bottled, medium golden with thick white head, huge grassy/citrus hop aroma with no malt/bread notes, big hop flavors from up front carrying all the way to the end with nice light body, fairly clean/crisp finish with no hop bitters on palate, true hop bomb!

Orange in color with a light copper head, with a nice lace left on the glass. It has a nice floral aroma that Is backed up with that first sip. This is well balanced with a heavy malt bill to back up the amount of hops.

This IPA had a very nice hop aroma, but was a little overboard on the bitterness which takes away from the flavor and palate of the beer. There is not a good balance between hops an malt. The beer was super fresh coming from a can though. An OK IPA for me.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to riversideAK. Big coniferous hops aroma, a bit of a floral element, too. Pours a light, hazy gold with a thick off-white head and glass-coating lace. Flavor has a floral front against a husky malt backbone, soapy hops bitterness that overpowers the aroma hops a bit. Medium body, smooth and soft on the palate.

Best beer I’ve ever had in a can, directly out of the can, unfortunately. Surprising hop aroma and taste, not too bitter. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a transparent dark golden bronze with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet caramely malts with a mild grassy and grapefruity hop character. Starts with pretty good fullness and malty sweetness with a pleasant citrusy hop balance before a crisp, bittersweet finish. Could use a little more hoppy assertiveness, but is still quite drinkable.
