12oz. can served in a shaker pint. Pours a copper colored hue with a slight haze to the clarity and a tight, one inch, cream-colored head. Head eventually settles into a fluffy, quarter inch head with delicate, textured swaths of lacing revealed as the brew recedes. Nose expresses earthy/herbal notes with a light citrus quality interspersed. Taste follows nose with a pleasant malty backbone and a light, herbal/medicinal bitterness that lingers between quaffs. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with an even carbonation and a slight acidity. Overall, a very drinkable IPA. I'm very impressed with this beer as a year round offering. Well worth your time.

Good beer.. Might be higher rated.. I need to have it more times to have a definitive judgement on it.. But I like what I'm tasting ..

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a cloudy amber colored liquid from the can; a two inch head sticks nicely and leaves a few squiggles behind

Smell: Rather balanced aromatics with some caramel and stone fruit tones that are offset but the piney, dank elements

Taste: Caramel and stone fruit on the front, with the dank, piney hops building, in the middle; increasingly bitter, after the swallow, with an aggressive finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: An amped up version of their APA, but not something I would consider a West Coast IPA; good for what it is

Thanks, Ljudsignal, for the opportunity
