Can at home. Thanks Jeff! Copper pour, white head. Aroma is floral, dank pine with citrus fruitiness. Smells amazing for a session. Whoa. Taste is spicy pine, dank, straight up pine needles. Very floral hop bomb. Faintly fruity, high bitterness. Light body, high carbonation. So much flavor in this. Hands down the best Session IPA Ive had to date. Dayum.

Piney, definitely a session, quite light palate. Not much malt balance. Its decent, but certainly not one I need to try again.

Shot (501) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2016
On tap. Golden with a thin head that dissipates to a ring. No noticeable cling. Aroma of piney hops. Sweet malt, slight stone fruit qualities, resiny hops, grassy tones and bready notes. Medium carbonation. Somewhat watery mouthfeel. Not bad.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2016 12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 3/2/2016. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, apricot, citrus rind, pine, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, apricot, citrus rind, pine, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, pine, cracker, bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, moderately sticky/resinous, and lightly grainy/creamy balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very good session IPA. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

355ml can. Plae gold pour, white head. Resinous herbal aroma, smells pretty fresh. Flavor is dry and crackery with some citurs and herbal notes, basic but crushable, nice stuff.

12oz can pours a clear gold with frothy, white head. Nose is just OK, some lemon, some pepper, yeast, biscuit, some odd soap. Flavor is OK, some lemon and soap, a little guava, some grist. Something is a bit off. Finishes watery too.

Tasted from can. Pours a cloudy pale gold with thick white head. Aroma is grapefruit and other citrus notes. Taste is moderately bitter with nice malt backbone. Flavors of grapefruit, crackers, tropical fruit. Pretty good beer for the low ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lemony citrus nose a touch of dust and crackery malt. Hazy light golden thin frothy white head. Lemon citrus cracker a little dusty malt a touch of sweetness. Moderate hoppiness. Soft finish. Hops a little faded. Not bad.
