3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draft at the Rivertowne Pub in North Huntingdon PA this beer poured a bright orange-amber color with a small yellow-white head that faded quickly. The aroma was sweet, tart and had a fairly strong fruity hop presence. The flavor was intensely fruity and piney with a tangy and bitter presence and undertones of floral and earthy hops. The finish was long, tangy and hoppy with a faint soapy undertone. Medium body. Nice.

Can Pours out a orange amber topped with a sand cream head. Aroma was very nice. Lots of rich sweet caramel and fresh hops. Taste was much of the same plenty of sweetness but also a nice citrus hop balance. I think this is now one of my top can beers. Very tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. can as part of a trade on that other site, my apologies. Pours a clear gold with amber tints and a freaking gigantic, rocky, off-white head that leaves some uneven, soapy lacing behind. Aroma of piney hops, citrus, pale malts, grains, and some honey. Flavor is also led by piney hops, with some resin, grapefruit, caramel malts, grains, and heavy metallic notes. I doubt that’s the can but it really has a metallic and watery quality to it. Light-bodied, with average carbonation and a quick, bitter hop finish. Decent IPA, but didn’t do a whole lot for me.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a sudsy, golden orange. Aromas of citrus, especially grapefruit. Nice white lacing on beer glass. Very chewy on initial taste and impressively balanced considering the strong hops presence. Intense tingling on tongue suggestive of great mouthful. A highly enjoyable IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Orange-amber, with a thick, frothy, soft blond colored head. Aroma is big pine, citrus oils, grapefruit juice, sweet malt, caramel, and spicy hops. Taste is juicy hops, grapefruit, chewy caramel, sweet malt, pine and citrus oils. Body is medium with a creamy, though slightly bubbly, carbonation. Finishes with more caramel, sweet malt, pine needles, grapefruit juice, and orange peel. Good stuff!

Pours a light amber with a good head. Aroma is somewhat light, but with some nice floral hops, orange and honey. Flavor is medium bodied and complex with layers of citrus, honey and fresh hops. Overall a well put together, complex IPA.
