2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Dark golden body with small white head that doesn’t stick around but leaves some lacing. Aroma is fruity, with orange and apricot. Flavor is nondescript bitterness, a little sweet. Some paper notes as well. Last not-fresh-at-all can of a six pack but I didn’t really care for it after the first can.

Draft, pours a nice golden color with a nice creamy head. Scent is very sweet in hops. Tastes very good and a nice sweet bitter aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, light gold color. Frothy white head that leaves some spotty lace.
Pleasant raw, high-alpha hop aroma--like sniffy hop pellets.
Strong hop flavor that starts and ends--bitterness throughout the taste and aftertaste. In short, a little one-dimensional but a true IPA. Grapefruit is the descriptor I’d use for the hop bite. Typical body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can. Nice fruity, floral hops. Very fruity flavor, not all that bitter. Reminds me of an apricot danish. Pretty nicely balanced.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. Can. Pours a medium straw color with a thin white head. Citrus hops in the nose with a little lemon zest and a bit of soap. Taste is primarily bitter hoppiness with just enough malt floating in the background to support it. Almost has a bit of an earthy character of cut grass and day old bread. Mouthfeel is thin and somewhat oily. Finishes dry and slightly astringent. Not my favorite, but a decent canned beer to take out to concerts in the summertime.
