Had a buddy bring me back a can. Pours amber with a slight haze. The aroma has more stone fruit while the flavor dives into citrus. It's tasty and pretty drinkable for an IPA.

Comes out an opaque golden honey colour. Thicky thicky thicky thick. Small off white head that settles in to a veneer of interlocking rings and isolated plots of bubs. Beautiful lace adorns the sides.

Nose is a bit of a let down. Grassy grainy sweetness and some sort of round juice to it. Underwhelming.

Flavour salvages some of the prior promise. Starts thick and a touch of caramel sweet which barely opens its eyes before being tumbled down upon by floral and bitter hops. Earthy pine and sweet floral and citrus hops with a grassy touch to mellow the back end. Finishes nice and bitter.

Thick body with flavours that wash across the tongue with appropriate carbonation that corroborates the evidence.
Overall a solid IPA. Thick and bitter and enjoyable. Thanks bottle shop IN the airport!!

Picked up a growler from Mooses Tooth. Nice citrus and pine smell. Pours a dark gold with little head. Taste has a bite to it and the hops hits in the back. There are flavors of citrus and somewhat of an apple taste (maybe). One of the best IPA's out there.
