Crown cap 22oz bottle stamped "enjoy by Sep 28 2011". Slightly past date, almost certainly a good thing for me. The brightness of IPAs built this way is usually too much for me, a little "mutation" is a good thing in my opinion. Pours pale reddish gold with a quarter inch head quickly fading to minimal lacing. Dusty floral nose, not too soapy, some orange peel and brine. Thinner texture fits beer’s overall lightness, nice bitterness not overwhelming. Muted tones of dried herbs and flowers. Bright, but not in your face. Its slight over-age has worked in its favor. Any fresher and I’d need a hot summer day to go along with it.

Pours a pretty golden Amber with a thin eggshell head. Malty aroma has subtle fruit and hoppy hints. Flavor has a strong woody hop overtone, which the malty core supports quite well; a whisper of fruit sneaks through. Texture is fairly firm and fizzy, leaving a hoppy finish. Heed the hoopla and grab a crater!

Transfer from BA review on 4-9-14-
Poured from can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a nice golden amber color with a big foamy head of a white color. The head has a great level of retention, very slowly fading to leave a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a bready and grainy smell mixed with some nice aromas of a more fruity nature. The fruit is a nice mix of citrus and tropical fruit smell with an orange mingling with some mango and papaya. Along with these aromas are some smells of a grassy and grapefruit hop as well as a bit of an earthy and hay-like aroma overall producing a rather inviting aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and slightly grassy flavor mixed with some lighter sweetness of a light fruit nature. The light fruit, which consists of an orange, apple and pear flavor, is very mild, with it growing even more so as the flavor advances to the end of the taste. While the sweeter flavors dwindle, so too does the bready flavors, with them being replaced by a more cracker like taste. Toward the end of the flavor profile, the grassy flavor gets slightly stronger in nature with it being joined by a light hay-like and earthy hop flavor, which in the end, leave a rather crisp and clean taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. The blend of body and carbonation are fantastic for the malty and moderately hoped flavors of the brew all while still maintaining an easy drinking and crisp feel for the brew. Great for the style.
Overall – This was a very easy drinking and rather tasty APA. I rather enjoyed this one and will certainly go back to it.

"Undated can, new to Reno 3 weeks ago. Tasted and smelled medium fresh. Liked the fruity tropical aroma ad flavor going on, haylike backbone, light biscuit and caramel malt. Simple, tasty. Lower scores around the 50th percentile on rb...I thought it slightly above average and sessionable. "

Festive can. Aroma is very hoppy be at first. Lots of pine. Then it mellows out into a sweetish malty affair. Clear burnt orange beer. Ivory head. Clean, hoppy, woody. Not terribly interesting, but drinkable. ABC Liquors, Betton.
