12 oz can was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Lemony, grassy, spicy, and piney hops followed by caramel and toasted malts.

Taste: Grassy, pine, lemon, and spicy hop glavor with toasted, biscuity, and caramel malts. Lingering bitterness in the rear too.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little chewy, lingering bitterness, light to medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: A nice IPA from CT. Good flavor and worth revisiting.

Nice foamy 1/2 finger head, nice lacing, hazy golden pale color.

Nose light, touch lemon zest, grassy, little spicy and resin, little husky grainy, pretty light.

Taste grainy little cracker doughy toasted malt, then grassy hops, little floral and mild fruity, fair bitterness, some noble hop grassy characters later. Finish little dry crisp, fair bitter grassy noble hops, little malt.

Mouth is med bod decent carb.
