1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
The best part of this beer is the aroma. When you open the can and take a whiff, it promises something great. Then you drink it and it sucks. In an over-saturated genre of beer, this is one of the offenders. I am confident that the ’aging’ of this beer ruins a lot of what makes hoppy beers good. Do you like beers like Hopslam or Green Flash West Coast IPA? Beers that have BRIGHT hop flavors? If so you will most likely think this is total ass.
I WANTED to like the packaging. I’m into this whole ’fancy beer in cans’ thing. But then I started reading the little words printed all over the can. They are stupid. A total waste of time. Don’t even bother. It’s NOT funny, or cute, or anything other than asinine. Also, I resent the caricatured faces drawn on the can. Are those the guys who make the beer or something? Why is it important to them that their faces are on the beer? Fucking egoists.
I want my money back. Bummertown.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Parker Pie, 9.7%, served in an IPA glass it gives off an intensely jammy waft of stone fruits. Getting in for a closer whiff I get some boozy sharp heat, lots of malt caramel sweetness and hints of pine.
Full bodied and quite a lusciously smooth mouthfeel. The taste is sharp peppery pine, jammy sweet stone fruit and a semi-dry herbal finish with some warmth radiating outwards from your stomach. Quite a good double IPA though I didn’t get anything from the oak spirals.

Aromas are very subtle but considering little amount of hops is used wasn’t too bad. Cloudy copper with white head. Amazing taste. Cotton candy, orange, bitter peel. Finished with a good alcohol bite. Fine example of what you can do with limited resources. Very well balanced and crafted.

Can. Golden pour. Aroma has lots of hops, caramel, citrus, pineapple and peach. Bitter taste of citrus hops, pineapple, peach, mild caramel and a really bitter finish. Great hop bomb.

On tap at Gnarly Barley. Sweet pineapple and strawberry and overripe orange aroma with apricot notes. Slightly hazy copper under a lacy white, thin sheet. Flavour is salty with hops that are a blend of old and new world; apricot, pineapple, pine, strawberry, grapefruit. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth and a little warming.

A nice solid IPA. The flavor is hoppy with a quite bitter finish. A little too astringent for my wife, but I found it enjoyable.

can @ House of 1000 Beers / New Kensington PA --- $5.25 for this can - I expect Nirvana. Aroma of herbal and citruas hops + light malt. Clear medium / light amber color, frothy white head that stays at three-fingers, globs and bands of lace. Taste is a perfect half and half between caramel malt and an assortment of hops, primarily citrus. Medium carbonation completes the deal. It seems like a strong malty brew, but then it switches to a hoppy brew - each swallow seems to contradict the other,...and yes,... the alcohol is mysteriously hidden, so care must be given. Complex, balanced, not heavy at all, a superb brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Impressive brew. No distinctive aroma that i could catch. Deep amber orange...almost what I would call a pumpkin color. Tall white head laces nicely. Smooth flavor with enough sweetness to conceal any bitter with just a hint of dryness at the end.
