mansquito (5341) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Whole Foods, DC six-pack ($11): Pours a light amber with a very proper head. Aroma of malts, grapefruit, and pina. Obviously the fruity aromas come from the citrusy hops. The taste is pretty hoppy and leaves some aftertaste, but there is a very solid malt backbone in there as well. Very well-balanced with different flavors popping up throughout. Hops are definitely not one dimensional in this beer.

From can. WOW WOW WOW, what a surprise this was! I was not expecting much from this can other than the amazing artwork. Hops in your face nose, apricot, delicious, hops and a mouth puckering bitter finish. One of my favorites in a can, definitely. IPA lovers buy this and do not look back. Surprisingly fresh.

beerandIT (300) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Pours a golden brown with a nice amount of carbonation. I think using a can really helps to preserve this IPA and it is still rather fresh. I definitely would recommend to pour this one in a glass though. The aroma is rather simplistic as I get hops, along with citrus mixing in. There is a large amount of head on the initial pour as well. I can taste hops, malts, lots of bittering hop flavors coming through very strong all the way through the finish.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2011
From notes: Pours a dark golden copper/amber color with dark ruby red edges hen held to a light source and a massive frothy three finger off-white head. Excellent retention, only slowly fading into a thick lasting cap that leaves sporadic chunks of soapy lacing left behind. Sweet citrus hop aroma with hints of pineapple, range peel, mango along with subtle earthy pine, subtle light fruit and alcohol. On the lighter end of medium bodied with a nice balance of sweet citrus, earthy hops and malt backbone. Not overly bitter with hints of grapefruit and pineapple as well as some pine needle and biscuit/graham cracker malt. Slightly dry finish. Decent but nothing out of the ordinary.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2011 From the Can at Olive Tree Market Tasting room. Soft nose. Lovely amber colour. Really hoppy. Lots of grapefruit. Uncomplex hoppy drinking. Becoming a huge fan of the can in delivering top beer!

Arayaga2 (2122) - portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 28, 2010
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 its dry, biscuity and drinkable. $2/12oz
