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 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.

Iíve had this many times but never rated. Can pour avg gold with moderate white head. Nose a strong dank hop, a some green apple, mild tropical fruit. Taste moderate bitter up front then lightly spicy and fruit hop. Mid palate bitterness lasts through the finish. Reasonable sweet malt. When first available this was one of the best ipa available in a can. Now there are several better options.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy honey gold with big fluffy head. Aroma of spicy dank grassy hops. Taste- crackery dry malt with a spicy green grassy hop balance. Maybe a touch of pine. Thicker malty mouthfeel but well balanced. Nice IPA.

Can. Clear golden colour. Aroma crystal, typical American malty. Tastes brutal. Hop kick in your head, high bitterness, lots of grapefruity zesty citrusy flavour. Very good. Light alcohol burn.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
appearance: clear golden orange with two fingers of creamy juuuust-off-white head that slowly shrinks to a thick cap and leaves generous lacing. aroma: peach, mango, pineapple, apricot, with a popcorn-to-graham cracker malt note. taste: tropical fruit hoppy notes dominate up front, with pineapple, mango, maybe some guava; thereís a bit of cereal malt, but not as much as seemingly advertised. finish: lingering dry bitterness, with just a hint of toast underneath. notes: Seemed like a pretty typical IPA, albeit one thatís on the better end of the spectrum. Good palate. Would drink again, but in this IPA jungle it doesnít do much to stand out. Not that it needs to, itís a solid beer, but for me itís not in that top echelon. Gift sixpack from Tim for my birthday.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden with a light haze, stippled film and soft lacing ringed head. Nose is peachy citrus. Initial taste is soft playful pineapple, slightly cheesy. Carbonation is solid, mouthfeel swift and lean. Clears up on the finish but is solidly resinous bitter, light dankly limey linger.

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.
