16oz can, sample from the brewery.

Lightly hazed amber hue, lacing does a good job sticking around. Overripe tropical fruit, white tea, fresh cut grass, caramel, and orange pulp in the nose. Smooth with a mild crispness. Ample bitterness does not come off to aggressive. Rind, tobacco, grass, hemp seeds, & guava on the palate. Hint of breadiness from the malt, warming alcohol is a bit estery with a floral tone. Hop character is a little dank and juicy, good balance for the style. Job well done.

16 oz can poured into nonic pint no date on can

A: very tiny filmy head, burnt orange in color very hazy

S: very fruity peaches melon a little bit of a grape smell very juicy

T: lots of melon and light peach maybe some cherry then a lot of bitter maltiness

M: fairly light leaning to medium until the gripping caustic malty bitter finish

O: Fairly great beer I think a lot of the biting malts may be because this beer is old but its quite vibrant and juicy at first blush I think this is a winner

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 16 oz can on September 22, 2016. Look is hazy amber with an off-white head and sticky lacing. Smell is tropical, citrus, grass and tea with caramel malt aromas. Taste is orange citrus, guava, grass and herb with sweet and bread malt flavors. Feel is medium in body that has some crisp bitterness up front but finishes pretty smooth.
