3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

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 ;)
