Can says best by 6 or 8 May 2013. Sweet! Tasted 7 February 2013, reviewed from notes.

Pours a medium-dark amber, clear. One finger of amber-hued off-white head, decent retention and good lacing.

Smell is a pleasant blend of varied hops and clean caramel malts. It's balanced in the nose, with light toasted notes on a solid malt base. The hops ride on top like icing on the cake, bringing a bit of pine and some juicy fruit (not Juicy Fruit).

Taste is clean, clear, and moderately bitter. I'm liking it more and more as I drink it. The malts, mildly sweet, assert themselves, then the hops come rushing through. Great balance.

Mouthfeel is delightful. Medium-light body, medium-high carbonation. Persistent. Spot-on across the board.

A very solid IPA. There are ones I like better, and I'm lucky enough to have a number of them local to me. But there are a whole lot of them that I like less than this. Definitely balanced, but with enough hop presence that I would never forget it's an IPA. I'm impressed, in particular, by the balance and purity of the beer.

Ordered this one on tap at Wings Over Broadway.

A- Beautiful color, amber/copper like color to it with about 1 finger worth of head which dissipated fairly slowly. Moderate lacing was left on the glass.

S- This had a wonderful smell to it, the first whif was filled with a blast of hops followed by some mild citrusy sent such as grapefruit, lemon, and orange.

T- Taste of hops and some citrus with a fairly bitter finish.

M- Moderate to high amounts of carbonation with a medium body which was pretty pleasant.

O- I enjoyed this one, still a bit bitter for me but I am new to IPA's and I'm really starting to like them. Give this one a try if you get a chance.
