Can thnx to Dan !
Drank from the can , no info on the pour .
Smell is hoppy , floral , balanced intensity , pine , sweet , some spices ( ? )
Taste is bitter , pine , intence yet light mouthfeel . Good carbonation . Bitter and malty back . Balanced , but perhaps a bit too thin and common . Very nice tjough !
Edit - never looked at the abv . Drinks like an DIPA , so expected this to be like 8-9 abv . At 6,5 , this is quite damn nice , so a well deserved 4+ !

Pours deeper amber into the glass with a decent head. Aroma is really nice bringing a conglomeration of sweet and piney hops, pine forward. The flavor is definitely piney hops that build and lay like residue on the tongue, but nicely! It is definite more bitter than normal, but good.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a great beer. Aroma is solid and the it’s hop forward without any cloying sweetness that ruins lots of IPA’s in my humble opinion. Would love a little citra pop in there but some of my favorite hop shining through and was glad to have picked up a six pack. 3 down/3 to go :) Great Job CBC!!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can best by 9/28/2014. Drank from Sam Adams Glass. Appearance is golden with light orange hue and hop haze. Aroma is clear pine + citrus with notes of tropical from the Amarillo. This aroma is really persistent. Substantial hop taste of grapefruit fades to a smooth bitterness and a dry finish. The smooth dry finish and the persistent aroma are the strengths of this beer. This is not a balanced beer, but if you are drinking an American IPA, and you are looking for a great example that clearly and cleanly shows hop aroma and taste, then this beer is a great example.

Fairly standard IPA appearance, maybe a bit more yellow and less copper than most. Aroma also good but unexceptional, standard piney/floral IPA stuff. The flavor is where this really shines. Multilayered citrus/flora/pine IPA flavors, lots of lemon. Some sweet caramel malt provides a solid foundation to it all before yielding to a bitter pine aftertaste. Refreshing mouthfeel that avoids stickiness. The name welcomes comparisons to the more famous floral-themed Northeastern IPA, and this drink definitely matches.
