Nice beer in general. Best part tome is the assertive hop character in a canned beer. My new favorite for the golf course. Strong west coast flavor (pine and grapefruit)

Bottle; poured a really nice looking amber color ith a medium to large, and firm, white head. Aroma was a nice blend of citrus, grapefruit, pine, herbs, and BO, with a bit of caramel and toffee. A bit buttery in the flavor, which was not great. Some nice pine and citrus, but a bit too much of the unpleasant maltiness. Still it was a pretty solid beer overall.

Can, $2.15 at Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours an amber-orange with a small off-white head. Mainly pine in the nose, with some grapefruit. Heavy, bitter pine flavor.Some lingering pepper in the finish.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Colorful can. Pours monstrously chill-hazed orange with a lacy white head. Aroma of apricots with a smidge of grapefruit and tofee. Medium body and low carbonation. Sweet taste of toffee citrus and fruit, with a dry pine and grapefruit finish. You might disagree with the hops profile, but this beer delivers what IPAs are supposed to do. Well, that plus the chill haze.

Qiuite possibly my first IPA out of a can. As someone previously mentioned a novelty purchase at $13.50/6-pack at Cape Wine and Spirit in Lewes, DE. Tastey IPA but nothing mind-blowing here. A solid IPA but nowhere near worth the price.

Pour is an orange with a small almost flat head. Aroma is is hoppy with more of a sweet malt taking over the hops profile. Flavor is where the hops kick in. Hops dominate most everything from the first sip to the swallow but finishes quite dry. A decent offering but quite expensive at $11.99 a six. Probably paying for the novelty of the can.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 16, 2009
Can from Santa. Thanks! Pours a semi-thin cheddar orange with a lively body and a head of white that leaves a nice latticework of lacing around the glass. Aroma is almost pure hopyy grapefruit; hints of pine and orange are in there as well but the dominant figure here is grapefruit. Flavor is dominated by the aforementioned frut, with bits of orange and pine in the finish. Full, coating, tingly mouthfeel. A great IPA; I want more of this.

This beer struck me as a very malt-forward IPA; lots of caramel was evident from start to finish in both its aroma and flavor. Even itís color, in a different sense, could be described as caramel. It was a pretty good beer, but I prefer my IPAs to be a little more hop dominant, and a little less malty. I enjoyed it, but I didnít think it was anything to write home about. Color was a dark rich amber color, with a good amount of head. Aroma was malt first, with lots of caramel notes and some hoppiness. Flavor was exceedingly balanced, more like an amber ale than an IPA, with the hops just barely peeking out from behind more caramel flavor. Mouthfeel was light, crisp, and pleasant. Quite a satisfying beer, but it didnít really scratch my itch for hops. A huge thank you to JaBier for gifting me a can of this beer; otherwise I probably never would have tried it.

Pours a clear coppery amber color. Moderate white head with decent retention. Lots of pine and a hint of citrus in the aroma. Flavor is bittering hops with a note of caramel malt. Bitter finish. Moderate mouthfeel. Good IPA. Bonus points for the can, making this a beer you can take on summer outings.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Can. Body is a clear orange with a nice head and gives off aromas of pine, sweet malt and honey-like sweetness. flavor is similar and has a sharp crispness to it that is pleasant. Just a hint of metal interferes with the palate a bit, but never becomes too problematic. Good stuff in a can.
