3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Can at Ri Ra, Charlotte, 12/2/14
Aroma: It has a pretty great aroma, it is clean and citrusy, with fresh hops, and grassy notes
Appearance: Slightly hazy orange color with a small white head and medium lace
Flavor: The flavor isnít quite as good, slightly off, bitter, but not hoppy and clean like the nose
Palate: The body is medium, with a decent mouthful and a somewhat dry finish
This beerís flavor doesnít live up to the excellent aroma or pour. It certainly makes a good first impression.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice piney aroma, not getting much else. Kind of a generic IPA in my opinion. Pretty dry finish though. Like a lot dryer than I expected. Lingering bitterness. Overall not terrible not the best just kind of falls in the middle. Iím a hug fan of IPA in a can and honestly that didnít even save it being being super average.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp, very lightly hazy golden and light copper coloured body with a very thin, single centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of fresh hops, resin, grapefruit, passionfruit, tropical fruits and a nice malt backbone - very nice smelling. Medium-bodied; Biting hop flavour of grass, flowers and tropical fruits with not much malt and not much else - fairly one dimensional and just hoppy. Aftertaste shows more grassy and herbal hop notes, but again, not much malt depth nor alcohol flavours. This is fairly light and seems high at 6,7% abv with more of a light IPA flavour and style that is evident. Overall, if you like session-based IPAs but want a touch more alcohol, this one is good for you. I actually like this style of IPAs with a less-strong malt note and a good dose of hops in the mix - this one fits the billing. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Cary, North Carolina on 02-August-2014 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 18-September-2014.

Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: Total Wine & More in Ballantyne (Charlotte), N.C.
Purchased: Sept. 9, 2014
Consumed: Sept. 15, 2014
Poured a caramel, orange , hazy color with 5-to-6 fingers of rocky, off-white head. Tons of streams of bubbles coming up around the glass. Very good foamy lacing along the sides of the glass all the way down. Great retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 4.19)
Smelled wet Cascade hops, Columbus hops, caramel, soapy pine, light crayon, faint mango, orange zest, floral hops and slight grapefruit juice. (Smell - 3.81)
Tasted much different than the nose and the much different wasnít better. Got vegetable hops, buttery earthy notes, onions, wet Cascade hops, caramel, honey, bitter mango rind, Citra hops, light floral hops and Columbus hops. Buckling bitter finish on the tongue. (Taste - 3.49)
Light-to-medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, astringent, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.33)
Not a big fan of this beer. Too earthy and too much butter veggies. (Overall - 3.52)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. can from Lighthouse. It pours a rich gold color with an off white head. The aroma has strong pine, florals and grapefruit with a fair amount of caramel malt. The flavor has more strong pine, grapefruit and sweet caramel/toffee. Full bodied and a little too sweet for me, but the hop character was strong and satisfying. Good bitter finish. Decent stuff.
