Can. Deep amber pour. Lovely juicy hop aroma, but lots of bitter grapefruit pith in the flavor. Pretty dry, powerfully hopped, nice and drinkable. Pretty darn solid beer.

Wombata (467) - Kobe, JAPAN - SEP 7, 2009
Color: Reddish brown Aroma: Slightly musty, distinct basil, floral, fresh resinous hop Flavor: Initially smooth fruity malt followed by an intense bittering hop attack with bitter grapefruit and grapefruit rind, basil and resins on the mid-palate and finish. Comment: Starts with a deceptive balance of malt and hop and then the hop bitterness explodes and carries though the finish.

humulushound (242) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2009
Pours amber-gold with a foamy white head. The thing that I loved about this was the aroma, strong citrus-floral hops abound with a hint of malt, very fresh smelling. Taste is just-cut grapefruit, light caramel and a bitter, resinous finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and clean with a light to medium body. Very drinkable and good quality for the price, especially from the can.

lamas (1368) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Can. Pours a clear copper with a smallish tan head. Nice balance in the aroma with plenty of caramel and vanilla to offset the pine and grapefruit. Medium body. Fair balance taste-wise too. Starts off with some earthy caramel flavors. Light vanilla follows. Finishes with plenty of bitter grapefruits. A solid IPA.

12 oz can purchased as a single at Oliver or Twist in Platte City, Missouri. Pour is mostly clear copper golden with a two inch off white head. Head is lasting, when it falls it leaves behind nice lacing. Aroma of fresh citrus (orange and pineapple) and resin hops with a nice caramel malt backbone. Nicely balanced nose. Taste is more resin than citrus, but is certainly the hops out of the gate. The resin is earthy and woody. The caramel malt is big as well. Balance is nice, as with the nose. Palate is medium, pretty heavy IPA mouthfeel. Carbonation is low, and the finish is minerally, almost dirty. Nice enough IPA.

Holdwine (1082) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 2, 2009
I needed a can to bring to a NASCAR event and this IPA was suggested. What a winner! And in a can! Nice but very strong piney nose. may have lost points because I couldn’t see it. Slight malt buildup sits down as you descend into a wonderful bitter lemongrass finish.

tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Poured a sunset orange with a small white head. Nose was big and hoppy, some citrus but dominated with pine. Taste is clean, nice monotone toffee body with a very clean hpop bitterness and great chinook flavor.

Jayb0 (1048) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Nice, left coast IPA with all the fruity, resiny hops one could want and a decent malt assertiveness to hold it together.

12 oz can from OTM. Pours a strong golden orange brown. Medium sized off white head with a clear body full of small bubbles. Nose is intense with hops. Mostly pineapple and pine tones. Malt is nice on the nose as well. Flavors are a little thin at first. Hop flavors are nice but a little muted compared to the nose. Still good though. Nice mild happiness. The Munich malts seem to push through the most on the malt side. Nice creamy mouth with s nice very dry too with some bitterness.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Poured clear and copper with a one-finger tall white head and moderately sticky lacing. The aroma was well balanced between pine hops, caramel sweetness and some old bud. The flavor is on the bitter side, with pine and orange rind winning out over caramel and fruity sweetness. Average mouthfeel.
