Nice, well moderated grapefruit and caramel aroma. Dirty orange color. Fairly straightforward bitter, not as balanced as it smells. Plush body that is easy drinking except for some dryness at finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can gift from Dr Silverworm. Poured a hazy copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate west coast earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium earthy bitter flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Draft. Pours caramel in color with off white head that lingers. Hop aroma up front. Nice hop flavor that isn't overwhelming but not complex or boozy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz can, thanks to David (guy in BMW). Canned 4/25/13. Totally hazy bright orange color. Good thin off-white head. Nice lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lightly soft, light to moderate carbonation, lightly dry in the finish. Nice moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Pretty hoppy, but it definitely tastes like old hops... Soapy, lightly spicy, kind of caramel malty. Some pine still evident. Would like to have tried this fresh, but not bad as it is.

From a can, poured in glass. Pours a hazy copper color with a frothy head. Head doesn’t last too long, light lacing. Nice hoppy aroma, initial bitterness followed by a bit of malt sweetness. Quite drinkable.

My latest go to IPA! While definitely NOT a session beer, well worth adding a bit of bite to top off your day! On tap slightly smoother than can but both an intense time!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a clear copper body with a great frothy off-white head that left lots of sticky lacing. The nose is so bursting with hops that I can smell it on the table two feet away from me. Nice bright citrusy hops with a moderate caramel malt base. The flavor is rather heavy on the bitterness with sticky resiny hops and a slightly sweet caramel malt base. The malt is pretty prominent, but yet it doesn’t overpower or obscure the fresh complex hop notes. Medium bodied, just bordering on chewy without being sticky or cloying, nice soft carbonation. This is a pretty nice IPA, I could have a few of these.
