Clear deep amber appearance with a large, off white head and good lacing. Spicy, citrusy hop aroma with some floral notes buried beneath all the hoppiness. Taste is doninated by the citrus hops but partners well with the earthy malts to add good balance. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering finish.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2009
DLD 2009, thanks to [?]: Poured from the can, this had a light golden body with a thick white head. It had a soft aroma, citrusy hops over sweet pale malt. The flavor began with a toffee/caramel sweetness, soon balanced (or more) by a sturdy PNW hop bitterness. Not bad.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - APR 27, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2009 Clear copper, sticky dense head, perfect and picturesque. Fresh hop aroma. Caramel malt, holds up big to the strong biting hops. Great on the golf course.

The best IPA in a can and better than most others. Everything you look for in an IPA. Delicious!

topherh (1911) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - APR 21, 2009
Pours coppery with a two finger, fluffy, off white head. Aroma is citrus and piney hops. Flavor is dominated by the hoppy bitterness with not enough malt to balance it out. Thats great if you enjoy hop bombs like me.

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2009
Can. Pours deep copper to deep gold at bottom of glass with 2-finger fluffy white head. Nose is huge hops, melon, grapefruit, mango, berry....marvelous aroma in this!. Tastes very hoppy, mangoey, tangeriney, with caramel malt and strawberry. The nose and flavor in this remind me a lot of Stone 10, but it falls off a bit late and becomes a bit muddled. Nonetheless, this one is a great IPA, with hops out the ass.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - APR 17, 2009
Aroma is slightly vegetable, but mostly passion fruit and malt sweetness. Taste is sweet, slightly onion on the flavor. A bit of wateriness, some passion fruit, and biscuit. Finish is bitter, and lingers. Solid.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2009
(Sample Date: 2/17/2009 Source:Other) 12 oz can. 6.1-6.7% ABV Citrusy hop aroma with some orange blossom and light toasty graininess. Clear light orange golden with big fluffy white head. Grapefruit hop flavor with hefty bitterness along with caramel malt flavor. Dry almost puckering bitter finish

Canned. Body was deep copper with a dense light khaki colored head. The aroma was obvious with the grapefruit and even hints of pine resin. There was also some almonds and a little bit of rubber. The taste was dense with lots of grapefruit and some sweetness of almonds to balance it out. Certainly plenty of citrus to keep the hop character up front. A big brew that is pleasant to drink with it’s lightly toasted malt balanced body. Solid and nice to see this in a can.
