Golden color with a small head. Malt bread like aroma masks the hop hit to come. Flavor is malty sweet upfront followed by a big hop kick that lasts a long time. Very good. Who says beer has to be in a keg or bottle.

12 oz can. crystal clear coppery medium amber. thick sudsy platinum head that really sticks around and leaves wooly sheets of lace. gorgeous. delectably floral nose of sweet pine. creamy medium body with well placed carb. toasty malts, piney sweetness on the mid palate. not a ground breaking ipa, especially given the time zone its from, but delicious, sessionable, and without troubling flaws. well done.

Pours a clear deep straw color with white head (from the can). Nice aroma of banana and pineapple. Flavor is slightly grassy hoppiness and a bit of the grapefruit as well. Lightly malt, enough to highlight the hops but not that much there. really nice body but a bit of astringency on the finish. Decent beer.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Can - Hazy gold, creamy white head. Sour pineapple and orange juice aromas ride a touch of yeast. Guava-pineapple hop flavors warm to notes of citrus and florals throughout. Where art thou malt? Medium bodied, soft carbonation, light bittersweet finish. Not sure what I got here, but it does seem like a bad can. Re-rate another day I suppose...

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Nice floral/citric hop aroma. Moderate hop blast in the flavor, floral and citric notes. Light sweet malt presence. Solid.

jake65 (2848) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 21, 2009
Can: Pours golden with a large, frothy sand colored head. Aroma is rich and sweet with citrus hops, caramel, and light florals. Flavor is a rich, hoppy blend of citrus and florals. The citrusy sweet eventually takes over with the caramel before finishing into a lingering sweet bitter blend. Nice.

tgncc (2994) - Bellmore, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Nice golden/amber color, white head. the aroma is citrus hops, resiny hops, caramel sweetness, nice balance. The flavor follows, no surprises. The flavor walks a nice line between the citrusy hops, grapefruit bitterness and the caramel sweetness. The finish is strictly grapefruit bitter. The mouthfeel is medium, slightly on the thick side. not outstanding but very nicely done.

abcfan (802) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Very nice brew. Pours hazy orange with fluffy white head. Citrus/pine aroma prevalent. Very good taste..oranges, creamy caramel malt, and tangerines. Sweet, sticky taste fades to bitter finish. Would drink again.

Arayaga2 (1866) - portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Hazy orange with an inch of white head. Orange and resin in the aroma with tangerine carrying into the taste. Initial perception of sweetness fades dry into the finish. $3.5/12oz

Got this off the Growler Bar at Stony Brook Beverage! Like the name, but Love the beer! The aroma is big bold hops of pine and grapefruit juice, sweet tangelo backed up by a malty sweetness. The taste is semi sweet tangelo, orange peel and malt sweetness. Near midway the sweet malts elbow into the flavor but eventually succumb to increasing pine and grapefruit hop bitterness.Very tasty brew.
