Aroma is slightly vegetable, but mostly passion fruit and malt sweetness.
Taste is sweet, slightly onion on the flavor. A bit of wateriness, some passion fruit, and biscuit.
Finish is bitter, and lingers.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Canned. Body was deep copper with a dense light khaki colored head. The aroma was obvious with the grapefruit and even hints of pine resin. There was also some almonds and a little bit of rubber. The taste was dense with lots of grapefruit and some sweetness of almonds to balance it out. Certainly plenty of citrus to keep the hop character up front. A big brew that is pleasant to drink with it’s lightly toasted malt balanced body. Solid and nice to see this in a can.

Smells sweet and piney. Pours with decent creamy white head. It has a biting, but nice bitterness. It lacks a little malty backbone, but is not too bad. The hop character lacks a little character, but quite good. I could drink this quite a bit.

Can, first IPA I found in a can, $13 seemed alittle steep for a six pack, but it is a great IPA. Good hop aroma and a sweet bitter after taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours copper with a big white head that fades quickly. Aroma is piney hops. Taste is piney, earthy hops with a nice malt backbone. It is a little sweet and finishes clean. Good IPA, and its from a can.

Solid beer, perfect for the golf course! Can, in a snifter. Decanting this beer didn’t change the aroma or flavor. Grapefruit. Bitter finish. Heavy body for an IPA.

Hoppy. Grapefruit. Honey. Malty. A very nice IPA that would make a great session beer (if you are like me and want hop bomb session beers). Enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. An almost clear, orange-golden beer, topped by a finger-thick off-white head. Peaches, flowers, pinecones and some maltyness in the aroma. Sure on the hoppy side. The flavor is much the same, not much room left for the malty flavors. Full-bodied and quite dry, finishing with a fine, resiny, hoppy bitterness. Another lovely canned beer, but maybe a bit one-dimensional. Good refreshing qualities in addition to be very tasteful. (090327)
