On tap at Rattle N Hum
Appearance: clear light amber look with creamy mid top
Nose: sweet candy sugar like, flowery aroma, citric hop touch6+.
Flavor/Palate : full bodied. Sweetness of malts covered by bitter hopping. Hops were more dominant I aroma. Slight hint of alcohol at finish that actually helped here balance. This is one ale that shall grow on you.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
20090805 12oz can from Spirits RB. Nice looking beer is lightly hazed dark gold with medium-sized, sticky, white head. Aroma is mostly citrus hops, apple, pineapple, white bread. Medium bodied with coating stickiness and persistent eff. Long lingering citrus pith bitterness is very refreshing. Flavors are sweet, citrusy, orange Tang astringency. Not a standout, especially for ten beans a six pack, but still decent and cans are cool. With big abv and refreshment combo, might be a slick camping pack in.

12 oz. can at Grey Lodge Pub. Poured light orange with white head. Citrusy flavor with low IBUs, just how I like my IPAs.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can from Oak Tree. Poured a rather thin looking orange amber with an awesome huge frothy sticky off white head, would of rated higher but the body looked just too thin and watery. Aroma was sort of all over the place that started off with lots of dusty caramel notes and old citrus fruit that gives way to a much more pleasant hop juiceness. Palate is slightly thin on the initial flavor but actually seems thicker once you swallow and finishes dry and very bitter, not bad. Flavor of crackers, oranges, slight chocolate, a touch of citrus rind and some toffee. Solid beer but either it’s overrated or I have an older can.

12 oz. can. Pours a slightly hazed dark gold with a moderate off-white head. Pleasant aroma of resinous pine and malt. The flavor is malt up front followed by strong pine with a medium resinous quality. Somewhat sweet. Strong bite at the finish. Its nice to see good beer in a can!

From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is fruity and with a promise of a solid malt base. Sweet malt flavoured, very crisp mango fruity hops flavoured. Smooth bitter and nicely malt balanced finish.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2010 Draft at brouwers 7/23/09.
Had this alongside the Union Jack brothers, and it as the most drinkable of the three though perhaps not the best (if that makes any sense). Nice citric flavors, easy to drink. When did US session beers top 7%? 7/4/7/4/14
Darn solid for an IPA-in-a-can. Big citrus and tropical fruit nose, enjoyably drinkable. 8/4/7/4/14

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a slightly cloudy straw color, with aarge white head. Aroma is grapefruit hops. Flavor is bitter, but it falls flat in the aftertaste, it goes watery. Just ok for me.
