Pailhead (5445) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Can: The aroma consists of moderate citrus, lighter tropical fruits, a touch of dank hops, and caramel. It pours a transparent amber with a two finger white head that leaves behind a lot of soapy webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus up front with light tropical fruit. There is just a hint of caramel in the middle. The finish has moderate grapefruit, hints of pineapple, and barely a touch of dankness. Itís medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Tmoney99 (11698) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Can. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture with soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium duration. Very good brew.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2015 Can, thanks to Jason. A few months old now. Amber pour with a small head. Aromas are grapefruit and tropical fruit. Taste has a moderate bitterness. Hops have probably faded a bit but thereís still a nice citrus and pineapple taste. Some wet grass too. Good IPA. I hope to revisit with a fresh one some time. Re-rate with a fresh can. Love the aroma of big floral hops with tropical fruit and grapefruit. Tastes the same with a strong malt backbone. Reminds me of a more intense Two Hearted. Great.

Can as an extra from trade. The aka! Pours hazy goldeneye orb a massive fluffy white head. Very floral aromatics off the top with some interesting fruity citrus and perfume notes going on. Flavor is a bit on the maltier side and some stale floral hops. No date on the can so tough to tell if itís old or just supposed to be that way. Decent buttering coming through, so I suspect itís not just an old brew. Medium slick body, dry finish, with medium plus carbonation. Drinkable and fine but not something to seek out. Glad to have tried it.

Pour on tap at Hopcat, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, mango, some pineapple, hints of caramel, toffee into a bit of spice, some slight piney notes as well. Taste is fruit forward up front with mango, pineapple, orange, and grapefruit, some grass and piney notes into a bit of caramel, toffee, finishing spicy, bitter. Nice brew.

Cloudy golden hue with a frothy white head. Easy on the palate. Enjoyable flavor. Will have again if I can find it again.

Bulk_Carrier (2581) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Reviewed from notes. From the can into a pint glass, the appearance was a slightly cloudy, golden-amber color with a one and a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within about forty five seconds. A decent amount of stringy lacing stuck and then slid into the body. The smell had a sweet grapefruit, strong piney hops, becomes slightly tropical and then lets in an ample amount of caramel-esque to slight biscuit malts. The taste took the previously mentioned flavors and added a light zesty grapefruit peel. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable quality about it. Its got a slight crisp yet dry finish. Overall, Iíd say this was a pretty good IPA Iíd take to the dome again.
