Straight from the can (forgive me). Aroma, well, you don’t get much from the can. I can live with this, since I’m guessing it’s citrus and hops. Flavor, well I can taste the beer-- dank hops, quite heavy in the mouth, with an amazingly well balanced malt character (biscuity). Bittering and long lasting at the end. Fairly high carbonation as well. This is a really well balanced IPA that has the mouthfeel and ABV of a DIPA-- but is very drinkable.

A poor man’s sculpin. Good flavor, hops and citrus are well balanced, but pine is a bit too intense for my liking. Medium carbonation.
The Pine really sticks around and lingers somewhere between bitter and sour.

Pours clear copper with a medium beige head, excellent retention. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, caramel, biscuit, tropical fruit, grass. Medium body, creamy, good carbonation, somewhat dry. Lightly sweet, medium bitter fades into a lingering light bitter finish with some light herbal notes. Very pleasing IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a very dense IPA, malts are packed in with soft fruit and molasses with very resiny hops, earthy, bitter. A hint of dank. Heavier in the mouth than you might want.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour. Hazy golden-amber color with thin head. Weak floral and citrus nose. Taste of orange peel, apricots, pine needles, and light notes of sweet malt. Decent weight for an IPA. Builds into a nicely balanced hoppy aftertaste which, combined with the weight, makes this pleasantly sippable. If I had to describe it in a single word I’d go with "balanced"; There’s no glaring flaws or unbalanced flavors here, but I’d almost call it TOO plain and inoffensive. Can’t complain too loud at the price I got it at though, since unlike Sculpin this won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Would probably buy again if the store didn’t have anything hoppier.
