COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Extensively hopped and dryhopped with a big roster of hops – Simcoe, Centennial, Cascade, Ahtanum, Chinook, and Amarillo – it’s big, bright, and floral, with just enough malt to balance. This American-style I.P.A. stands head and shoulders above its hoppy brethren, blending pale and honey malts to balance the palate without interfering in your herbal reverie, and creating a new American classic.

6 weeks before best by date - doesn’t taste fresh per se. More bitter floral and herbal, less citrus and pine. The full feel for the style would be better in a fresher beer. As it was it was just pretty good.

Stellar ipa. As the name says, this one has a strong floral aroma and hoops. Not too bitter and slightly dry on the finish. Slight citrus notes balance out this beauty. Had at home out of a can. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can at Lincoln Wine Bar. We were generally mixed on it--a few didn’t really like it, but MB and I thought it was solid. Standard fair, grapefruit and pine etc, but done well.

ben4321 (4543) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Location: 12 oz can from Nikki’s Liquors, 5/10/15

Aroma: It has a decent hop aroma, with some citrus, floral notes, pale malts and light pine needles
Appearance: A somewhat cloudy orange color with a thick foam of white head and heavy lacing
Flavor: Pretty clean flavor, a little sweetness, floral and citrus mid-palate, piney mid-bitter finish
Palate: The body is medium, smooth and clean feel, soft carbonation, and a mid-dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a solid IPA. I liked the aroma and flavor well enough, but it isn’t a standout. It is a plenty decent canned IPA.

Aroma is dank hops, spices and yeast. The flavor is citrus, fruit, mild/medium hop resin, malts and a mix of dry/bitter and relatively slight heat in the finish.

PorterPounder (6043) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - Quick N’ Save - 12 oz can. Hazy, light orange pour with a bubbly white head that hangs around a while, Solid aroma of spruce and mint. Flavor has some strong grapefruit notes, some solid caramel maltiness, some earthy spiciness to it with nice bitterness in the backend. Full spritz in the mouthfeel. First I have had from this brewer - will keep my eye out.

can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Slightly hazy medium amber, white head cover, streaks and swirls of lace. Strong aroma of citrus hops. Taste is solid caramel malt that is joined right away by big citrus hops. Both sides fight for dominance through a long finish in which the hops finally win out. A pretty solid IPA.
