From a 12 oz can, best by 12/15/17, into a nonic, pours a clear light golden amber and a big fluffy white head with great retention and lacing. The nose and taste are in line: peppery, piney, and some earthy hops on top of caramel and bready malts...a little citrus that lightens it up, too, though oily on the finish. This is a shock to the system after all the juice bombs I’ve been drinking, and the pine kind of dominates. Paired with the earthiness, this seems close to what I used to expect from old-school east coast ipas. Glad I've finally had a chance to try this one...wouldn't turn down another.

Quite piney, a little bit sticky in the mouth feel. Pleasantly bitter, but not super special. Would drink again, but it is not a favorite.

This beer pours a nice golden amber with a heavy stream of carbonation floating in it and a quickly dissipating head. The smell is small but nice with a balance of of floral and citrus tones. As for the taste, it is much like the scent with hops taking the lead and citrus taking a back seat.
