presario (4708) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2009
Full can. Dark amber. Good white head. Rich aroma full of hop resin; chewy citrus scent. Delecious! Thick rich resinous hop flavour. Spruce, wood and citrus.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Cloudy yellowish color with a sparse head. The aroma has some sweet floral and light citrus hops to it. The taste is very well balanced and smoothly bitter. The finish is fantastic, a nice refreshing floral and light fruit burst.

trevor211 (1338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Pour from the can - golden orange with a decent, dense head. Tons of citrus hops on the nose, but it isnít acerbic - itís actually a pretty sweet aroma, with more mandarin than grapefruit or pine resin. Really nice on the nose. Flavor is... not bad. Actually tastes a little like pine. It isnít too bitter, but the hops just donít shine in here - seems a bit stale, and there are some odd lactic / funky notes that make me think this was a bad batch. Infected? Not sure. If so, itís still not bad. If not, this just isnít that great.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 6, 2009
12oz can at Alchemist in JP. Pours a copper color with a small white head. Nose is like a pine forest, very sticky and syrupy and resiny. Plate is full and sticky as well. Flavors are caramel, piney, resiny, sticky hop notes and sugars.

malrubius (1855) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 6, 2009
12 ounce can in goblet. Pale hazy orange with nice dense head and lace. Fruity piney yeasty hop aroma with a touch of bandaid. Mildly fruity sweet nondescript flavor with decent fresh hop resiny dry finish. Not bad. Failrly mild. Well-balanced.

italarican (1484) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2009
Poured a slightly hazy bronze with a bit of white head. Moderate level of floral hops in the nose, with some citrus to boot. Tastes like IPA: citrus, hoppy, and a bit of pine. Moderate level of bitterness. Tastes pretty fresh, but nothing stands out. The type of IPA where you go "Hmm, not bad" and forget about it 5 minutes later.

daknole (9439) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 5, 2009
Can shared by JW77 at his July 4th bash! Pours a cloudy amber. Lots of good hops in the aroma...citrus, pine and some herbal/floral. Light malt notes. Flavor has quite a bit of malt and is followed by a good hop bite. Some grassy notes, citrus and resin. Pretty nice.

egajdzis (5401) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Poured a lightly hazy, amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, pine, grass, skunk, toast, and caramel. Taste of citrus fruits, toast, caramel, pine, skunk, tobacco, and a bitter hoppy finish.

gkost (1714) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2009
On tap @ 21A. Poured a nice amber. Nose is big fruity hops and a nice sweet caramel graininess. Flavor is malty sweetness followed by loads of citrus. Good body, finishes dry. I will note that I had this in a can as well and it was VERY infected. Tons of lactic sourness. Very very badly infected. However, I wonít let that color this rating. Good beer when not funky ;)
