3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 isn’t 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. There’s 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 aren’t my cup of tea, but it’s okay otherwise. Seems to be a bit more complex than many others in the style.
M: It’s 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 isn’t fantastic. I’ll have to give this a second chance fresh.

Poured from a can into a glass. Huge floral aroma. Nice darker golden body. Much bigger malt backbone than I was expecting, but it was good. Semi sweet taste with a nice touch of hoppy bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden with a medium white head that leaves fine lacing. Nose is of pine and fruits, caramel and some light soap. Taste is lightly sweet and moderately bitter, offers some tropical fruits first and then some caramel and some really light alcohol notes. Body is light-ish, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel a little watery (but also slightly oily). Overall a good american IPA, really drinkable!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can (12 oz) bought @ Winooski Beverage Warehouse.
Appearance: Clear golden/orange with a medium mostly lasting white head and some lacing.
Aroma: Tropical fruits (mangos mostly) with caramel, piney notes and toasted notes. Soapy notes too.
Taste: Mangos, caramel, pine, light sweetness, toasted malt and medium bitterness.
Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Dry finish. Lingering resinous finish.
Overall: Good IPA that doesn’t stand out on any features but that is slightly above average in almost any aspects. The "finish" is a bit too sticky and harsh for my liking, but not by much so it’s bearable. Tasty tropical IPA.

Fruity smell not piney. Amber color small head, a bit maltier than I prefer with a little bitter aftertaste but not much. Good everyday IPA.
