Can: Poured alight amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and light lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops undertones is pleasant enough. Taste is a mix of citrusy hops notes, light bitterness with some dry malt presence. Body is about average with good carbonation. Enjoyable standard IPA while not breaking any new ground.

Overall, it's a very bold, piney IPA. The pour is is a golden amber with a modest head. This beer smells of strong pine with some citrus undertones. The taste is strong hops, but misses something in the form of citrus, caramel, etc. It's a decent IPA.

Would not drink again, only tastes of hops, after taste tasted of what your most tasted like after you eat sharp Cheddar cheese.

Fresh from a can into a proper glass ya. Brownish yellow, with a fair amount of carbonation. Minimal lacing and head. Tastes okay, kind of more fruity than happy. Decent American IPA.

Average at best piney IPA. Maybe drinkable if it were a session IPA, but at 7% leaves much to be desired.

12 oz can with a 24 July 2017 canning date stamp.
Pours with a clear amber-copper colored body topped by a moderately durable off-shite head. Foamy with sticky lacing.
Medium-high bitterness for style with above average hop aroma and flavor. Pine notes dominate.
Medium body and prickly carbonation.
Overall: a bold, piney IPA.

A resiny example of the American IPA with subtle malt character but heavy bitterness with resin and pine coursing through the palate. Finishes herbal and earthy from all the resin character. Still dry and an enjoyable IPA although heavy handed in its execution.
