A- Pours a murky burnt orange with two fingers of fluffy head that clings after each sip.

S - Citrus, hops, orange peel, piney.

T - Grapefruit, bread dough, malts. Opens hoppy enough, but then falls flat and finishes one note.

O - Meh - not bad, but doesn't stand out at all.

Look - poured from 12oz bottle into an oversized wine glass. Pours a hazy dark orange with 2 finger offwhite head with fairly good lacing

Smell - lots of hops, lots of sweet grapefruit. Almost ruby red

Taste - Hops all the way

Feel - medium

Overall, a very nice IPA with great fruity scents and lots of hoppiness, Very refreshing

Pours a hazy light amber. I like the fact that it comes in a can but the taste here just don't work for me. It has a bitterness that is just not balanced by the malt. and while I do like a bitter IPA this one just doesn't work for me.
