12 oz can thanks to my buddy Steve in Dallas. Served up in a Dogfish Head shaped pint.

A: Pours up a nice light amber colored body. Held to the light, a good bit of orange comes out of that amber to brighten things up. Body is clear with a steady carbonation level. The pour built up two fingers of creamy white head. Retention is medium, but it has a huge amount of stick to it. Just sheets the glass all the way down. Good looking IPA.

S: Big and citrusy. Lots of grapefruit and orange zest and meat coming out of here. Its just spot on and very appetizing. Nice floral scent kicking around in here as well. Little bit of pine pops up from time to time. Rounds off with a light caramel malt and sweetness.

T: Pretty much the same as the nose. Citrusy to start. Grapefruit and orange zest, rind and meat. A little bitterness and bite coming out from the hops. Pine is definitely present. Rounds out with the caramel malt notes. Little closer to balanced than hop forward, but still has plenty of hop presence.

M: Medium body wiht a carbonation level that is a little bit on the light side. Its sticky and coating on the palate. Finishes moderately dry. ABV is not noticeable. Aftertaste is all citrus zest.

OA: Very nice and easy drinking IPA. It doesn't have a huge wow factor, just a nice refreshing beer. Minimal gripes: could use a bit more hops bite and touch more carbonation. With that said, I really can't complain at all. If this was available around here, it would be difficult to leave it at the store. Really like it.
