5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is literally one of my favorite IPA’s to date...the only bad thing about is it’s availability where I live. The smell has pine and and resin herb smells with some sweet toffee malts. The taste has a very crisp and refreshing hop bite that tastes herbal as well. It has a very long bitter and dry after taste digs deep into your taste buds. I also get the sweet toffee and brown honey bread like malts that add to the richness of the hops perfectly. I really think this is a perfect example of an American IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can at Jones Bday Party in San Jose, CA. Aroma is malts, honey, caramel and toffee with some minor floral hop notes. Taste is toffee, maybe even a little butterscotch with a floral / vegetal hop note. A sweet and malty take on the style (unlike an English IPA). Unique.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Darker amber pour with white head. Piney/citrus rush of aromas (be quick, it fades fast) with sweet malt in the background. Taste is fairly bitter, with just a hint of citrus from the hops. Carbonation is above average, maintaining half finger of foam. Mouthfeel is a bit slick, and finishes the same with a slightly astringent bitter bite.

For an IPA, I found it overall to be very malty, nicely balanced with hops. But doesn’t match the description, didn’t notice any hoppy bite. After saying all of that, it is a great malty-style IPA, not much in the way of aroma or hoppy finish. Maybe the cans I bought were older, so the hops had faded over time.
