Pours a clear amber with a big off-white head. Aroma is big hops, citrus, and maybe a little spice. Flavor is smooth, big hoppy bite, moderate carbonation. Nice dry finish. Another excellent beer in a can.

can, pours deep carmel with a medium light tan head. Strong hop aroma with citrus tones. Flavor is sweet bready malts with a nutty character that ends with a nice dry hop wallop. Really nice and drinkable.

20091214 12oz can from State Line. Iíll be damned this is one clean, solid IPA. I didnít have high expectations, but came away impressed by the tight hop profile (centennial!) which lends a well tempered amount of bitterness, mostly a bracing grapefruit pith, and sturdy malt backbone, biscuity, but without overdone sweetness. Head is quick to depart and beer is dang clear. Moderate to light carbonation.

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - NOV 23, 2009
12oz can. Pours a slightly hazy golden bronze color topped by a beautiful creamy white head. Aroma is hops, hops, hops with a touch of citrus. Taste is big piney hops with caramel and citrus notes and a mild spiciness. Medium bodied with a bittering finish. A great hop head IPA.

Pours a coppery tan, just a bit more orange than the color of a nice glass of iced tea. Aroma is heavy on caramel and pine, but the flavor profile is clearly influenced by tons of crystal malt (aka lots of sweetness). Thereís a big bite from the hop mix, and the other malts try to tame the sugary Crystal, but canít quite keep up. A bit astringent and twangy at the end, the flavors get a little sloppy. Nice for a canned IPA, but OB Gordon still owns the championship belt.

12oz can at Tapwerks in OKC. Pours orangish copper with large white head. Aroma is hoppy with grapefruit, pine, caramel and sweet malt. Flavor is hoppy and citrusy but there is a large amount of sweet malt that is a little overdone for my palate. Has good hop profile but if do not IPAs that loaded with sweet malt you might not like this one. That being said as far OKC goes this is probably in the top 2 or 3 IPAs available. Glad I was able to try.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Pours a bright clear pramge colour with some alcohol floating around I think, maybe its my beer perspiring, not sure. Huge frothy white head. Instant stanky aroma of wet hops and grapefruit skins. Taste has that grapefruit quality to it where itís initially sweet but it quickly gets bitter near the finish. Took the last few sips out of the can as advised by my buddy. Great beer!"

Got this in a recent beer trade with a friend of mine in Seattle, WA. I was really impressed by how much flavor the hops contributed to the beer. The initial taste was citrusy and somewhat floral hop notes along with some biscuity malt, while the aftertaste was more herbal and grassy hop notes along with sweet biscuity malt. Very Balanced!

This is a lovely protypical west coast IPA. Strong hop aroma and taste but it doesnít overdo it. Easy to drink. nice orange/amber color.
