Can. Orange copper color with fast dying head. Aroma is mostly fruity hops with some caramel hints, flavor similar. Overall a good IPA, but I'm not a big fan of bitter.

Great session APA closer to a lower gravity IPA. Had this on draft didn’t have the carbonation it needs but overall I would buy it over and over

355ml can from Beer Culture in New York. Rating from September 2013. Great can, worth the money just for the can, bonus that the beer inside was equally as good.

Hazy dark blonde, papaya and calamansi with a very light pale malt signature. High bitterness perception because the malts are light and pale. Clean yeast ( I might like an English yeast better for this one).

From BA review from 2-15-12 -
Had on-tap; served in a pint glass
Appearance – A deeper golden color with a little bit of haze. The white head that was present upon pouring slowly dissipated leaving a moderate amount of lacing, which for a 4.4 % was of pleasant surprise.
Smell – The smell is of nice hoppy nature. Mainly piney and floral, there are ever so light citrus notes which mix with a very light biscuit and toffee malt backbone.
Taste – The pine and floral hops are the first to come followed quickly by some biscuity malts. The malt backbone then sweetens as some toffee and a bit of citrus hop flavors come into play. These flavors take the taste to its end. Quite a nice transition and refreshing taste.
Mouthfeel - While I would classify it as a light to medium bodied beer, for the light abv. this beer has a much creamier more satisfying body then would be expected. The carbonation seems to suit the body quite nice, leaving a rather satisfying feel on the mouth.
Overall – While not the most potent and definitely not a “warmer”, for the very light abv it is surprisingly very flavorful and delicious. It is a very good brew to sit and sip on summer months while having a nice conversation with good friends (or when making new ones)

To me, it smells almost exactly like its sister beer "Live Free or Die" IPA. Big floral notes, grapefruit, tangerine, pine, fresh hop and caramel. The only perceivable difference is that the malt presence is stronger in this one, which scores it a little higher in my mind. The flavors are nicely pronounced as well: floral, grapefruit, tangerine, pine, caramel, fresh hop, a dash of light pineapple, and a big punch of charred, biscuity malts in the finish. Earthy spice pops out in the aftertaste. Got a new go-to, I do believe.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours out orangey brown with a tan head that lasts almost as long as the beer does. Sweet hoppy aroma that smells akin to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. The flavor adds in loads of sweet caramel along with fruity and orange-flavored hops. Nice and thick, quite the accomplishment at 4.4 abv. The finish is a little too dry, detracting somewhat from the otherwise refreshing beer. All in this seems almost exactly like a good English bitter, but with Cascade hops.
