35,5cl blikje via Firma Bier Alcoholpercentage van 6,1% Uitgeschonken in Kaapse Brouwers glas Uiterlijk: oranjekleurig met redelijke schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: fruitig als perzik/abrikoos, bloemig, hoppig, bittertje Conclusie: IPA uit blik, valt me reuze mee wat dat betreft. Is alleen qua aroma niet zo sterk. Smaak wel aangenaam. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Une IPA subtilement parfumé, pas bourrine, des notes de fruit doux et compoté sur une base maltée savoureuse. Originale pour une américaine le tout servis dans des canettes au design magnifique. Great!

Bulk_Carrier (2541) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2015
This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a nice hazy burnt golden orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Light lacing speckled the glass nicely. The smell had a sweet to bitter citrus rind with a sharp pine rolling in to balance. The taste was mainly a sweet to bitter blend of citrus and pineyness. A lingering bittersweet pine invades in the aftertaste and leads to a bitter finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation pounded appropriately to provide a nice harshness strutting over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that I would have again.

UXO (675) - CANADA - APR 21, 2015
Pours clear pale amber with three fingers of off-white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, moderately well-defined lacing. (4/5) Nose is bright citrus, tropical fruit, mild grainy caramel malt, very slight onion and garlic. (7/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderately strong bitter. (8/10) Medium body with a slightly oily texture, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (3/5) A nice balance of Amarillo, Centennial, and Simcoe - there’s a lot of bright citrus and pleasant tropical fruit, with an interesting savoury aspect that really does come through as onion and garlic, especially on the aftertaste. (But not in a negative way.) (15/20)

Great IPA! Beautiful citrus and resin profile. Heavy citrus and pine bitterness. A bit of a sweet caramel and grainy malt. Grass and fruit notes. Good bitterness on the finish. Astringent, resin smack. Nice brew.

This blew me away for a $3 single can I bought to try. Nice and citrusy with a bitter hop bite. Nice malty backbone. Yum!

355ml can pours a golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine with hints of grapefruit and caramel. Taste is a pine and grapefruit hop bitterness with a grainy caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, a pretty decent IPA that should be tasted.
