Had to pour this one out. Had a skunkiness to it that that rare IPA has that for some reason just tastes offensive a bit. I liked this beer in some places but the hops for me were off, they tasted too planty, like drinking cactus juice or juices squeezed from a mesh bag of fresh cut grass. I just couldnít take them. For me this was a similar experience to Andersen Valleyís Hop Ottin IPA which I could not drink. Just too much dryness astringent plant material to it. Not my fave.

can poured into a goblet. pours dark amber with large frothy head. Arouma of hay, grasss clippings and grains, some grape fruit notes too. Nice light caramel base thatís almost (but not quite) overwhelmed by the huge hops presence. Finishes bitter but not lingering so Iím pretty impressed came out of a can.

11th October 2008. GABF. Clear gold beer. Deliciously hoppy. Crisp and dry palate. Good even though it was served a little too warm. Must try again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A golden amber color, not much foam, straight from the keg at 21st Amendment. A nice, fresh taste, somewhat less fruity than the notes I picked up on the nose. I like it, and I must remember it for next time I fly Virgin America.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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. Wasnít quite as hoppy bitter as I had hoped. All in all a pretty standard IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can? fuckiní 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.
