NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2009
Can thanks to Snojerk321. Pours a chill hazed gold with a big frothy head. Nose is slightly citric, tropical and floral hops with some caramel sweetness as well. Taste is very straightforward IPA, Nice level of bitterness with a clean malt backbone that holds the hops up. Very nice IPA, really.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - APR 19, 2009
Can. Aroma is citrus, lemon, and floral hops with a bit of malt in the background. Slightly cloudy orange with a white foamy head. Taste is a mix of sweet and bitter but has a long bitter finish. Medium bodied, actively carbonated and a crisp clean mouth feel. I’ve had this fresh at the brewery a lot and even on cask. The can is good but this beer is amazing fresh on tap.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - APR 19, 2009
Bright gold, whipped meringue head. Little cantaloupe summery aroma. Light bodied, super easy to drink, I’m not overwhelmed with the bitterness but I am definitely whelmed. Lingering dryness.

LilBeerDoctor (3414) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2009
Can thanks to riversideAK. Pours a hazy light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of luscious tropical fruits, grapefruit, and awesome citrusy hops. Flavor of nice hop oils and sweet citrusy hops. This is an awesome IPA, one of my favorites. A touch sweet, but that’s my only complaint. Delicious! 9/4/8/4/16 (4.1/5)

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2009
Can. Aroma of piney hops and lots of floral hops, quite resinous, peach notes arrive later, as well as very sweet, nearly taffy-like malt behind. Flavor very fruit-hop-forward leading to a very bitter and quite dry apricot finish, all in all quite biting. Without this awesome bitter-dry finish, probably would not have enjoyed this nearly as much, but it really makes the beer for me.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 14, 2009
Tap at the brewpub: Clear golden pour with a dense white lacing head. Candied citrus hop aroma- resiny, with apricot fruity notes. Creamy texture with a solid fruity presence in the flavor. There’s a buttery malt undertone (not diacetyl). The grains lead to a peach/citrus hop character and a smooth bitterness in the finish. Another solid IPA by 21st Amendment.

12oz can at home: Thanks to Sully himself for sending this to me! As soon as you pull the tab back, a wonderful hop aroma rockets up your nose. Pours a hazy dark gold with orange edges. Nice lightly off-white head fades but sticks to the glass. Man, thats a nice full aroma with big piney hops. Definite citrus twang also. Lightly tropical, almost going to pineapple. An undertone of sweet malt keeps this from being one sided. As it sits and the hops blow off a little, sweet pineapple juice and deep malt come to the forefront. Once tasted, the hops turn more grassy. Still pine and citrus zest notes in the hop character but a little more subdued with grass laying on top. Very nice upfront hop complexity. Malt is a little shy in the beginning but it works up the courage to step through the hop fog, Slowly rising from the back. Caramel swirls through the malt at the end. Medium body finishing with caramel and a full range of hops notes from pine to slight tin. Very nicely put together beer. Well balanced and flawlessly brewed. Tasty crack can!

Can pours golden color with thick pillow-like head. Aroma is some caramel, citrus, and pine hops. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor follow the nose and mixes sweet caramel upfront with pine and citrus. Finish has the hop flavors linger for a while. I enjoyed this can of brew.

Sparky (2133) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Can courtesy of snojerk321. Pours medium gold with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves great lacing. The nose is caramel malt and floral hops. The taste is sweet caramel upfront with some earthy hops in the middle followed by sweet citrus in the finish. Medium bodied. Decent IPA – thanks Torry.
