3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fresh 16oz can. Pours a darker copper gold with faint haze. Very balanced nose, piney slightly fruity and catty hops, present but not cloying malt sweetness. Light mouthfeel, given the appearance. The hop taste is a touch soapy that wasn’t really detectable on the nose, they aren’t also overly bitter. Just really balanced and getting close to sessionable. Love that they are canning this, but $12 4 packs seem a bit steep. Good for them if they are getting that, but I will stick with Fremont IPA as my go to for under $10 for a six pack.

Amber color, clean. Resiny hops aroma, some caramel flavor, lean mouthfeel, strong ending bitterness, with light hop resins and light fruitiness. Pleasant.

It has a mild bitterness in the finish. Even milder on the front. Not malty. I look for a citrus or floral hop flavor. It's bot here.

Draft at Chuck’s - from notes. Aroma: Bread, pine, and toast. Taste: Lightly sweet, dry, moderate-to-big bitterness in the finish. Loads of pine. Whereas the aroma made me wonder if this was really an IPA (maybe an English IPA), the taste is where it really asserts itself. Medium body, a shade thin with oily texture. Overall: this was my wife’s favorite of the 4 IPAs. Middle of the pack for me, but certainly nice enough.

Pour is a hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is an ok hop followed by some sweet malt. Flavor is a light dank hop with some of the sweet sticky malt making an appearance. Finish is again a light bitterness with some malt presence. It’s ok, a bit heavy in the malt dept. but hops are here just not aggressively so.
