I’m honestly surprised to see such high ratings across the board for this one. It’s a fine IPA with notes of cedar and grapefruit but nothing luscious or particularly memorable for me here. Perhaps it’s because I’m drinking from a can shipped all the way to VT?

COD 1/27/14 Pours a slightly hazy amber with a hint of red. Outstanding massive head and lasting lacing. The nose is an exceptional blend of grapefruit and other tropicals against a rich caramel sweetness with just a touch of spruce. The body is medium with an almost slick texture. The carbonation level is a bit above normal, which aids the finish. The hop flavor profile is well balanced with malt sweetness. It begins with a grapefruit sweetness, progresses to spruce/pine and flows to a moderate tart bitterness. The finish is a blend of tart bitterness and caramel sweetness.

A nice dark red, copper color. White head that leaves a lot of lacing. Orange, citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit pine, and sweet caramel malt. Bitterness at the end. Great body and medium carbonation. A really good Westcoast-IPA !

RumRunner101 (743) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
Brilliant copper pour with white head. Aroma is juicy grapefruit and cedar. Lots of bitterness up front - grapefruit and pine and some bready malts to cut the bitterness. Finishes with a lingering bitterness and some sweet, fruity malts. Good.

A straight forward enjoyable ipa. Nothing special. Nice head on it. Could be more bitter.

Cloudy amber color. One finger diminishing head. Aroma of floral hops berries and citrus. Sweet taste of honey and citrus hops. Smooth palate. Overall a good IPA.

pslorenz (2) - USA - FEB 12, 2014 does not count
Nothing fancy, but a solid citrusy NW IPA. I think BA scores it an 89. Rusty amber to coppery orange, thin head with appropriate lacing. The A heavy presence or grapefruit, with a little orange and lemon. Moderate pine resin, some malt and biscuit notes round out the relatively balanced aroma. Sweet honey maltyness with hints of caramel and biscuit followed briefly by woodsy, earthy hop presence. The aftertaste yields grapefruit peel and generic citrus. Light carbonation and medium to light body. Overall impression is that this is a tasty malt forward IPA. Hop forward but not overpoweringly so.

Vignale (1990) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2014
Burk från craftbeer/galatea via SB. Klar, bärnsetnsfärgad med högt och gräddigt skum. Fin humledoft med mycket grape, tall och lite tropisk frukt i bakgrunden. Rejäl kropp och tydlig beska. Karamell, tall, grape och lite resin i beskan. Bra straight forward västkust-IPA. Eftersmaken lite småunken med trött humle, annars helt okej.
