3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can from grape & gourmet. pours a clear gold with a thick, creamy white head and sticky lacing. aroma is damn nice with big, hoppy, citrus notes of grapefruit and orange, very subtle tropical and berry notes, light grass, and a healthy dose of toasted, nutty malts. flavor is tasty as well but not quite as hoppy as the aroma with more earthy, herbal hops taking a front seat to the orange citrus notes and backed by mildly sweet, bready malts with a hint of honey. palate is medium bodied with thin carbonation and a slight metallic twang. overall, a solid IPA.

Can thanks to some random chaps that came into the rake one night and cracked them open. Alround rating: Caramel caramalt, citrusy, lychee, grapefruit, honey sweet pale malt, peppery alcohol in the finish. Easy drinkin enough, but im getting bored of this.

This poured a clear golden color with a white head. Aroma was clean crisp but not over powering citrusy hops. Flavor was nice clean hops, very refreshing, not overly bitter by any means but still comes out because the malt content isnt overly sweet. Nothing special but a refreshing IPA.

Can. Pours a pale golden amber with a white head that laces nicely. Aroma is full of pine hops, but is quite one note. Flavor is a bit more complex with a balance of sweet grains and pine hops throughout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2010 A very decent brew. Poured from a 12 oz can (!). Color is light orange, with some very large carbonation bubbles showing. Carbonation is about on finger but it quicly dissipates. Aroma is certainly piney, but not overly strong. On first impression, this beer comes off as hoppy mostly in an aromatic way with not as much bitterness. There is a very strong malty backbone, reminiscent of sweet bread dough. A very decent beer, just don’t drink it expecting it to bust your hop palate.
