DATE: July 23, 2016... OCCASION: a great pool day concludes with the end of Season Four of Game of Thrones... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky Tavern pint... hazy, orange amber body displays a sensible carbonation... the two-finger thick white head sits confidently and creamily atop the body with dense clouds of lacing... melon, pineapple, citrus and flowery aromatics engage the senses agreeably--the crisp bread malts suggest balance, with the strength of an IPA... a strong, well-bodied ale, with a convincingly sweet aftertaste... caramel and bread form a substantial backbone for a beer with hoppy strength, slight spruce and grapefruit, melon, and pineapple--indeed, a worthy banquet of a beer... this one was worth tracking down, as it satisfies from start to finish, with a strong, lively, creamy body, a round array of citrus and malt, and a flavorful finish,,,

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.
