Can at Stockholm Beer Festival 2008. A light amber beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of grass and grapefruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of grass and grapefruit, leading to a dry and very bitter finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz can via Liquid SOl. Pours a semi clear dark amber with an average head. Nose is floral earthy hops. Taste is malty up front, toasted grains, biscuits, toffee followed by some earthy citrusy hops and a bit of orange in the finish. Body is light/medium, carbonation is moderate. A refreshing stright forward easy drinking IPA. Very well-done. Extra point for a can and a cool design!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can pours clear gold with copper core and white head of foam. The aroma is malty and biscuit maltiness mixed with some pine, tangelo and other assorted citrus notes. The taste begins with a pulse of malt sweetness as pine and grapefruit hop bitterness build quickly to midway. It ends a bit dry with lingering hop bitterness into the after taste. Tasty brew with nice hoppiness and moderate malty backbone.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can courtesy of I think Ibrew2or3. Pours a clear copper with a one finger off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of citrus and floral hops with sweet malt and a hint of caramel. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness. Very good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Pours a nice golden bronze color with a puffy white head and good lacing. The nose is blooming with citrus and pine, ample hops. The malts are a little lighter. Some toastiness in the flavor along with plenty of bitters in the tail. I like the straight to the point west-coast IPA style hoppiness of this one. Easy drinking too for an IPA. I could drink a 6er.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can! Pours a clear amber with 2 finger creamy head. Nose is floral hops and sour grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit upfront that finishes with a bitter resin that lasts for a while. Not a lot of malt so it’s a bit unbalanced but it gets bonus points coming from a can. Lighter mouth feel. Decent stuff.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Market of Choice in Ashland, OR. I was pleasantly surprised to see a beer of such quality pour out of a can. At first the taste of bitter hops hits your tongue and you think this is a great beer, but unfortunately it leaves strong bitter flavor on the back of your tongue. Good, but could be better.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Market of Choice in Ashland, OR. I wanted to say good things about this brew, as many in Ashland rave about this company. Unfortunately, the more you drink it, the more the bitterness of the hops sticks to the back of your tongue. It was an odd sensation to say the least. Never happened to me before. Maybe because it’s canned??

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Deep copper color with a large sandy colored foamy head. Bright citrus notes with plenty of grapefruit and just a hint of pine. At first I thought that the flavor was subdued on the hops (after a great aroma), but still maintains a decent grapefruit and citrus presence. A smooth maltiness mellows out the flavor before a mild, yet lingering bitters trailer. Drinkable and flavorful IPA; and great from a can!
