urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2009 Sort of reminds me of a more heavily hopped version of Daleís Pale Ale. A lot of tropical fruit flavors from the hops. Citrusy and sticky and tasty.

RichardGretton (4247) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2009
Can. Dark bronze beer with a strong off white/brownish head. The aroma is lightly hopped, and the flavour is deeply hopped and roasted. Overall a good solid well hopped IPA.

evergreen0199 (2017) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2009
Can from Bellingers, Oxfordshire. An amber pour with decent white head. Hoppy, fruity aroma. Grapefruit, hoppy taste, slightly bitter. Refreshing. Hard to believe this is an IPA from a can. Very nice.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2009
Can thanks to the bosses had at home. Alround rating: Big grassy citrusy bittering hop, fairly peppery and drying, the malt is more pale honey almost than the usual caramalt, but interesting stuff all the same.

CheersMate (1312) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2009
12 oz. can from Johnís Market Place. Nice coppery/brown color. Nice thin head sitting on top. This is a good looking IPA. Ctirus hop aroma with a subtle fruit aroma. Not really smelling the pine hop aroma as some are, but I am sure tasting it. Smooth beer with a nice malt backing that keeps it slightly fruity. The citrus hops are immediately noticeable. The bittering hop just lingers. There is this lingering pine hop that is great. Well balanced IPA. For me it could be slightly more hoppy, but then again it is so well balanced I canít argue that. Good beer, and when I am out on the West Coast next time I plan on investing in more of this stuff.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2009
Hazy amber pour. Thin beige head and spotty lace. Pine and light citrus. Flavor follows suite.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Can. Pours orange gold with huge, fluffy ivory head. The aroma is sticky pine and a refreshingly tart citrus. The flavor is lightly orange with some pine and honey. Thereís a nice assertive bitterness to it, but itís pretty smooth and balanced out by the mild sweetness. Thereís a note of toast there at the finish, and a dry aftertaste. Quite refreshing.

Taverner (1098) - San Ramon, California, USA - AUG 9, 2009
THE best canned IPA ever! Better than Gordon! Better than BFOD! Better than DPA! It just works! Nice soapy head, on a copper pour. Fresh and floral. Lots of grapefruity notes. Finish is bitter, but clean.
