12 oz can received in a trade a while back, poured into a tulip. A bit old, so lack of freshness may affect scores, but we’ll see. Pours clear amber with creamy, frothy off-white head. Aroma of very sweet caramel malt and floral/citrus hops. Taste is very sweet and caramel-ish, with some sweet fruit and pine. Crisp medium mouthfeel. Very good, I’d like to taste it fresh!

12oz can. I have had this numerous times since it showed up in the WA market a few months ago, but figured it is time to rate it. Nose is biscuity pineapple and malty peach. Tastes like a cracker up front. Moves into some citrus and tropical fruit and then malt and piney bitterness.

GABF 2009, day 1: Fluffy carbonation along with a smooth texture. Rich malts but not overly malty. Moderate bitterness. Zingy hop finish. Not overly exciting but it’s a solid beer.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2010 Cloudy pineapple juice color. Big foamy head. Great head retention. Specky lace. Citrus aroma; orange/grapefruit. Puckery pale malt. Touch of sawdust. Pungent woody hoppy flavor at first. Fruity with a bitter citrus bite. Some bready, roasted caramel malts as it warms up. Oaky finish bookends it. A little bite on the swallow; thick like an Imperial IPA. Beautiful and citrusy. Sweet, hop-heavy and nice. Balanced, not too bitter. Sweet and spicy.

Really light color for an IPA, being golden and all that. White head. Piny hops in the aroma. Taste is pretty hoppy and leaves an aftertaste. Malt backbone along with a pretty generic citrus taste. This is a legit good IPA and has a high alcohol content for additional points when in comes to value.

Golden pour with a fluffy white head. Nice lacing as I drink it down. Great grassy, pine and grapefruit hops aroma. Nice bitterness but not overkill. Bitterness matches the aroma. Slight bready and meal backbone to match the bitterness. Nice IPA. Easy drinking for 7%.

12 oz. can. No freshness date seen. Poured out a typical IPA color, with a minimal tan colored head. It left a decent lacing down the sides of the glass. Aromas are typical west coast hops, slight biscuit or bread note. Flavors are typical west coast ipa, hops, hops, and more hops. Medium mouthfeel, ok body. Has a strange aftertaste, like it got hot or something.

Can thanks to RiversideAK. Cool can...beer,not so good. Taste is a little bit soapy, a little peppery, and a hint of citrus. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side and not even a little bit balanced. Not the worst beer ive ever had, but its not great.

Brewed in the USA...Courtesy of AFI96, thanks Waylo !!! Pours copper in color with a medium white head. Aroma of citrus, pineapple, malts and mild hops. Taste is of caramel, toast, mild hops and mandarin oranges. Mouthfeel is thin in body with a small amount of lingering bitterness at the finish. Pretty good stuff in a can !!!
