12 oz can poured into a pint glass. A: Pours an amber color with tiny specks of yeast floating around. The head is a creamy two finger offwhite shade. While retention isnít the greatest, I love the texture and the lacing it leaves behind. S: The hops have faded a bit on this one, but it still provides hints of pine and grapefruit. Thereís a lot of caramel and toffee malt featured here, as well. Decent aroma here. T: I first notice some minor piny hop flavors to start, before it washes away with a lot toffee-esque malt. The finish is earthy with touches of fruity esters (unheard of in an American IPA, it seems); to the point where one could mistake the back end for excess booziness. The earthy nature of the malts arenít my cup of tea, but itís okay otherwise. Seems to be a bit more complex than many others in the style. M: Itís well attenuated for all of its maltiness, creating a fairly dry brew in spite of the faded hops and creamy feel. There is a bit of lingering sweetness on the front of the palate, which is expected. O: Gotta love a canned IPA, even if this one isnít fantastic. Iíll have to give this a second chance fresh.

Out of the can. Tastes great. Smell is very good and can design is very nice. Will definitely get again for sure.

From the can marked Enjoy by 09/09/15. It pours orange-amber with a full head.. Plenty of floral and some fruit or citrus notes in the aroma. The body is medium. Roasted malt notes at first the taste but the hop bitterness takes over in sort order and brings this to a bitter finish.

zach8270 (3834) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUL 3, 2015
(can - 12 oz) Hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Bitter and piney hop aroma with some light citrus at the end. Big bitter hop bite at the start with a floral and pine combo in the middle and a lingering bitter finish.

Can. Orangey-gold pour, smallish white head. Oranges, malt, black pepper nose. Mouth is basically the same with some soap. Average.

tekstr1der (131) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Golden pour with lingering, clingy bright white top. Looks great. Aroma of pine with some citrus. Mid-sip blast of pleasant hop bitter, fading off quickly with some malt balance and finishing... almost clean. Just a slight ding for some a little lasting back-of-the-throat roughness in the aftertaste.

Garrold (2504) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2015
Can. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Clear, orange gold. Film, and thick halo of white. White grape, and pineapple, first off. Very ripe orange. Jusoda. Chewy toffee, sticky malts. Taste is toffee sweet. Rising bitter. Plenty of body. A bit oily. Finishes lengthy, moderate bitter. Decent, albeit a bit sweet for me.

Solid IPA. Orange-gold color. More floral with some citrus properties. Decently malty caramel. Earthy and sweet overall. Still nice beer.

Desverger (3641) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2015
Can from the BottleShop, London - burnished amber coloured pour with white head. Aroma and taste is a mix of tropical and citrus fruits, hoppy and malty, some caramel, toffee, orange, grapefruit and peach, pine needles, hoppy bitter finish. Nice.

12 oz can pours clear gold with a large white head that dies quickly. Faint aroma of citrus and bread like malts. Tastes is pine and grapefruit. Also grassy and a little doughy. Bitterness is there but there is something unbalanced about this IPA. Just OK.
