Clear amber with a cm of dense, dimpled white head. Aroma is hoppy with grapefruit and pineapple. Taste is the same, minus most of the pineapple, and itís dry, biscuity and drinkable. $2/12oz

355ml can - lop-sided trade with Rosenbergh - thanks!
7 Classic biscuitty flapjack sweet hoppy US IPA aroma. Iíve missed it, to be honest, after too many Estonian and Latvian lagers.
4 Rich orange, slightly hazy, off-white ice-cream float head.
7 Big bold fruity new-world hop retronasals, but also slightly soapy. Quite sweet, biscuity malts by the tonne, but not unbalanced.
4 Smooth palate, though perhaps a little sticky. Pleasant carbonation. That 2-row malt dominates the finish, itís so sweet and biscuity. Pretty fasty fruity hops too - a touch peachy, but certainly grapefruit too.
14 Tremendously drinkable, but packed full of flavour. If it was just slightly more attenuated, it would be a stunner.

Canuckale (8) - Alabama, CANADA - OCT 29, 2010 does not count
Just discovered this at whole foods. Recommended by an employee there. What a great find. Excellent hoppy taste. Smooth drinking. Go out and get it.

glennmastrange (2570) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Can. Light caramel for the malt, moderate to heavy pine and some flowery scented hops, light soap for the yeast, with hints of date and pepper in the background. Head is small, creamy, slightly off-white with excellent %100 lacing on the glass and is mostly diminishing. Color is mostly clear light amber. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and harshly bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation and fairly dry finish. This IPAís hop profile is bold and bitter. Itís good beer to have when you plan to have just it, or something just as bitter, cause youíre not going to taste much else after having your first.

decaturstevo (5743) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Orange pour with off white head and lace. Aroma is cat pee and caramel malt. Flavor is a bit dry caramel with decent sweet resiny bitter. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Can served in a tulip. Pours clear dark orange with amber hues and a medium sized off-white-orange head. Average retention and good lacing. Hoppy aroma of pine and citrus. Also has some caramel malt tones. Mildly sweet flavor quickly turns bitter and finishes astringent. Medium body, oily texture. Good hop-forward IPA.

luttonm (3976) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Draft. malty nose, a bit off-sour. Thin white head over amber malting body. Big malting underwrites sweet hop resin that is underwhelming. Pretty good but a bit on the malt forward side

Sammy (10572) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2010
Wierd tasting IPA, thrown in a trade. Starts OK, and then residual odd hop flavours. Medium yellow body, a quarter inch of white foam. A little hop aromas. Not skunky, but just another AMerican IPA to me, with moe astringency than balance. A bit aggressive carbonation.
