry hop aroma was heavier on the pine than most, still some citrus, tangerine and more grapefruit.

Taste had a little crystal malt giving it the color and heft, but still leans hoppy throughout. The pine lasts. Has a great drinkability factor, this isn't one of those 3 oz only beers, you can easily enjoy 36 oz of this in one sitting, without it getting monotonous or whatnot.

Good format though, 12 oz and cans.
