3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Tom and served in my GI IPA glass: Clean deep orangy golden hue with a lasting frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of piney and grapefruit hop esters, some clove and pepper vapors, biscuity malt, and some mineral esters. The taste follows suit with a nice pungent hop character supported by pale malt. Lot of citric and hop spice throughout. Nicely balanced and very drinkable. Yet again another beer in a can that is beer geek worthy. YUMMY!

On tap at the brewery and then again from a can (took home a sixer). Pours orange amber, hop dominated aroma is citrus fruity & pine. Nice malt backbone balances delicious hop profile, oily bitter and fruity. An impressive example of the style, should have bought a case.

12 ounce can sampled at a homebrew meeting. Very clear copper with a snowy white head. Very blunt citus aroma. Melon even. A bit of a grassy finish. Good bitterness.

Can courtesy of Naven. Popped the top and WOW!- this is one of the best hop aromas I have ever sniffed. Beautiful pour w/ great lacing. This beer tastes like a Dbl IPA but drinks like an IPA. Excellent, truly excellent. My new favorite IPA.

I have never had this beer that was in a can that I didnít open and then not pur intoi a glass nor my own mouth upon which time I wasnít surprised that it didnít taste so ... okay, all this negativity is even getting ME down - was good, and even if it shouldnít have been, surprisingly so. Nice and full and hoppy and making me wish like hell it was a tad cheaper and that I boughyt a case or three.

Thanks to the beerlist for this. Smells wonderful, full of floral hoppiness. Has a fairly dry hoppy bitter taste. A normal session IPA that you canít go wrong with.

12 oz. Can. Thanks to Alan (fly)for the beer. Pours slightly hazy light copper with an off white head with sticky lacing. Sweet malt with big pine/citrus notes in the nose. Sweet malt with a sharp grapefruit and pine bitterness for balance. Medium body with a great mouthfeel. Great beer.

12 oz. can. Thanks Fly & Swatter! Nice golden color, clear, medium head. Nice piney and citrus aroma. Wow, what a great beer from a can. Great balance of bitterness, hop flavor & hop aroma. Obviously the dry hopping was a key. Nice malt and hop balance as well. Best beer in a can that we know of. Good beer.
