3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a can showing translucent amber yellow with a finger of clean white foam that fades very quickly.
The nose shows quite a bit of steel & aluminium with subtle grapefruit notes.
Palate is medium bodied with high carbonation. Medium to moderately high fruit forwardedness with a lot of grapefruit pith and juicy piineapple. Sharp IPA bitterness on the finish. A slight orange peel zestiness appears on the end. Bitterness is slightly high on the mid-palate but evens it out on the end. Definitely suited for trips. Easy to drink and hardly notice the 7% alcohol. Gets even better as you get used to the bitterness.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The IPA of IPAs... Pint pour, for the millionth time but finally rated, of beautifully perfect straw gold with a white cap of cumulonimbus fluff. Nose of heaven and grapefruit peel and faint resin, dry malt character. Flavor is similar, plenty of grapefruit and centennial hops, resin notes with bitterness back it all up. Seriously, if I made an IPA, this is what my goal would be.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wispy sediment at bottom, tipped 2x slowly before opening. 12 oz. bottle (dated 2015/02/18) poured into IPA glass. Pours golden amber, clear of sediment, ~1.5-2.0 fingers of foam, carbonated w/ noticeable med.-sized bubbles. Strong floral, muted biscuit-y and resin-y pine hop[py] aroma. Taste is soft, subtly fruity-sweet. Carbonation soon transforms into the tiniest of bubbles; tipped lacing dissolves slowly. Easy, crisp and light mouth-feel for a 7% ABV (with no discernible alcohol bite). Mild hints of semi-sour tangerine, lightly roasted or charred malt, - wet and easily drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aromas of orange rind, tangerine, citrus and floral hops. Appearance is a bright gold with a very thin white foam. Taste is very smooth with creamy caramel, buttery hops, orange and citrus upfront. Nice biscuit, tangerine juice,more creamy caramel and definite hops and pines come through mid palate. Finishes very smooth with a residual hop smoothness and more big orange notes. Overall, very smooth and balanced IPA with a nice body and hop presence. A rating.

Can at Dangerous Bottle Share 6.0. Clear golden pour with a small head. Floral notes, grapefruit, grass, pineapple leading to a light bitter finish. Super refreshing but lacking that wow feeling.

Bottle thanks to Bursprak. Pours a clear amber with a small, white, long lasting head. Aroma has very tropical hops, peach, malty sweetness, pine, slight grass. Slight hop minty. Taste is very light and drinkable with both sweetness and slight bitterness. Very smooth body and medium high carbonation. Alcohol really well hidden.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can thanks to bursprak. - Not sure how old this is but I am assuming it is fairly fresh. Pours hazy orange amber with a white head. Aroma is very pine forward with some peach, orange, sweet citrus fruits and lots of floral notes as well. The taste has a nice hoppyu bitterness which almost turns a little bit "minty". Also some peach, pine, floral and citrus notes. Very nice and easy drinkable.
