12 oz can poured into a pint glass. A: Pours an amber color with tiny specks of yeast floating around. The head is a creamy two finger offwhite shade. While retention isnt the greatest, I love the texture and the lacing it leaves behind. S: The hops have faded a bit on this one, but it still provides hints of pine and grapefruit. Theres a lot of caramel and toffee malt featured here, as well. Decent aroma here. T: I first notice some minor piny hop flavors to start, before it washes away with a lot toffee-esque malt. The finish is earthy with touches of fruity esters (unheard of in an American IPA, it seems); to the point where one could mistake the back end for excess booziness. The earthy nature of the malts arent my cup of tea, but its okay otherwise. Seems to be a bit more complex than many others in the style. M: Its well attenuated for all of its maltiness, creating a fairly dry brew in spite of the faded hops and creamy feel. There is a bit of lingering sweetness on the front of the palate, which is expected. O: Gotta love a canned IPA, even if this one isnt fantastic. Ill have to give this a second chance fresh.

CacheManyHose (648) - HONG KONG - OCT 24, 2016
Can from Safeway poured into a tumbler. Drank in SF whilst staying at the Beacon. Clear dark orange with small white head. Smells of quite strong caramel malt, bubble gum esters, moderately piny and spruce/grass hops. Body is oily, touch of malty/doughy sweetness, mostly bitter, light carbonation. Decent, good malt/hop balance (though malt is a bit strong/doughy in the nose).
