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.

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.

12oz can. Nice fruity, floral hops. Very fruity flavor, not all that bitter. Reminds me of an apricot danish. Pretty nicely balanced.

Hoptagon (239) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2009
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.

BroSpud (1742) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAY 21, 2009
12oz can.Good IPA and from a can. Not quite in the league of a Racer 5 but still better than average. Will probably be my beer of choice when we go to the festivals this summer where no bottles are allowed.

It pours a cloudy orange amber color with a thin white head to it and some spots along the side walls of the glass. The nose is full of fresh hops and lemon grass, and there is a bit of yeast funk that you can pick up as well. the flavor is nice and crisp and fresh with lemon and fresh hops mixed with an earthy background and carmel malt that sticks to the sides of your mouth nicely. Overall it is a great IPa with nice carbonation and excelent hop flavor.

Pours clear dark gold with a white head. Light body. Citrus, pine and toast in the aroma and taste.
