12 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours very haze deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness.Moderate pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, grapefruit, lemon/orange rind, pine, honey, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

12 oz. can. Had the first couple ounces in a mason car. Rest out of can.

Appearance: Pours a mostly clear copper with a foamy head with retains well.

Aroma: Smells of pine and citrus.

Taste: Follows nose, with a nice malt backing. Grapefruit is the dominant flavor.

Mouthfeel: Has some alcohol burn, but isn't overpowering. Dry finish, medium body.

Overall: Rock solid IPA.
