dark gold pour with a thick pillowy white head. aroma is pine and orange citrus hop over a subtle caramel maltiness. Flavour was citrus hop, with some candied orange and caramel sweetness in the background...though not as deep in flavour as expected/hoped for. Alc is very well blended and it finishes very clean.

Can courtesy of Gator from TBS. Thanks! Pretty standard hazy yellow pour with a white head. I thought it had a very fruity taste, moreso than usual with the citrus. Wasn’t quite as hoppy bitter as I had hoped. All in all a pretty standard IPA.

Bockyhorsey (2626) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Can courtesy of ericandersnavy. Good citrus aroma on the nose. Copper body with off white head. Decent cirtus flavor but the malt backbone holds that cool and crispness back from the palate. Sweet juicy chewy citrus left on plate. Good Brew thanks eric.

HonkeyBra (3896) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Can? fuckin’ aye. Clear amber pour with sticky white head. Aroma of lemongrass, citrus, some sweet malt, maybe a bit of sourdough. Flavor is somewhat bitter, lightly sweet, well balanced, nice. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Finishes a little weird, but pretty good nonetheless.

Skyview (5411) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Picked up a single 12-oz can from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with a decent off-white head that slowly dissipates and leave behind some nice lacing. Aroma of cascade hops, golden grain malt, and a touch of vegetables. Taste is medium bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, some grapefruit and lemon zest, a touch of orange juice and floral hops. Finish is very mild bitter that quickly disappears. This is closer to an American Pale Ale than an IPA.

12oz. can: This one pours a slightly hazy orangish-amber color. There is a very small off-white head on it, but it leaves some lacing. The aroma is pretty typical of a good IPA: I get an evenly balanced shot of grapefruit and pine hops. Pretty much all hops to the taste. Pine and citrus. Fairly bitter. It is good, but could be a bit better balanced with the malts. Still, a great beer in a can!

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Can:   Deep amber, at least fairly dark, strong carbonation, large finely bubbled head with nice retention and lacing.   Sweet hoppy nose, a little dank.   Some powdered sugar aspects.   Flowery, hoppy, but not really that bitter.   Decent sweet malt base. Almost seems more like a bigger American Pale Ale.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Clean finish, sweet citrusy hops.   Probably one of the sweeter hopped up beers I have ever had.   A little mealy as it warms, but its minor.   Good stuff, sweeter and less hoppy than most.

Super hoppy flavor. First time I had it out of a can I was shocked by the bold flavor. It is a really nice balanced IPA with some nice citrusy flavors that come out here and there. A great IPA.

12 oz can from Princeton’s. Orangish colored pour with a foamy head with excellent lacing. Orange/citrus hoppy aroma. Flavor is more of the same. Nice and hoppy without being too bitter. Smooth finish. Excellent beer.

Almost clear amber with a big head that fades rather quickly... big hoppy aroma that has a metallic paint like odor, but i was at a bar and the beer was in one of those coors light glasses where the mountains turn blue... watery body, metallic, lively, grassy finish, average in most ways...
