3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
IPA’s in a can = win. Picked up a sixer from Midtown. The pour is that bold orange color I love so much from the style. A tall white head forms. The aroma is pretty hoppy, very much in the pine department. Good solid body is a great vehicle for the hops without being overly sticky. A fair amount of bitterness is present, mostly in the way of evergreen and hemp. This is a solid and approachable IPA. I like.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An IPA that knows exactly what it is. Pours rich and amber with a nice white head. Foam sticks pretty well to the glass. The hops in this beer are no joke. Plenty of citrus, pine and resin to go around here. Big but not too big. The only thing missing was something to draw me back from the big hop presence. Alas, nothing. Pretty darn good IPA though. Would drink again at a moments notice if it weren’t so damn expensive.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not quite sure what the beers look like as I drank this straight from the can and it taste dead with some of the beer IPA’s. The aroma is your typical citrusy type but the taste is very crisp, clean and goes down easy with a hint of the hops lingering on the back of your throat but in a good way. Nothing that is overpowering and I strongly recommend this

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This opens with a clear golden body that sits below a tall, thick, long lasting white head.
Subdued malt and hop aroma.
The flavor while not unpleasant is very low for what anyone would expect from a good IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very solid IPA. A little too aggressively hoppy for my taste, but then I’m not the biggest hophead around. I drank some from the can and some from a mug. Nose is nice and citrusy, nice foaming head which leaves some lacing just over the nice brown, hazy coloring.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shipped to my by my wife on a trip out west. Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a dark orange-amber color with huge beige head that lingered and produced great lacing. The aroma was sweetish grapefruit and pine with a light nutty undertone. The flavor was solid grapefruity and piney hops with sweet malts, lemon, nut and caramel elements blending nicely beneath the everpresent hoppiness. the finish was long and hoppy. Fairly full bodied. Quite solid.

Sample from a can at the "Portland? Psh More Like Beerland" tasting on 03/10/10. The beer is a clear orange color with a medium and frothy off-white head that evaporates to an outer ring eventually. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Floral hops and caramel malt in the nose. Medium body with a nice floral hops flavor that is is moderately bitter. Notes of sweet malt and grapefruit as well. The finish is hoppy with a lingering citrus aftertaste. Solid IPA all around.
