Can thanks to Funkybrester.Pours a hazy golden with a super frothy white head. A strong sweet fruitiness to the nose, a pineapple aroma. A bit of caramelly malt into a juicy fruitiness that ends in a decent hop kick. Sweet ipa, nice but sweet.

I don’t know...admittingly, I am not much of an IPA person myself, but I just wasn’t a huge fan of the beer. It had all the markings of a good IPA, but I just couldn’t bring myself to like it. Maybe I’ll try the beer again down the road.

Can. Can pours hazy yellow with large off-white head with good lace. Aroma of pine and citrus. Flavors of yellow grapefruit, orange juice, and pine with a nice bitter hop finish that is balanced nicely with a hint of sweet navel oranges. Very drinkable, Had at Patty’s family gathering at Hamlin Beach.

AirForceHops (3203) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 18, 2014
4 oz. sample at 21A. Hazy straw color with light foamy head. The aroma is citrus pith and pale grain mixed with light pine. The flavor has some caramel, sugar sweetness giving an almost candied grapefruit and orange flavor. The bitterness shows itself in the form of pine resin and is balance a tad with the sugary sweet malt. Carbonations gives a creamy feel while leading to a semi dry texture.

I guess about 3 or 4 years ago this would have been impressive for me. But with so many IPAs available in the craft beer market I just cant find anything that makes this standout. Nothing wrong with it but I would have no need to seek this out in a can on the East Coast.

Salmoniform (657) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Poured from can to glass. Honey hue with creamy white head that lingered. Aroma is malt, melon, honey, nectarine, papaya, sugar. Mouthfeel is nice with a full body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a really nice bitterness in the following that extends through the finish. Overall this is a really nice I2PA.
