I've had this a few different times, poured from the can into a Perfect Pint glass. Pours a muted hazy yellow with a very creamy head.

The aroma from this beer is really great- potent, dank, vegetal, like damp woods. Some fruity scent in the background.

The flavor for this batch is why I decided to review. It's only a couple weeks old, but the flavor is not what I remember. It's much more potent, much less juicy, and full of bitter, tangy, veggie-like flavors. A touch of onion and more bitter fruits- grapefruit and lime, and some real dankness. It's flavorful for sure, I'm just not sure these are *good* flavors.

Hey, I love Lamplighter's beers, and this brew is loaded with flavor. I'm concerned that the profile has seemed to change a bit in the number of times I've tried it, but perhaps it's chalked up to hop variances or something. Whatever, this beer, like all Lamplighter brews, is worth trying.

Poured from a 16oz can into a speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a slightly amber yellow with a full offwhite head.

Aroma is sweet juicy hops.

Taste is more of that juicy fruity mango a ton of bitterness to balance it out.

Nice take on a bitter NE IPA.
