3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2011 Can thanks to weeheavysd...Pours with a large, creamy, off-white head, good lace. Clear sunset colored golden body. Aroma of fine sticky toffee, pine hops and butterscotch. Taste is smooth with caramel and sweetness, light hops and a slight roasted finish. Very easy to drink. Light bubbles and a water like mouthfeel.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Compliments of doboy, poured from 12 oz can clear copper with a white head. Aroma of citrus, pine and tropical fruitiness in the nose -very fresh. Flavour was full bodied, pine, grapefruit, mango and papaya. Pleasant malt sweetness level with a smooth yet quite ample bitterness. Tremendous beer, wish I had some more, thanks Ed for sharing!

First really good canned beer I have tried. Refreshing and nice, no hint of the abv. Canít believe I poured this out of a can. This is truly progress.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Canned). Large bubbly head which looks like soap bubbles. Golden color body. Not much aroma considering they say itís dry hopped. Malt flavor comes through and keeps up with hops, especially considering itís an IPA. Hops linger on the palate a lot longer than does the malt. Itís a nice beer, but not necessarily something Iím going to add to my regular stable of beers around the house.

12oz can courtesy of brewerb, thanks a bunch man. Super clear, light orange with a decent head. It smells fruity like mangoes or something. The flavor is very nicely balanced between the malts and hops which really makes this easy to drink. No hint of the 7% alcohol. Another winner in a can!

Thanks to snojerk321 for the can!
Pours pretty transparent amber-gold, large, bubbly white head. Nose has caramel, peach, lemon, toast, and fresh hop. Flavor is a little weaker, caramel, hop bitterness, sweet fruit and citrus. Palate is thin, but that helps the refreshing quality of the beer. Iíd drink another.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12oz can provided by snojerk321 and served in a shaker. This IPA poured a lightly hazed golden amber with a thin, bubbly head of off-white foam. The aroma consisted of strong orange, grapefruit rind, and some chewy caramel. The flavor was heavy on the grapefruit and orange, and there was also a very sturdy caramel element. Also a bit of iced tea flavor at the finish. The mouthfeel was medium to full-bodied and had light carbonation. A decent IPA, but I think I liked the can better than the beer inside of it.

12 ounce can courtesy of cdumler. Thanks! Pours a golden orange color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet malts, citrus hops, caramel and grain. Taste is leafy, vegetal hops, nutty toasted malts. Medium bodied.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another in the massive box that came in from Snojerk. Pours a clearer and thinner than normal looking orange/yellow. Flavor is mostly grassy with a tinge of grapefruit. Hop flavor is there and decent but not overly huge and aggressive. Itís just right I think for a fine sunny day in April or May. Aroma is a little light but the flavor more than makes up for that. Now Iím getting a little green apple flavor and the finish is metallic hops. Pretty impressed with the diverse flavor profile.

12 oz. can: Nice grassy hop but really really pale for an IPA. Was expecting more hop flavor based on the aggressive aroma but was let down. Maybe we got an old can. Would love to re-rate.
