22 oz bottle- Pours golden orange with a one finger pillowy white head that leaves a ring of nice lace. Aroma is sweet malt and spicy hops. The taste is sweet light malt, well balanced, hops are there imparting a mild dry finish, not really getting any usual citrus and maybe a little pine. Body is medium and carbonation is medium. Not bad.

Prufrockstar (1994) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Can. Pours hazy amber with creamy head, white in color, leaves behind no lacing. Floral aroma, some pine, a little dank. Caramel as well. Taste is good and bitter, with enough sweetness up front to keep it in check. Medium full body, texture on the thick side, average carbonation. Overall - a totally solid ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
