Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 1 pint can on August 25, 2017. Look is dark amber. Smell and taste is dank hops and sweet caramel malts. Feel is medium in body. Nothing special.

Not bad. A bit too bitter and not mellow. Probably not going with this one again

16oz can, drank from the can
Crack of the can releases a bouquet of hops: pine, grapefruity citrus, fresh hop pellet, along with some honey and caramel malt. Heavily hop forward with pine and spruce dominating the palate; grapefruit rind and pith, a bit of orange and mango; caramel malt and honey provide a weak malt backbone and mild residual sweetness. Feel is sticky and oily, fuller body, finishes very bitter and quite dry. Not a bad IPA. Definitely hop forward with some pretty good flavors, but needs to be better balanced in my opinion.

Aroma is very caramelly, bready, toasted malt, with sharp notes of grapefruit and orange adding contrast.

Flavor is on the sweet side initially, very bready, with a resiny, piney, fairly bitter finish. More bitter than I prefer.
