COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A heavily-hopped, West Coast-style IPA. Bold, complex flavors with a solid malt backbone and assertive hop profile, along with cold conditioning give this beer its crisp, clean finish.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2014 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!

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.

12oz can in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops plus pale/caramel malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. Nothing really stands out with this beer.

355ml can. Nice look, hazy amber with some big off white head. Intense hop aroma, not entirely balanced. Tastes strongly of resin bitterness, some minor sweet notes. Body is a little thin but not watery. Overall, strongly hopped but not much else. Decent if you want a bitter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy brown pour, mildly hoppy aroma. VERY hoppy flavor, citrus and grass. A nice IPA!
