16oz can, super excited to see Flossmoor Station canning their beer now!

Hazed amber body sports a tall foamy ivory head that leaves a thick layer of foam sticking to the glass. Earthy pine, grapefruit & orange zest with caramel malt for aroma. Sweet caramel turns quickly to bitter & pungent pine along with grapefruit zest and pith with a touch of orange. Full body, very resinous with hop oils sticking to the palate creating a bitterness that builds. It's been a long time since I had this one (at least 6 years). Better than I remember and I'll be buying this again.

The aroma is strongly of pineapple/kiwi with some yeast as well. The flavor is similar to the aroma along with a decent maltiness and a mildly tart finish. A unique IPA, the heavy tropical fruit flavor makes it stand out.
