16 oz can of love received from Reino for my Birthday. Poured into a pint for my drinking pleasure.

A: Has a very nice brown to red color going on here. Changes gracefully as the light hits it. Constant carbonation activity during the entire experience. Got a great finger of head that does not want to go away. Big and pillowy. Recedes slowly to thick ring that has some beautiful lacing. Sticks all over the glass. Nice sheeting. This looks almost exactly how I wanted it to.

S: Sweet hoppy goodness. Smells of citrus and floral hops. Grapefruit coming in loud and clear. I smell tangerine. Love it. There is some nice malt coming in. Caramel and toffee. Really sweet but not crazy candy sweet. Just sweet enough.

T: The hops is first in line for path down the palate. They have some nice bitterness to them but are incredibly smooth and sweet. Grapefruit yet again shining. Tangerine is present also, no just teasing in the nose. The malt really comes in on the finish, creating an amazing balance. Caramel sweetness, toffee goodness, bready. This is great.

M: Medium in body. I like this very much. Carbonation is a little high, but makes this brew really refreshing. Goes down very easy. Has some very nice bitterness on the palate. Aftertaste is muted and no trace of alcohol. Dig it.

D: I want a case. This beer is easy to drink, convenient due to the can, and tastes great. Surly knows whats up. Can't thank Reino enough for giving me the chance to finally taste this brew.

Serving type: can
